It’s very uplifting to see people who will do anything to make their dreams a reality. I don’t even know Palermo Stone and his crew of artists but I was watching this documentary like a proud momma…so proud.

During the A3C festival, one of the many extravagant music events that occurs in the states, many travel to experience the abundance of new talent and familiar faces, crossing paths and building new found relationships destined for greatest. In this video, we get to see just one of the journeys taken on this pilgrimage for music in hopes of being hailed as “the next to shine”.

Palermo Stone, along with Beedie, AF Rome, and The Come Up Boys venture from Pittsburgh to ATL with excitement, joy, and passion to accomplish one thing: put on an amazing, momentous show. The moment I really lived for was towards the end, when a very thoughtful accolade was given to Palermo; a moment I know most artist appreciate because this industry can be so cold blooded. Nothing but well wishes to you guys. Hope you get to make it out to ATL real soon.

Album: Grandad Woolly – The Vanilla Tape

 

Currently residing in Atlanta, Granddad Woolly‘s sound contains elements of Old School, Golden Era, Boom Bap and Sci-Fi Hip Hop. The fact that his career is based off a long running novel like storyline as well as his unique songwriting, lyricism and delivery makes him someone to keep an eye on.  An artist who remains true to his style and craft, Grandad Woolly never boxes himself and comes off predictable.  His latest project The Vanilla Tape serves as a self reflection through music dealing with all of the obstacles and achievements that have been thrown his way up to now.  The first free project Woolly has offered in more than 5 years, production on The Vanilla Tape was created solely by UK producer Vanilla providing the most musically and soul inspired Granddad Woolly project to date.
