Migos (Quavo, Offset, Takeoff) are teasing the release of their forthcoming debut full length album (hot off dropping consistent mixtape after consistent mixtape — not to mention their hit single “Versace” was certainly no “one hit wonder”) which arrives June 16th. They’ve already shared one single in “One Time” (get at it here) and by the looks of this new loosie entitled “Stankin'” it’s staying that way for the time being. The new cut features one time (no pun intended) Atlanta frontrunner Trinidad James. Sadly, he’s fallen onto some hard times as far as his relevance in the game. Anyway, get at the new Migos track after the jump!
Manolo Rose’s violent Boyz n the Hood-inspired “Run Ricky Run!” gets a vocal treatment from New Atlanta’s OG Maco. And listening to the track OG Maco’s contribution is pretty spot-on, as his aggressive ad-libs add a certain level of permeating tension. Listen after the jump.
Metro Thuggin, the collaborative project between Atlanta super producer Metro Boomin and the always entertaining and idiosyncratic Young Thug, has been awaiting to see the light of day. With the exception of a few loosies here and there, there hasn’t really been much in the way of Metro Thuggin. However, this all may change in 2015, as they prep the release of their collaborative studio offering. Here we are treated to two cuts in “Speed Racer” and “Warrior.” Listen to both after the jump!
Drake’s recent signee iLoveMakonnen (whom he collaborated with on “Tuesday”) is set to release his forthcoming project Drink More Water 5 any day now and to tease the release he is sharing “Super Clean.” “Super Clean” is co-produced by Phantom Power. Listen after the jump.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, Atlanta OG Gucci Mane will approximately be spending the next 39 months in federal prison. And with that fellow Atlantan Young Scooter, who isn’t exactly cool with the sentencing, is paying tribute to the 1017 Bricksquad head honcho with “Free Guwop.” Peep Young Scooter’s “Free Guwop” after the jump.
During this year’s Fool’s Gold Day Off in Atlanta, Travi$ Scott performed at The Masquerade where he was joined by ATL’s very own Young Thug for a live rendition of their song, the Metro Boomin produced “Skyfall”. Watch as the two tear down the club during their performance after the jump.
Young Thug to the rescue! It’s safe to say if you’re in desperate need for a dope hook or unique verse to set your song over the top then Thugger is your go-to guy. And on DJ Drama’s “Right Back” that very notion rings true, as Thugger Thugger handles hook duties, chorus duties, and has the most memorable verse amongst Young Jeezy and Rich Homie Quan. The Young Thug stimulus package is too strong. Listen after the jump for proof.
Besides topping the charts on Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” single, Juicy J has had himself an awfully quiet 2014 thus far. But have no fear, as the Juice Mane stay trippy even when you’re least suspecting. And today the Memphis OG shared a new track “Ice” featuring Future and A$AP Ferg. The track is also produced by frequent collaborator Mike Will Made It. It bangs. After the jump!
Gucci once stated he’s “…the god of making music people trap to” and with the incessant flooding of the streets with bangers it’s evident that Big Guwop wasn’t playing. His Trap God series is perhaps the best example of the aforementioned. And for the upcoming third installment of the Trap God series Gucci teams up with master ATL producer Zaytoven for “So Hoody”. After the jump.
2 Chainz stands by his reputation as a reliable feature artist by giving Jessie J a helping hand on her latest song “Burnin’ Up”. The song is the first single from Jessie’s forthcoming Sweet Talker album, out Oct. 14. Listen after the jump.
Migo Gang OG, squad! New Atlanta’s favorite hip-hop trio has teamed up with the King of ATL, T.I. for a track entitled “Trouble”. The track features production from TM 808 and is a certified banger for sure. This will certainly bang in your whip. Listen after the jump.
ATL alternative Raury drops this hammer on Sway’s show, declaring himself a unique breed of artist with an
Outkast outcast’s view. The Dre Benjamin influence only peeks through and what a welcome sight it is as the eclectic Atlanta scene grows further. Better than that: it’s improvised. Check the cameo after the jump.
The kick and the snap on this one makes it the ideal blend of ATL crunk and Bay Area bounce. This duo could put out an album of only these and we’d be cool. Rich Homie is a revivalist in this unique way, finding a groove where his melodies fit and sticking to it. Check the fraternity stepper inspired video after the jump.
