Free Agent 3
Southside has built his brand on reliably banging production for such ATL stalwarts Waka Flocka ("Fuck The Club Up"), Future ("Fuck Up Some Commas"), & Young Thug ("Danny Glover.") He has a rapping alter ego, Young Sizzle, and Sizzle has been teasing his Free Agent 3 mixtape with a slew of loose releases over the course of the last couple months. At last, the tape has arrived.
Ex Drug Dealer 2
Casino is intent on proving himself as one of Future's most reliable soldiers at Freebandz, and the Atlanta trapper has made a strong statement on his new mixtape, Ex Drug Dealer 2, the sequel to the original Ex Drug Dealer, the DJ Esco-hosted tape he put out in early 2013. For EDD2, Casino grabbed his label boss for two tracks ("Whitney Houston" and "Say That"), and his labelmate Young Scooter for two more. Additional features come from Young Thug, Young Dolph, and more.
BeatKing & Nephew Texas Boy
Just over a month after dropping 3 Weeks, his first official project on Sony RED, Houston Club God BeatKing is back with a joint mixtape with Nephew Texas Boy, Texlanta. The new tape brings together the sounds of two cities that have been influencing each other for many years, perhaps never more so than today.
Finally Rollin 2
Chief Keef doesn't always deliver on his promises, but he didn't disappoint tonight, as he's come through with his new mixtape, Finally Rollin 2. The tape finds Sosa rapping over classic old-school (if you're Keef's age) southern bangers, a handful of which dropped last week, including remixes of Weezy's "Stuntin' Like My Daddy" (or in Keef's case, "My Mama") as well as '00s classics from both GuWop and Jeezy.
Slime Season 2
Thug promised two projects tonight: Migos Thuggin and Slime Season 2, the follow-up to his eclectic 18-track effort from September that featured several collaborations with his go-to producer London on da Track -- as well as beats from Metro Boomin, Southside, Wheezy, Goose, and more of Atlanta's leading youngsters. No sign of Migos Thuggin just yet, but SS2 is here, and it's about all we can handle.
Lil Donald aka Lil Don Loyal got his name out earlier this year with his breakout hit, "Juice." He's since linked up with the Freebandz gang, which is run, of course, by Mr. Future Hendrix. He's now released a new mixtape via Freebandz, Freeband Loyal, which, for a debut tape, features an huge lineup of features and producers.
Stackin N Mackin Vol. 3
Chicago duo White Gzus (comprised of Blanco Caine and Gzus Piece) have been hitting us with great tracks all year, and today, it all culminates with the third installment of their Stackin N Mackin mixtape series.
Earlier this month, we were introduced to Chicago's Zona Man via his track "Mean To Me," which had him linking up with a hometown hero (Lil Durk) and his unlikely new label boss (Future) over a beat from longtime Chicago drill revolutionary C-Sick. Today, the Freebandz artist shares a new tape called No Advance.
Ever since he started showing up on songs with Young Thug last year, MPA affiliate Bricc Baby Shitro has been poised for a breakout. His status has since improved with a Kid Ink co-sign and the bubbling underground hit "6 Drugs," and now he gives people a full body of work to digest. Nasty Dealer is chock full of big guests and producers, and it's got amazing artwork to boot.
19 & Boomin
Download 19 & Boomin, the latest project from Metro Boomin, released on Monday, October 7th, 2013. Metro Boomin's chances in this game are improving with each new release, and 19 & Boomin is no exception - quite the opposite, in fact. It's a nice addition to the impressive catalogue Metro Boomin has been building over the years. We're definitely anticipating the next move.
