The New New: 15 Atlanta Rappers You Should Know
Notable songs: “No Sticks, No Seeds” and “All the #03$”
Sounds like: A cross between a young Big Boi, a swagged-out Big K.R.I.T., and a more contemplative Slim Thug.
Why you need to know him: He’s really, really versatile. He’s just as adept at rapping over a guitar rock-inspired beat like the one on “No Sticks, No Seeds” as he is on an Organized Noize-sounding slow banger like “My Grandaddy Car.” You get the feeling that he could do anything without sounding forced or awkward, and that’s a great asset to have for a potential crossover artist.
