After performing on an A3C showcase, most artists network and "politick" by handing out CD's, exchanging social media handles or handing out merch.  Meet the artist who took to the streets of Edgewood Avenue during Atlanta's A3C to give everyone a show after he stepped off stage (two showcases to be exact).  His hustle and innovation led to immediate cosigns from Peter Rosenberg, DJ Greg Street and Trinidad James.  World, meet DAEtrius and the #WHEREISPERCYPARK movement.

 How do you feel about the Atlanta's music scene? 

Atlanta, is in a good place and sonically we are thriving. However, I feel like with diversity emerging in the Atlanta underground we could use The P.E.R.C.Y. PARK landscape as a contending frontrunner...music that touches the people.  It's why performing on a stage isn't enough for me.  Performing on the sound truck at A3C allowed me to get with the people.

What do you want your legacy to leave via music, art, etc...

I want my legacy to be authenticity, a true voice of the people.  My art is for those who are searching for understanding and those that may be misunderstood or misrepresented...people who want to be understood and not interpreted.  I feel like we all have so many layers.  We're all like fabric...on the surface appearing one way, but when you get up close, it's we're so intricate.  It represents both who we are and who we're becoming.  I want to be a symbol of growth and a testament of understanding.

Explain the acronym/meaning behind P.E.R.C.Y Park. 

P.E.R.C.Y. stands for a Portrayal of Emotions in ou(R) Careless Youth.  Park symbolizes the fact that the world is a playground.  We all live in P.E.R.C.Y. Park.

Favorite artist(s) and Why?

Jay Z , Outkast, and Tupac because they all embody the things that help shape my thinking: Charisma, Awareness and Authenticity.

Explain your music in one sentence. 

My music is about choices, the place we reside between heaven and hell....both thoughtful and carefree.

Stream "P.E.R.C.Y. Park Anthem" and the A3C x #WHEREISPERCYPARK recap video below and let us know your thoughts on DAEtrius's  movement.  Follow DAEtrius on Instagram, Twitter and Soundcloud: @daetrius

NEWS RELEASE

October 20, 2015

PURE ATLANTA HOSTS COOGI'S READY 2 DIE EXHIBIT IN ATLANTA

(Atlanta, GA) PURE Atlanta, one of Atlanta's preferred men's boutiques will host COOGI'S Atlanta launch of Ready 2 Dye on Thursday, October 22nd in their flagship store located in Lenox mall. The event is a joint collaboration between COOGI, One Grand Gallery and PURE Atlanta. In addition to COOGI'S new fall line, One Grand Gallery will showcase exclusive pieces honoring the late Notorious BIG. There will be an artistic musical interpretation produced by PURE Atlanta, along with a special presentation by actor Jamal Woolard. Many will remember Woolard for his larger than life re-enactment of Biggie in the 2009 biopic Notorious. PURE Atlanta will donate a portion of proceeds from the event to the Atlanta Youth Alliance.

Ready 2 Die is based on four key principles surrounding COOGI'S contribution to Biggie's legacy; Reflect, Honor, Inspire and Evolve. COOGI seeks to create an experience that will allow the industry to pay homage to the essence of the 1990's especially as it relates to its visual aesthetics. COOGI also hopes to inspire the ever-growing art culture movement, while providing an artistic experience that will evolve from the wholesale and retail experience.

"It's an honor for PURE to bring this to Atlanta," says PURE owner Liz Korn, "we are longtime supporters of the authentic hip hop community; past and present." PURE Atlanta is a high-end men's contemporary boutique in Atlanta's Lenox Square with a curated assortment of exclusive lines such as Balmain, Versace, MCM, etc. PURE enjoys an extensive clientele of athletes, recording artists and fashion influencers.

Uniting art, music and fashion through charitable projects like PURE Atlanta x COOGI x One Grand Gallery, PURE Atlanta bridges the gap between fashion, lifestyle and community. "We are excited to have Atlanta be the springboard for this type of PURE collaboration; but look forward to adding similar experiences in our Charlotte and Houston stores," Korn says. "We have been looking for opportunities to celebrate art and fashion, and COOGI presents the perfect opportunity for us to start initiating projects in that space."

Recognized for its rich history worldwide, COOGI is an iconic brand known for its bold designs, luxury knits and colorful palette. The U.S. adopted the kaleidoscopic-patterned sweaters made famous by Notorious B.I.G. in the 1990's and was honored by being inducted into the Collection of the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum for its knitted technique.

Ready 2 Die impacts Atlanta on Thursday, October 22nd. The private event is invite only and is sponsored by Effen Vodka.
