One of the expected highlights of this year’s A3C Festival is no longer performing.
Upstart Atlanta rapper 21 Savage was nixed from Sunday’s lineup due to “unforeseen circumstances.” None of the artist’s social media accounts indicate any issues; his most recent tweet posted Friday and simply said, “ready to go on tour” and a new photo was posted on his Facebook page Saturday afternoon.
Festival organizers say “a few surprise acts” will take his place. Also scheduled to perform Sunday at the Festival Grounds (at Chamberlain and Boulevard in The Old Fourth Ward) are Cousin Stizz, Masego, Alex Wiley, Jerreau, Tate Kobang and more. The Beat Junkies will spin all day at the Toyota DJ House and Master P’s No Limit Boys, Mystikal, Silkk The Shocker and Snootie Wild will wrap the evening.
21 Savage, whose latest EP, “Savage Mode” with Metro Boomin’, arrived in July, was part of XXL magazine’s influential 2016 Freshman Class lineup.
