The Break Presents: Scotty

Standout: “Husslin’”

Also Check Out: “Sept. 23″

And: “No Stick, No Seeds”

Name: Scotty

Age: 27

Reppin: Atlanta, GA

I’ve Been rapping since: I was in the 7th Grade

My style and/or skills have been compared to: Some of your favorite southern rap artists… Outkast, Goodie Mob, T.I.

My standout records and/or moments have been: “Husslin” (Produced by DJ Burn One) has been one of my biggest records up to this point. It’s the song that everybody at the shows knows, raps the words to and gets crazy on. I think it’s because the song is relatable, its not a song bragging about what I got; but its about husslin to get what you want, not to mention the beat is dope.

I’m gonna change the game by: Making music that people can relate to and say “man that just happened to me the other day.” I’m not trying to be a cool rapper, I’m already cool and I just happen to rap. The music that I make is one of the best representations of the South, and what people in the South are about.

I’d Like to Work With: Big K.R.I.T., J.Cole, Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar and Curren$y and a few other upcoming artists. I support the new cats. But from the artists that I grew up on I’d like to work with Outkast, Big Rube, Kanye West, Nas, and maybe a couple of other artists.

My goal in hip-hop is: Make dope music that lives on forever, and inspire people all over the world.

I’m gonna be the next: Biggest thing out of the South that’s making that real timeless music.

    Thomas has to be the most confusing writer i’ve seen. ALl of those dashes before he completes a sentence made my eyes hurt. Love the group and individuals, but I don’t think I can read this article if the writing is like this. I have no idea what I got out of reading that. I’m not saying he’s horrible, but he was writing-it’s crazy. SEE that right there is damn senseless!

    These dudes got me excited about hip-hop again, been bumpin Soul and Q’s discog’s for the past month every single night (I work the graveyard shift) and still haven’s got tired of it , all their new work is getting praise but for anybody that hasn’t checked out their older stuff, go to datpiff, they got the whole collection, Soul’s Long Term 1 and 2 and Longterm Mentality are all dope from start to finish, same with Q’s Schoolboy Turned Hustla & Gangsta and Soul. Check all of them out and thank me later.
