Ride Out – [Shoreline Mafia] ft. [Lil Yachty]

Shoreline Mafia is one of my absolute favorite groups out right now, and I know I’m not alone. I’ve been listening to them for years at this point, and their unapologetic attitudes mixed with some out of the box West Coast fueled beats along with innovative cadences and other unique experiments that always seem to work have constantly kept me coming back for more. They have such a unique way of being able to introduce certain gangster Rap themes into party anthems that are sure to turn any function up, and each member has an individualistic sound and persona that just contributes so much to the overall group. While they’ve obviously been exploding in the underground in recent memory, Lil Yachty has always kept his ear to the streets and hasn’t been one to shy away from praising or working with promising up and comers. It’s weird to even consider Shoreline up and comers anymore because of all their success, but I still think they could be considered this due to the fact that they don’t get nearly enough recognition or props for all of the success they’ve had in such a relatively short period of time. They’re not slowing …

Split/Whole Team – [Lil Yachty]

I remember way back a few years ago when Lil Yachty was starting to blow up and I hopped on the wave early because I saw his star potential. It was pretty easy to predict so I’m not saying I noticed anything that other people didn’t, but with the amount of hate he was receiving that contrasted the praise he was also getting made me question how far he could actually go in his career. Lil Boat, the original edition of the series, was one of my favorite mixtapes at the time and I still return to it occasionally. This project, although it was fun and unlike anything that was out in Hip-Hop at the time, didn’t really showcase Boat’s wide variety of skills that he is known to possess now. Since then, he has released a few albums and other mixtapes, putting his talents on full display and showing the music world that he’s not just some young kid with red braids and minimal musical aptitudes. After announcing the upcoming, highly anticipated release of the Lil Boat series’ third edition, Yachty decided to release a new song and video entitled “Split/Whole Time”. This double-sided song begins with a beat …

Yeah Yeah – [Lil Gotit] ft. [Future] & [Lil Keed]

With so much great music coming out in recent months, Lil Gotit’s Hood Baby 2 can’t be forgotten. He put so much time and effort into promoting this project that it surely can’t fly under any Rap fan’s radar. Boasting features from household names like Future, Gunna, Lil Yachty, and Lil Keed, he also included rising stars like Guap Tarantino, B Slime, and more. Seeing different names and levels of success come together on an album like this gets me so excited for the future because none of these up and comers get overshadowed in the slightest, and they fit right in alongside some of the biggest artists in the game right now. A standout track off the project has to be “Yeah Yeah” which features Atlanta staple Future as well as Gotit’s older brother Lil Keed. Although this song came out prior to the entire album, it has a new context as it’s surrounded by all-new hits, and it even received a video treatment. A dark foundation is laid through strong guitar notes, intense percussion, and always hard-hitting bass. Future takes over the chorus considering he has mastered this portion of Rap songs at this point in his career, …

Tokyo Nights – [TM88] feat. [MadeInTYO]

No matter who gets brought up into the conversation, it would be insane to not mention TM88 when it comes to producers that have been running the game for years now. The 808 Mafia mega producer has been known for producing some of the biggest hits we have known. TM88 has produced for Travis Scott, Gucci Mane, Lil Yachty and many more. Most recently producing on the critically-acclaimed album Eternal Atake on the song “P2”, TM88 has been shooting from beyond the free throw line and has been putting up major numbers on the board. Today, he’s back with yet another hit with the release of his latest single “Tokyo Nights”, which coincidentally enough, features the Atlanta-native MadeInTYO. The production style of TM88 has always been as unique as can be, as he is a part of the production group that can be crowned as the forefather of the current climate of trap music today. As time progressed, so did TM88 and he continues to evolve with the sound. On “Tokyo Nights”, TM88 unleashes soft and mesmerizing backing instrumentation that sounds like it came straight from the future. The beat is ever so fitting to that vibe of roaming the brightly-lit …

Hot Ham- [K $upreme] ft. [Lil Yachty] & [Chief Keef]

After the sailing team seemed to split up and go in their own separate directions, I hadn’t heard too much from K $upreme. Not that I was ignoring him because I definitely knew how talented he was, I just unknowingly paid more attention to Lil Yachty since he was undoubtedly the star of the collective. I’m happy to say that after listening to K $upreme’s latest song “Hot Ham” featuring Lil Boat and Chief Keef, he hasn’t lost his energy or talent in the slightest. Chasethemoney was recruited by K to bring the heat for the wild production on this song which is comprised of crashing cymbals, tiptoeing synths, and skittish snares. Yachty goes in for the first verse almost immediately, showing off his calmer, more subdued charisma that he uses when he spits on slightly harder-hitting beats like this. He boasts an underrated flow as he mentions his riches, providing luxurious goods for his friends, and the fact that his crew has his back through everything. Although this song goes really hard, I could have done without the hook in all honesty. It just didn’t flow with the verses extremely well and it seemed as if it was thrown …

