Rap legend Nas, far right, hosted the A3C after-party at the Gold Room in Atlanta after performing at the A3C Music Conference on Sunday. Pictured with him are rapper Dave East, left, and music producer Jermaine Dupri, center, backstage at the A3C.

The A3C Music Conference & Festival, held annually in Atlanta, is a mandatory destination for up-and-coming rappers to learn the ropes from the rap legends and icons who blazed the trail before them.

Nas partied with rapper Li’l Cease (white tee). Others seen on the scene included music producers Just Blaze, DJ Toomp, and more.

  • Isignedup4this

    Nas is super fine because of looks and his intellect. Dave East is fine to look at. Don’t know much about him. But the label whoring amongst this race needs to stop, that’s just too much Gucci that won’t add a cent to your own worth. One reason I appreciate Kendrick Lamar, j. Cole, and Eminem is due to their craft of hear me and not see me. Lol. Took me a while to get into J.cole b/c I had to see the bigger picture of hearing him and not having to glorify his shell. It’s time we advance on the message and not the look.

  • Hugga Bunch

    I’m just glad he washed up somewhere.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Dave East fine as hell but he always looks so blazed in his pics. I cant stand a fine man who smokes loud all the time. Went out on a date with this dude got in his car as soon as I walked up I could smell it. Chile not even ten minutes into the ride his head bobbing down at the stop light. It happened again on a cross street like a min later. Brotha just slowed down the car like something in a damn movie. Once I yelled he stopped the car I got out and got a lyft. Im all down for partaking and talking to Bob Marley once in a while but damn… He was a good looking man good job but that weed ish will have you out here looking like shorty bus shorty…

  • Darkandlovely617?
