7. PeeWee Longway
By now if you’ve heard one Atlanta trap rapper you’ve heard them all; for every Gucci Mane there are a thousand clones. But with the “New Atlanta” sound gaining nationwide traction trap rap looks as though it’ll stick around for sometime. Thankfully there’s some diversity in the fold with PeeWee Longway at times outshining some of the bigger names (Young Thug, Rich Homie Quan, Migos) with his intensity and seemingly blackout rage. PeeWee’s got himself a comfy spot in the “New Atlanta” scene.
Sounds Like: Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan’s gritty cousin.
Project(s) to Check Out: The Blue M&M
Upon First Listen: Relatively rudimentary trap rap from Atlanta, PeeWee Longway’s contribution to the current ATL scene can be attributed to his uncompromising intensity.
Notable Line(s): “Hit a nigga ass up with the choppa/ Yellow tape, I’m at the doctor by my potna/ Giuseppe, he stepping at the murder scene/ Fresh as a bitch, cleaner than Listerine”.
Staying Power: It appears as though the “New Atlanta” sound isn’t going anywhere anytime soon so as long as PeeWee stays out of trouble he should fit in nicely in the cleanup spot in the roster.
