Today ChooseATL, a movement dedicated to attracting and retaining top talent in the Atlanta metro area has announced that our good friend Killer Mike will headline the ChooseATL stage at SXSW.
The Austin Speakeasy stage will be transformed into the ‘ChooseATL House’ on March 13-14. The 2 day experience will also include groundbreaking industry announcements and memorable parties. The stage also includes more than 30 Georgia based music artist.
If you’re unfamiliar with Killer Mike do your research because this rapper/activist has been featured on CNN, talk shows and he even had a sit down with Bernie Sanders when the presidential candidate visited Atlanta.
“Long before Atlanta was dubbed the ‘hip hop center of gravity,’ we were known as ‘the city to busy to hate’ said Killer Mike. “The legacies of local civil rights icons, like MLK and congressman John Lewis, have inspired generations of music artist like myself to use our platforms to advance society’s most pressing causes. I look forward to sharing powerful stories to motivate the people at SXSW to continue working towards opportunity and prosperity for all.”
