If you were anywhere near Turner Field last Saturday you may have noticed the huge crowds of hip-hop heads that descinded upon the stadium. The georgeous Spring day brought out a ton of ATLiens as all were there to support the 3rd Annual A-Town Day. The event, a celebration of Atlanta, was host to a large group of up and coming Atlanta artists as well as some hometown favorites like Bone Crusher, DG Yola, Slim Calhoun, Big Rube, Rich Boi and more.
There were festivals, concerts and several professionals on hand to spread awareness on topics such as diabetes, cancer and fire prevention. The event was presented by the B-AWARE foundation and proceeds went towards the Georgia Transplant Foundation, the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for Performing Arts and the Atlanta Braves Foundation.

One particular surprise guest, who happened to stick out like a sore thumb amongst the sea of ATL hip-hoppers, attempted to grace to stage to say “Hello” to her fans but was put on hold by the organizers. This housewife strutted her stuff through Turner Field, flossing her latest Vuitton bag and “SHE” also flaunted her new clothing line. “SHE” eventually got tired of waiting and promptly left the venue to avoid further embarrassment.
Can you guess who “SHE” is… 😆 More A-Town day flix + the great reveal under the cut:
