Turned 2 Da Boss – [Yung Bans]

Yung Bans has been a bit of an underground staple for quite some time now. With that being said, he’s finally starting to break through that barrier in order to receive much more recognition for his unique and incredible music. Connections with some of the biggest artists in Atlanta have helped guide him in the right directions and these decisions have proven to be invaluable at the end of the day. His sound is unlike anything else you hear coming out of the Georgia capital and it actually skews away from anything you’d generally hear in Rap music period. His flow and demeanor are relaxed and always calm, his words are mashed together at times in the best possible way, and his stories are very real, giving fans insights into his mind, no matter how disheartening or depressing they might be at times. Music is his way of venting and getting these things out onto the table, and Bans does so in a way that is unlike anyone else in music today. His messages don’t always include dismal topics, however, and they can offer a wide array of emotions. Take his most recent single “Turned 2 Da Boss” for example, …

I JU$$ – [Yung Bans]

After diving deep into the Atlanta underground the past few years, I’ve been able to find some incredible talents that have truly blown me away. I didn’t have to dive too deep in order to find Yung Bans, because he’s been popping off in unimaginable ways. His laid-back persona and catchy flows have turned him into an artist who I haven’t been able to forget about, and I’m not complaining about that in the slightest. Last year’s project Misunderstood was one of my absolute favorite offerings of the entire year, and it’s still something I revisit quite frequently. His unique style is abundant and stands out on every single track, despite the fact that he recruited some of the biggest names in music such as Future, Young Thug, Lil Durk, and YNW Melly, among others. With artists as notorious as this, it’s easy to get overshadowed even on your own album, but Bans’ voice shines through and sticks out from the crowd. Bans is also known for his abundance of music, putting out hit after hit every time you blink, so when I saw that he dropped a new song called “I JU$$”, I knew I was in for a …

SANTANA – [Slim Santana]

Melodically inclined Atlanta rapper Slim Santana returned recently with a new eight-track project titled “SANTANA” which gave us another look at the Yung Bans and YNW Melly collaborator who is looking to cement himself in both the fast-paced Atlanta scene, but as well as more of a presence from the masses of rap listeners on the internet. Santana is quite naturally gifted and has a unique voice and flow and on this latest project, he seems to have found his voice more and is beginning to carve out his own personal style. The project features Oz Sparx, Ola Runt, and Yung Bans and these could not have been more perfect selections for SANTANA’s guest verses. As usual Slim’s beat selection was always in pocket and never dull and I have to say that the Oz Sparx featuring track “Like I’m Durk” is my favorite track out of the eight. Keep an eye on Slim Santana for the rest of 2020 and I am personally very excited to see what he unloads next.

Partna In Crime – [Yung Bans]

Yung Bans is a young legend who has risen to stardom over the past few years, and tonight he is returning to our platform with his brand new music video for “Partna In Crime”. The chemistry that Yung Bans has had with Lyrical Lemonade’s own Cole Bennett over the years has been nothing short of spectacular, they have collaborated on a handful of visuals in the past so you just had a feeling it wouldn’t be long before they connected again, and this time around they really showed out. One aspect within his craft that Yung Bans truly excels at is making ear-pleasing melodies, and this tune is right up there with the best that he has ever made, so it only made sense that Cole matched that with one of his hardest videos yet! Watch this brand new visual below and if you like what you see then make sure you subscribe to our YouTube & follow Yung Bans here.

Dark Angel – [Slim Santana]

Slim Santana is a creative out of Atlanta who has been turning a lot of heads thus far into 2019, and not too long ago he unleashed his new full-length project titled “Dark Angel.” Slim Santana first caught my attention earlier this year when he and LL favorite Yung Bans released a music video for one of their tracks, they displayed great chemistry on the song + I quickly became a fan of Slim Santana, so going into this new tape I had big expectations. After running through these eight tracks that were provided I was pleased with the outcome, Slim Santana has a ton of potential and I don’t picture it being too long before he is one of the hottest new artists coming out. Stream this brand new project via Soundcloud below and if you enjoy what you hear, then don’t forget to follow him here!

Prada Zombie – [Yung Bans]

Yung Bans has became one of the most well respected new artists in the game over the past couple of years, and tonight the Atlanta superstar is back with the release of his brand new music video for “Prada Zombie”. I have been a fan of Yung Bans for a minute now but when I pressed play on this new joint I just thought to myself ‘he’s on another level’, it seemed like he’s continuing to improve with each & every release, and I would consider this one of his best songs to date. The future is bright for the ATL emcee, if you aren’t yet in tune with his movement I suggest you give this new visual a spin below!

Behind the Music: Highlighting the Producers of Today’s Sound

By: Lee Mcintosh When it comes to creating great music, the artists are the ones who receive most of the recognition for the creation of the song. Their name is what’s attached to the song, their flows, their likeness, and even the features that the artist may have. However, the song making process all begins with one entity… the producer/s. No matter how creative the lyrics may be, how great the artist’s cadence sounds, the beat behind it all is a huge factor behind the overall appeal of the song, and that is what moves people and captures their attention as soon as they hit play. We are in a different era of music now. Technology has advanced to a point where producers and artists don’t have to be in the studio together anymore. This can be a gift and a curse at the same time. Often so, producers may send over a beat pack to an artist and then they select the songs they want and don’t want. From there, the studio session may be recorded or put on Instagram live, and the producer may be nowhere in sight. This may create confusion as to who actually made the …

CLASS CLOWN – [Luke Almighty]

It’s become nearly impossible to follow Chicago’s rising hip-hop scene without encountering a beat or two from producer Luke Almighty. Over the past few years, he has proven his knack for putting on new talent and boasts a roster of big voices both from the city and all over (Supa Bwe, Yung Bans, that continues to grow. Now, Almighty calls upon that roster for his own project. With features from many of his longtime collaborators and an appearance from Chicago legend Twista, ‘Class Clown’ gives the most cohesive look at the producer’s talent yet. Almighty put his name in the spotlight last summer with the release of his debut mixtape ‘Deliver Us From Evil’, and while that project offered a deep-dive into a sound he was already known for, ‘Class Clown’ expands upon his skills. Almighty proves he’s still in his bag when balancing hard 808s influenced by Chicago drill production and ambient synths on tracks like “Believe That”; Rappers KOMLA, KILLKAIN, and SANTIAGO trade verses on this song over rolling hi-hats and an eerie melody. While honing this sound, Almighty also experiments with more melodic elements and sampling, with songs like “Brand New” offering an upbeat change of …

Yung Bans is fresh off of the release of his brand new project and while he was recently in New York on his press run he stopped by Hot 97 for a great conversation with Hip-Hop Mike and my brother Lil Jake even answered a few questions.
