New Atlanta’s OG Maco broke out onto the scene with his viral smash “U Guessed It!” but the madman hasn’t stopped putting in work as he dropped the OG Maco EP late 2014 as well as the stellar BREATHE EP. In addition, OG Maco’s affiliation with Quality Control (the label that houses such acts as Migos) is keeping the rapper busy and at the forefront of the New Atlanta movement. Now, Maco teams up with Austin Millz for “New Money” off of his Searching For Gotham compilation. Peep “New Money” after the jump.
2 Chainz is taking you to school. T.R.U. University to be exact. And the professor himself is introducing his faculty staff as well, which includes Cap 1, Skooly, and Fresh (aka Short Dawg). As part of the curriculum you get 17 total tracks, including a number of loosies Mr. Chainz has already shared. The features on T.R.U. Jack City include Travis Porter, Mike WiLL Made-It, PeeWee Longway, Metro Boomin, Young Dolph, 808 Mafia, Zaytoven, DJ Spinz, and London on da Track. Listen to it in full 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!
When 2 Chainz isn’t busy making intelligent arguments for the legalization of marijuana he’s maintaining his career as a rapper. And on this new track he’s also keeping it 100. Cap1, Skooly, Short Dawg, and Kaleb join Mr. Chainz for “Keep It 100” from his T.R.U. Jack City mixtape. Listen after the jump.
“No homo but my blunt look like a d**k” utters Young Thug on “Friend of Scotty” the latest leaked cut from the New Atlanta weirdo. And frankly this may be the strangest, most bizarre track from Thugger Thugger we’ve heard yet. Which I know, in retrospect, may seem like a stretch in a catalog consisting of “Miss U,” “Picacho,” “Lifestyle,” and “Ain’t Trippin'” to name just a few. But seriously, “Friend of Scotty” has the aforementioned blunt to penis analogy as well as talk of pizza pies and their subsequent toppings. Anyway, listen for yourself after the jump.
Future continues his streak of dropping free material after his return to the mixtape circuit in late 2014 with Monster. Now he teams up with fellow Atlantan, one of the city’s most successful producers, Zaytoven. Beast Mode finds Future rapping with little help from others (there is only two features in Young Scooter and Juvenile). Safe to say the current streak Future is on is a welcome return to form for the autotune connoisseur. Stream and download Future and Zaytoven’s Beast Mode EP 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.
The “War Ready” duo of Rick Ross and Jeezy join up once again this time to remix Young Dolph’s “Preach” cut. The Zaytoven produced track originally made its appearance on Dolph’s High Class Street Music 4 mixtape. Listen to Rozay and Jeezy remix Dolph’s “Preach” after the jump.
Trinidad Jame$ is kicking off 2015 with an attempt to return to the collective hip-hop conscious and sadly despite how good Tef Poe’s feature is on this new track, we are highly doubtful this will happen. Check out Jame$ “This America” featuring Tef Poe 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.
OG Maco, the New Atlanta rapper who is perhaps best known for his viral smash “U Guessed It” from earlier this year, has just released his BREATHE EP, the followup to his aggressive and uncompromising OG Maco EP. The BREATHE EP drastically differs from Maco’s previous aforementioned music in that it finds Maco rapping with a clear mind, on civil rights issues in America right now (those being the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, respectively.) The three tracks “Get Down,” “Do Better,” and “Riot” are undoubtedly OG Maco’s most introspective moments in his short catalog and it’s refreshing to hear a quintessential “trap rapper” attempt something different for a change. Stream OG Maco’s three track BREATHE EP after the jump.
iLoveMakonnen teams up with Atlanta’s premiere producer Mike Will for “Swerve” a new track that is featured on Makonnen’s newly re-released self-titled EP. Mike Will’s Ransom release is due out tomorrow. Peep “Swerve” after the jump.
