Highly respected promoter, Fadia Kader has paired up with the Leaders of the New Cool team of Hollywood East Entertainment, Free Integrated Media and Soul Rebel NYC, to present this special engagement featuring performances by artists who have previously graced her stages in Atlanta as well as Leaders of the New Cool stages across the country during the past year. All of these artists share one major factor: their ability to redefine the current urban music landscape.

URB is one of North America’s longest running and most trusted independent music publications, covering emergent music and the lifestyles that surround it. Fadia Kader is one of Atlanta’s premier planners of major events and promotions. In addition to her exclusive promotion of Drake’s debut Atlanta performance, Fadia has developed and executed such major events as The Goodie Mob Reunion, and Atlanta’s annual A3C Hip Hop festival. As the Leaders of the New Cool traveling showcase and Internet movement has made its rounds in cities including New York City, Chicago, Atlanta and Los Angeles, it has quickly be-come a nationally recognized “go-to” for those looking to discover what and who defines the “new cool,” as well as an opportunity for emerging artists to gain exposure.
