[EDM/Rap:] Flux Pavilion – Stain (feat. Two-9)

Atlanta Rap Collective group Two-9 has teamed up with one of the biggest DJs in the game (and major headliner of this weekend’s Imagine Music Festival), Flux Pavilion. The result is an eardrum destroying massive track that is guaranteed to do nothing except blow up in popularity.

Congratulations to the Two-9 family of artists, local Atlantans making big moves!

[Hip/Hop-Rap] Rockstar (feat. 21 Savage) by Post Malone

Check out this advance leak from Post Malone’s upcoming album “Rockstar” featuring 21 Savage. The song leaked on to YouTube a few days ago and has been constantly re-uploaded and taken down.

Some say it was accidentally leaked, others say it was teased, more still claim Malone tried to release it but encountered backlash. Either way the official is now up on Malone’s SoundCloud. Check it out above!

Key! – Yukon (feat. Omari Shakir) [Prod. Su$h Ceej & Moe Hundreds)

I can’t help myself I’m in love with your hoe,
Can’t help myself I’m in love with your hoe
I don’t want no heart I just wanna throat
I ran in the money, I’m lettin’ it go
In love with the money #relationshipgoals

Coming from Atlanta hip-hop producer and rapper Key! is “Yukon,” featuring Omari Shakir. With a catchy hook, and solid beat (produced by Ceej of ATL’s Two-9 collective) and Moe Hundreds, the collaboration with the Outta Pocket Boyz “Yukon” bangs, and just has an overall, different feel that is quite refreshing to hear in today’s rap game.

Omari Shakir brings some Future-like flair to the track singing undeniably addicting croons that have that lazy Sunday, street feel that makes this a perfectly great rap track; one that isn’t necessarily trying to be some tough, gangster number. Instead the song both goes hard and doesn’t take itself too too seriously, it’s simply fun. Key! and Su$h Ceej plan to release an album titled FRVR on February 9th, 2017. You can check out more on their Soundcloud pages.

[New Atlanta Hip-Hop/Rap:] Sahbabii – Pull Up Wit Ah Stick (feat. Loso)


Atlanta Rap

Pull Up Wit Ah Stick (feat. Loso Loaded) – Sahbabii

Pull up wit ah stick, let it hit
Pull up wit ah stick, let it hit

Bitch I’m with the mob, you can’t get in
we commit a sin for our niggas in the bin

After hearing this song playing at a local hookah bar in Buckhead, Atlanta after work one night I had to download it. Shoutout the DJ at Sahara Lounge that was playing this a few nights ago! “Pull Up Wit Ah Stick” is a trap banger full of Atlanta swag and “Datway!!” mentality. For those not in the ATL, that means it bangs and is totally a song you should blast in the whip with the windows down (especially on warm days here in the South).

Featuring Loso Loaded this rather underground track from Sahbabii is almost guaranteed to blow up once more people hear it. Oh yes, I would be remiss if I also failed to mention I have heard Atlanta’s Streetz 94.5 (my FM station of choice) playing this late at night. Here’s to a whole new movement of Atlanta rap, one that will hopefully take our city Dat way!! as we prepare to face the New England Patriots in the upcoming Super Bowl! (RISE UP FALCONS)

[Hip-Hop/Rap] [Atlanta Rap:] 2 Chainz – Good Drank (feat. Gucci Mane & Quavo)


[Atlanta Hip-Hop/Rap:]
Good Drank (feat. Gucci Mane & Quavo of the Migos) – 2 Chainz


2 Chainz smash-hit song, “Good Drank” gets a music video. Opting for a more “old-school” vintage look the song successfully combines elements of the past with the style and flair inherent in 2016-2017 rap. The song itself has been tearing up charts and radio waves across the country, especially in Atlanta.

Featuring none-other-than Gucci 1017 & Quavo of the Migos the track unfolds over a soothing, catchy piano chord and trap snares. Only these three Atlanta rappers could create something with this much uniqueness, and still keep it “street,” with elements of a slow jam, lyrics characteristic of a party rap song and flows smooth as ice. Can’t forget Quavo’s incredible chorus either.

That’s why I never trust niggas man, motherfuck a friend!

Popping up on my Soundcloud feed today, a very nice chill rap track coming to us from Rack Jenkins. “Dead Frenemies” tells the story of a rapper’s journey to fame, coming up in the city and the cautionary tales of dealing with frenemies (friends who are actually f*ckbois in disguise).

From the laidback vocals, to the Asian sounding chords plucked in the background the song sets a very calm, relaxing tone. The beat itself, greatly reminds me of something Nujabes (the mastermind behind Samurai Champloo‘s soundtrack) or Dilla would produce.

In other words, some real hip-hop for ya listenin’ ears.

B.L.A.C.K. Baron – Mayretta (feat. Scotty ATL) // [BONUS] Scotty ATL – Marry Me

See I’m straight out the North,
Yeah, I come from the ‘May
A.K.A. Amsterdam, everybody got grams
All our trunks be on wham, pretty bitches goddamn!
Yeah they know who I am, I’m the one with the plan

Two Atlanta rappers come together to rep the North and East sides in “Mayretta” (one local pronunciation of Marietta, Georgia). With a steady, trap beat, catchy hooks and lyrics the song does not only Atlanta, but Marietta proud. B.L.A.C.K. Baron Scotty ATL have an interesting synergy in this track produced by Larkinbeats. Good to see some quality ATL rap that sounds nothing like Young Thug, Lil’ Yachty, or even 21 Savage. Like they say, you eat the same thing everyday you’ll get tired of it real quick.

[Hip-Hop/Rap] Migos – Bad & Boujee (feat. Lil’ Uzi Vert) // [Hip-Hop/Rap] Meek Mill – Froze (feat. Lil’ Uzi Vert & Nicki Minaj)


Bad & Boujee (feat. Lil’ Uzi Vert) – Migos

The Migos have done it again, and with the help of Lil’ Uzi Vert not a moment too soon. Just in time for the colder months comes a rather cold rap number in “Bad & Boujee.” With a smooth relaxed beat the song is perfect for chilling out or lowkey turning up. The single is making rounds across the country and the world.


Froze (feat. Lil’ Uzi Vert & Nicki Minaj) – Meek Mill

Look at my neck, ay, damn you know how froze that is?!
Look at my wrist, unh, yeah you know how froze that is?!

For something a little more high energy we’ve got Meek Mill’s “Froze” proving that Meek is not forever taking L’s. I, for one, thoroughly enjoy the street hustle grind sound mashed with Black rockstar rap vibes (see “Black Beatles”). With help from Lil’ Uzi Vert and Nicki Minaj, Meek cranks out a rap banger that is sure to have people dancing, hitting the quan, and making other dance videos to the songs outrageously addictive chorus.
