These Atlanta producers continue to take over the game. First they had to struggle just to get credited on mixtape tracks; now they're dropping the best tapes their city has to offer. The latest ATL don to release a full project is Cassius Jay, a protégé of Zaytoven's and a close collaborator of Peewee Longway, Migos, the late Bankroll Fresh, and many more top trappers.
1 AM In Dallas
Spiffy Global is a producer who's been popping up a lot recently on some of the hottest tapes in Atlanta. He's now come out with a tape of his own, 1 AM in Dallas, on which he rounds up some of his best work. Dallas is a place where Spiffy likes to conduct business out of, and 1 AM is around the time when his studio vibe is at its peak, so the tape should transport listeners into the headspace of the exciting young producer.
Swag The Mixtape
Soulja Boy recently dropped his single "Cake," in which he blatantly co-opts Young Thug's flow. On Friday he dropped Swag The Mixtape, where "Cake" is featured alongside 24 (!) other tracks.
The Dark Night
After releasing Blatlanta 3: Respect in February, Trap-A-Holics own Bloody Jay is back with a new mixtape, The Dark Night. After coming on our radars with Black Portland, last summer's joint tape with Young Thug, Bloody Jay continues to prove himself as a solo artist. The new tape includes 10 brand new original tracks, with the few features coming from Johnny Cinco, Lucci, and Charles the Great. Production comes from Nard & B, Will A Fool, and French house producer Brodinski.
Atlanta-based rapper Johnny Cinco released his newest mixtape Trap Religious today just six weeks after dropping I Swear. He's on pace to drop six tapes in 2015 alone.
The Quality Control-affiliated rapper Johnny Cinco is taking some time in the spotlight with the release of his new mixtape I Swear.
Solid Foundation (Hosted By DJ Drama & QC The Label)
Solid Foundation is a special new instalment in DJ Drama's ongoing "Gangsta Grillz" series, brought you to by Migos' Quality Control Music imprint, or simply "QC The Label". Although it was scheduled to drop during Super Bowl VXIII halftime, it was delayed by several hours, which isn't exactly an uncommon occurrence in the rap game.
