ATLANTA (CelebrityAccess) — Rapper and entrepreneur Tauheed Epps, AKA 2 Chainz, has acquired an ownership stake in Atlanta’s A3C Festival & Conference.
“We’re excited to announce that Atlanta’s very own @2chainz has acquired a stake in A3C and has joined the new ownership group. He will be a creative curator and advisor involved in developing the experience in 2019 and for years to come,” the festival said in a statement on their Instagram account.
The festival and conference focus on the nexus of music, tech, film and culture and bills itself as “connecting, educating and inspiring the next-generation of innovators and entrepreneurs shaping the future.”
Now in its 15th year, the festival and conference hybrid is scheduled to take place from Oct. 10 to Oct. 12 at the Atlanta Convention Center at AmericasMart and Hotel Indigo Downtown.
Featured speakers and performers for the 2019 edition of the event include T.I., Charlamagne Tha God, Megan Thee Stallion, Gary Vaynerchuck, Bozoma St. John, 2 Chainz, Kevin Liles, Amber Grimes, Jermaine Dupri, and Cortez Bryant, among others.
In an interview with Entrepreneur 2 Chainz discussed the importance of investing: “You know, I have investments with Lyft. I have investments with Airbnb. I have investments with Polycade. If one falls on its face, will I be mad? No, because I felt really good about the space that it’s in. If Lyft goes out of business, will I be mad? If Lime goes out of business? Nah. Some of those things, you just can’t control. I come from the streets. I come from gambling. I come from hustling. I come from taking chances. It doesn’t bother me, like it may bother someone else. I believe in currency. I believe in circulation. I believe if it comes, and it goes, it can come right back.”
