The New New: 15 Atlanta Rappers You Should Know
Notable songs: “Scottie 2 Hottie” and “Stayin True”
Sounds like: Honestly – a lot of things. The crew is more a collective than a band, comprised of a lot of different personalities. From the West Coast-influenced FatKidsBrotha to eclectic weirdos Retro Su$h!, there’s a lot going on here.
Why you need to know them: These guys are young, energetic, and represent an interesting, at-times dark and at-times soulful side of Atlanta that the world’s never seen. You could say they’re inspired by the mob mentality of Raider Klan and the A$AP crew, but they’ve got their own style, swag, fan base and more than one style of music to back up all the hype. Also surprising – they’re all good, rather than just one talented leader riding around with his tag-alongs.
