Southwest Atlanta rapper and 4 Pockets Full general Lil Baby is one of the new rappers coming out the South that you should pay attention to. The young upstart links with DJ Drama to drop his newest mixtape, Harder Than Hard, and a standout off the project is "Pink Slip,” which features Young Thug, his childhood friend. The autotune-heavy track is produced by Bricks Da Mane and the two artists make a great duo.

Harder Than Hard features 4PF DT on production along with Quay Global, D-Billy and more. This is Lil Baby's second mixtape of the year. He previously released Perfect Timing in April. That 12-track tape also featured Young Thug plus Lil Yachty, Young Scooter and Gunna, while production was handled by 808 Mafia, Wheezy, OG Parker and Earl The Pearl, among others. Lil Baby is also being currently managed by Coach K and Pee, the CEOs of Quality Control, home to Migos and Lil Boat.

Lil Baby was in prison less than a year ago, but since he's been out, he's been all in for his quest to be the next star out of Atlanta.
