The New New: 15 Atlanta Rappers You Should Know


Hometown: Atlanta via Brooklyn
Twitter: @WaraFromTheNBHD
Notable song: “Thieves Theme”
Sounds like: A New York rap-inspired rhymer who grew up rapping listening to jazz and rapping over Flying Lotus beats.
Why you need to know him: He’s a deep thinker and big dreamer, and sounds like a Queens version (he’s outspoken about his love for the 90’s NYC rap scene) of an Atlanta rapper. Lyrically he comes across as both book and street smart and has the direct cadence of a great live performer. Also, the cover of his Ill Street Blues LP is as interesting as the songs on it.
