There’s even a mixtape that will be dedicated to the spirit of the hip-hop festival. The production team Royal Flush (Big Boi’s “Mama Told Me”) has joined forces with fellow Atlanta team SMKA to compile their second project that will feature tracks from some of 2012′s A3C performers. The Juice was at Stankonia Studios on Friday to talk with both groups and witness a bit of the work process.

“People are lining up to be a part of this tape,” says Rick Wallkk of Royal Flush. “It surprised us.”

While there, Slum Village had chosen an airy track reminiscent of springtime turning to summer. “It started off as an idea,” adds Jeron Ward of the Flush. “Mike [Walbert ]of SMKA hit us up a year and a half ago and came up with this concept of using A3C as a meeting ground and our access to Stankonia since this is where we work, in order to create a session as soon as people get off stage.”

“We’re pretty much putting A3C into music format,” Ward explains, “So people can get a chance to somewhat experience an audio version of how A3C really goes down.” On the second day of the festivities the compilation, which will be sponsored by LiveMixtapes.com, was already 40% complete, with the full project and trailer slated for release within two to three weeks. SMKA’s Blake “808 Blake” German sums the weekend up perfectly, while speaking on the joint project: “At the end of the day it’s all about the vibe, man.”
