It’s a southern connection.
Yo Gotti is a revered figure for helping mold the now dominant trap subgenre. From his 23-year residency to consistently supplying hits–like “Down in the DM”, “Act Right”, and “Rake It Up”–Yo Gotti’s legacy is unquestioned.
But part of the CMG captain’s influence extends past his direct musical output into his championing of burgeoning acts: Blac Youngsta and Moneybagg Yo are signed to his label; he’s consistently working with up-and-coming talent, directly and implicitly. Today, he’s teamed up with arguably Atlanta’s hottest artist, Lil Baby, on “Put A Date On It”.
Produced by June James, the new Lil Baby x Yo Gotti features the two artists from different generations circling one absolute truth: a premium on braggadocious raps and catchy flows.
