The artists performing ATLiens include: Nappy Roots, Nick Grant, Kelechi, Skyzoo, Chase N Cashe, J-Live, Deante’ Hitchcock, Izzy Jone$, Chilly Chills, Michael Aristotle, 3D Na’Tee, Forte Bowie, Phay, Goldyard, Yani Mo, Apollo Ali, Jaye Newton, Jack Preston and special guests.
This show will take place on Saturday, Oct 7th as part of the 1996 Show with Bone Thugs, Too Short, Redman with Def Squad and Bun B... all of whom released classic albums in 1996.
