Cash In Cash Out – [Pharrell Williams] ft. [21 Savage] & [Tyler, the Creator]

There is no denying that when certain artists are featured on a song, it is going to immediately receive millions of plays and be heard all over the world. Some musicians just have that it factor that isn’t attainable, it’s just something they’re born with, and if you have any reason to say that Pharrell doesn’t have it, then I think you need to take a one-way trip to the hospital for a checkup. The same goes for Tyler, the Creator and 21 Savage, and although all three of these artists are cut from completely different cloths, they just know how to make a song good, and that is more than clear in the Pharrell-produced song “Cash In Cash Out” that just dropped a few days ago. Whether we’re talking about the impeccable instrumental from Skateboard P, the addicting hook and first verse from 21, or Tyler’s second verse that really drives things home and completes this song in the hardest, most enthralling fashion possible, there isn’t a single part of this record that’s imperfect. Although this isn’t a surprise, it’s just so cool to see these three diverse musicians come together and knock it out of the park in …

Already Better! (MHM!) – [2face Pronto]

2face Pronto is one of the more intriguing artists coming out of the west side of Atlanta. Today he dropped off a brand new single produced by j4yr1zzy entitled “Already Better.” I came across Pronto’s music via the recommendation of a producer I work with. Once I checked out the TikTok and the rest of his snippets I slowly started to dive deeper into his discography. The thing that I gravitated to was how bouncy his flow was and how different his voice inflections were. It reminded me of how two other prominent Atlanta artists I know flow on a track and those are Young Thug and Sofaygo. Of course, 2face Pronto has a while to get to that point but after chopping it up with him via dm I got a better understanding of who he was and his method behind the madness. He’s still a teenager at 18, but he’s going to turn 19 next month. Even though he’s from the westside of Atlanta he expressed to me that some of his inspirations include Young Thug, Fetty Wap, Lil Wayne, 21 Savage, Kodak, Migos, 90s R&B, and more. Even though he only started making music in 2020, he …

Different – [Kuttem Reese]

It’s no secret that the Florida rap scene has a special place in my heart, but even after finding out about a ton of different artists throughout the years, there are a few that always stand out to me, and I know that whenever they drop something new, I have to tune in. Kuttem Reese is an artist who I found out about later than most, but ever since I first heard some of his music, I knew that he was a force in the music business, and I have been tapping in every chance I get. After receiving nods from superstars like 21 Savage, Lil Durk, Rod Wave, and fellow Floridian Hotboii, the 20-year-old talent has been amassing millions of plays and views which in turn has to result in millions of dollars as well, and that’s not something that he’ll let you forget while listening. After releasing his debut mixtape Kutt Dat Boy last year to critical acclaim, he is back like he never left with his video single “Different”, and I couldn’t be more eager to share it with you all. The beat was produced by Yakree and Nile Waves who include some inebriating 808s and eardrum-tickling …

Certified Diamond Hit-Maker Tank God Releases “Owe U Sum” ft Tyla Yaweh

2x Grammy-nominated producer Tank God, is transitioning from producer to artist with his new single “Owe U Sum”. The 23-year-old hitmaker is best known for the 8x platinum Post Malone’s smash hit “Rockstar” featuring 21 Savage. Since then, Tank has signed a publishing deal with Sony/ATV and released his independent self-titled project in July 2017. He also went on to produce records for A$AP Rocky, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Chris Brown, Lil Tjay, and Chris Brown. Originally set to release last year, “Owe U Sum” was created during Tank’s birthday celebration. When the unreleased record was played, Rap’s boldest rockstar, Tyla Yaweh, immediately fell in love with the record. “I made Owe U Sum last year on my birthday. I went to Tyla’s house to chill and played him the record. He instantly loved it and immediately wanted to hop on the song,” he explained. “He had a studio set up at his house and I recently learned how to engineer, so I recorded his verse right there on spot! We shot the video a couple of weeks later. I’ve been dealing with transitioning from being a producer to an artist and I finally felt like it was time …

Ben 10 – [Yung Sinner]

Yung Sinner is the hottest new artist rising from Atlanta this month ever since being profiled in Miko Worldwide’s vlog where he gave viewers a tour of Atlanta suburb Stone Mountain revealing the massive underworld that has developed in the once quiet community, which has been completely fueled by the gentrification of Atlanta’s internal neighborhoods which have eliminated affordable housing and brought old neighborhood tensions to new environments which subsequently went downhill. This is the case of many areas that combine to become Atlanta’s “East Side” of the metropolitan area. Sinner comes from the newly notorious Central Drive area where his name already rings out and has gotten to the point where he has now been fully co-signed by 21 Savage. His visual for “Ben10” is clear evidence of his talent and appeal but I look forward to hearing even more from him and hope he can stay consistent and be one of the next largest artists to hail from the Atlanta area.