Rain – [Lil Yachty]

Seeing the transformation that Lil Yachty has made ever since coming onto the scene has been nothing short of incredible. He went from being one of the more controversial rappers, not because of his lyrical content but because of his somewhat simple and elementary sound, to one of the biggest artists on the planet. The entire way, he has figured out ways to capitalize on money-making opportunities from collaborations with brands like Target and Sprite because of his appeal to younger crowds but also proved that he’s not someone to mess with through hard-hitting verses and fantastic guest spots. Although he might be one of the more uncharacteristic talents in Atlanta, he draws influences in certain parts of his music that are telltale of the southern city. His style is dynamic, and his range of sounds allows him to fit in on almost any song, whether it’s a happy-go-lucky track or an aggressive banger. Considering I still believe that his Lil Boat series are some of his best complete offerings to date, his latest single “Rain” brings me back to some simpler times when he was still making a name for himself in the industry prior to being the superstar …

OOPS – [Larry League]

Out of all the music being released in Atlanta, one of the best groups that deserve way more recognition than they receive is undoubtedly Larry League. The trio made up of SenseiATL, Larry, and Randy make hits nonstop and have been doing so for years. Although they have the backing of their city as well as friendships with some of the biggest artists in the A, they seem to stay lowkey and don’t mind the underground label that they’ll seem to inevitably possess. Their sound is unlike anything coming out of the notorious city, and each member of the group brings a different skill to the table in order to build songs unlike any other artist in Atlanta. Although “OOPS” dropped all the way back in 2016, the crew has had a visual locked away in the vault for some time now and it finally got the chance to see the light of day. As a refresher, the production is built with elevating synths, an uplifting melody, and uncharacteristic percussive elements. Larry takes care of the hook, killing a melodic flow full of robotic autotune with honestly less impressive lyricism than normal, but that comes later in the track so …

Watch Lil Yachty’s new interview on BigBoyTV

Lil Yachty first blew up a few years back when he was still just a teenager and since that point he has grown into one of the brightest young talents in the music community, so when I saw that he linked up with one of the greatest interviews, Big Boy, I couldn’t wait to tune in! Big + his crew asked Lil Yachty about plenty of things including the song “Oprah’s Bank Account” and how he came up with the creative music video, working with Drake + DaBaby, social media, the situation he had with a jeweler, his new music, artists he wants to work with, giving great birthday gifts, whats on his rider, how he ironically hates boats, his thoughts on different types of pizza and he even bet big boy $1,000! Take a few minutes of your time to watch this brand new interview below.

Addy Talk- [Lil Gotit]

If you know me or follow along to any of my posts, it’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Lil Gotit. His energy, charisma, and one of a kind sound all play a part in his music, making it better and better every time I hear it. At the very end of February, Gotit released Superstar Creature, a project that packed a punch and helped him cement his spot in the music industry while still on the come up. The Atlanta spitter also recently collaborated with the A-Team, a supergroup comprised of his brother Lil Keed as well as Lil Yachty and Zaytoven, which is yet another move that is going to diversify his career and take him to new levels. Although he’s constantly making moves throughout his young career, an interesting one was just made with his latest music video release. Rather than dropping a visual to piggyback on his most recent project that’s not even a month old, or even his sophomore effort Cozy but Its True, he decided to revisit his breakout project The Real GOAT, dropping a video for his hit song “Addy Talk”. This track features a melodic loop behind traditional Atlanta trap-inspired …

Oprah’s Bank Account – [Lil Yachty] feat. [Drake] & [DaBaby]

When speaking of rap crews or labels that have been running the game recently, it would be blasphemy to not mention those of the likes of Quality Control. Being the mecca behind the ascension of major rap careers of Migos, Lil Baby, City Girls & more, they are shooting from the half-court line and aren’t missing at all. As far as Lil Yachty goes, he is one of the earliest acts that QC, and has managed to remain relevant ever since then. Today, he debuted a new smash single and video titled “Oprah’s Bank Account” featuring features from Drake and DaBaby. Yachty has always been one to go above and beyond not only with his album rollouts, but his visuals as well. We know Yachty to be such a character, so it was only right for him to showcase more of that in this video. Dressing up as Oprah, Yachty is seen hosting his own daytime television show called “The Bophrah Show”. During the video, we get to see a completely different side of Yachty as he begins to show off more of his witty and charismatic side of him—alongside showing for of his acting capabilities. The single produced by …
