The FADER Fort's showcase at A3C went down last week, and even we aren't sure how we managed to cram so much great music into three wild days. As our first-ever exhibition at the Atlanta music festival got rowdy, we spoke with a number of the performing artists backstage for a series of revealing video interviews. BJ The Chicago Kid, Lil Keed and Lil Gotit, Yung Baby Tate, Jetsonmade and Digital Nas, Pink Sweat$ and Lion Babe all gave us unique and candid scoops before tearing it down. Check them all out below:

Two of the hottest names in rap are also brothers, so naturally, watching Lil Keed and Lil Gotit interview each other is charming as hell. Being from Atlanta, they also give outsiders a peek on their favorite things about the city.