Too real – [King Von]

I know I have been writing a ton about the late King Von as of late, and I also recognize that I typically mention how he was taken from this Earth way too soon and his potential was snatched before we could even see what kind of massive shoes he was going to be able to fill, even more so than he already proved. While I always believe these things and will forever know they’re true, I don’t want to mourn any longer because he left such a legacy behind that needs to be celebrated, and not questioned in ambiguity. This past Friday, Von’s estate dropped his album What it Means to be King, a 19-song album that I have been bumping all weekend long, and I don’t see that stopping anytime soon. While every single verse that Von delivers proves why he was a diamond in the rough in the music industry, there were tons of other legendary emcees who joined in to spit a verse or two including G Herbo, 21 Savage, Lil Durk, Fivio Foreign, OMB Peezy, Tee Grizzley, and many others, each of whom definitely make a splash on an already impactful project. I personally feel …

Don’t Play That – [King Von] ft. [21 Savage]

Growing up in Chicago is a life-changing and magnificent thing, but it does have so many hardships for certain individuals as well. I’m from the suburbs so I had the luxury of visiting the city and all of its glory from time to time, but I was sheltered from some of the more brutal things that come along with it. For others, especially world-renown artists who made a living off of their experience being raised by the streets, it can be looked at as a much different place than I am used to being around. Icons like Lil Durk, G Herbo, Chief Keef, and others have been able to use these events to bring light to the ruthlessness that the trenches have displayed throughout their formative years, and this has come with so many losses that it is jaw-dropping and tear-jerking. King Von was someone who the city will never stop mourning because he was one of the greatest storytellers that I have ever witnessed in the rap industry, and even though he isn’t around to see his legacy continue on, his family, friends, and fanbase are not going to forget the mark he made on this world whatsoever. Although …

Kill Streak 2 (Deluxe) – [Tony Shhnow]

One thing I never realized when getting into the music scene was all the different tiers that exist in all of the different cities. Specifically for Atlanta, there are obviously a few more levels than most other places considering it features the upper echelon of artists who never fail to do numbers no matter what they release. Obviously, world-renown emcees including Future, Young Thug, Lil Yachty, 21 Savage, and too many more to name call this city home, but the talent pool runs much deeper than there. Going down tiers also doesn’t mean that the music gets worse, to be totally clear, it just means these talents appeal to a bit more of a niche crowd that is only going to continue to grow as the years go on. Other names like Lil Gnar, Yun Bans, Thouxanbanfauni, BKTHERULA, are putting on for their city in a different way, bringing innovative styles to the forefront of the historied town and proving that even if you’re not quite doing as many numbers as the Migos, your creativity is leaps and bounds away from some of the talents who came before you. In this group, Tony Shhnow is definitely someone to keep an …

Surround Sound – [J.I.D] ft. [21 Savage] & [Baby Tate]

One thing that I think is often forgotten is the fact that for the most part, the music industry is a community. I feel like there was a time with so much beef and artists going at each other’s throats that it seemed more of a battlefield than an inclusive group, but I feel like the current landscape of music is one that is accepting, collaborative, and supportive, which is an exciting thing to think about. While artists from all over the world collaborate with one another, I personally just feel like it hits different when musicians from the same state or city come together on a record, so when Atlanta’s very own J.I.D decided to recruit fellow ATLiens 21 Savage and Baby Tate to join him on his latest single “Surround Sound” in order to prepare fans for his upcoming album The Forever Story, I was beyond pumped. Not only this, but he even got hitmakers like DJ Scheme and Christo to create the instrumental, so it was a track that was set up for success before it even dropped. In the production, we are blessed with a soulful vocal sample that is bombarded by piercing percussion and thunderous …

Rain – [Tommy Ice] ft. [Annamarie]

Atlanta is obviously a music city that needs absolutely no introduction, but it goes so much further and deeper than just the surface. While names like Future, Young Thug, Gucci Mane, 21 Savage, and countless other massive artists are lucky enough to call this city home, there are definitely so many other artists that are making remarkable music, even if these aforementioned names might get all of the mainstream attention. Nonetheless, I want to bring these underground icons the credit that they rightfully deserve, and my list begins with Tommy Ice. Tommy is someone who I have been listening to for years, watching him come into his own as a producer, rapper, and all-around creative, and at this point, I feel like I’m lucky enough to even consider him a friend, even if it’s just through the internet at this point. He never fails to impress me, and he definitely continued to do so on his latest SoundCloud released song “Rain”, featuring Annamarie. Produced by Tommy himself as well as Guala, this one features lighthearted ukulele-sounding strings that clash with pungent 808s and crisp percussion that give a slightly trap-like sound to an otherwise serene foundation. Annamarie, who I wasn’t …
