The Come Up: Scotty ATL


On Being Influenced By OutKast:

Scotty ATL: “My mom used to listen to 2Pac, so rap was always around me. But I was listening to back then it was like Lil Wayne. There was one where like Lil Wayne was like, “I run over niggas like eighteen wheelers.” It’s like his first CD. So like at that point that was like what was the shit to us cause he was a little dude, so that was what I was listening to then it kinda went to Outkast and Da Brat and T.I, and all of that.

“The most that influenced me was Outkast. Just because when they came with that style to the A-Town, it was different from everything that people had heard, I mean at the time. And then when you saw the video I think that the Da Brat Funkdafied and Southernplayalistic dropped like right around the same time and when you saw that video for Southernplayalistic.”
