The New New: 15 Atlanta Rappers You Should Know


Tez McClain
Hometown: Southside of Atlanta
Twitter: @TezMcclain
Notable song: “Art vs. Hustle”
Sounds like: Not many new A-town rappers. A mix of Big K.R.I.T. and T.I.
Why you need to know him: The Clarke Atlanta University graduate has been toiling in the underground for a few years and is just now starting to get his mainstream props. His video for the single “Flick‘n,” off his recent mixtape Scoundrel, recently appeared on “106 and Park.” More lyrical than the average A-town MC, Tez combines food-for-thought grind music with a sprinkle of flash and swagger, which allows him to make a gamut of different records.
