The Best Prison-Released Gucci Mane Tracks Of 2015 May 20, 2015 at 06:39pm
Gucci Mane has released nine projects this year. We don't have to check-- that's more than any other rapper. He also happens to be in prison. Last year, he released 14 projects from the pen, making a cool $1.3 million, and he's on pace to topple those numbers this year.  He's feeding his fans, he's feeding the streets-- though who knows if he's actually the mastermind behind any of this. No matter when these tracks were actually recorded, they're still among the hottest out.

Behind The Beat: Ducko Mcfli Apr 28, 2015 at 09:29am
A year ago, Ducko Mcfli had never gotten his name on a beat with an artist outside of Nashville. He and longtime production partner SykSense had been putting in work for years, even catching the eye of Boi-1da, who signed the pair to a short-term production deal a few years ago. Finally, last March, they sent him one that stuck. He passed it along to his right-hand man, aka the biggest rapper in the world, and next thing you know, Syk and Ducko saw their names next to Drake's "Draft Day."

Along with T.I. and Jeezy, Gucci Mane is among the class of ATL rappers who are credited with founding trap music as we know it today. He's done this not only by dropping an absurd amount of music (even from behind bars), but also by locating his city's most promising young artists and grooming them to become the city's next wave.

There isn't a whole lot of consensus in the Future mixtape canon (namely because there are so many, and pretty much all of them are good), but Dirty Sprite is generally agreed upon as a strong contender for the Atlanta rapper's best non-album work. Early fans will be excited to hear the news that Fewtch is working on a follow-up to the beloved project, announcing the news on Twitter today.
Review: Rae Sremmurd's "SremmLife"
Review: Rae Sremmurd's "SremmLife" Jan 7, 2015 at 04:29pm
2014 may be remembered as one of the weakest years for rap in recent memory, but there were, however, some definite highlights, especially when it came to newcomers. Bobby Shmurda had one of last year’s biggest rap records, DeJ Loaf had one of last year’s most remixed rap records and Young Thug was one of last year’s most talked about rap artists (even if for all of the wrong reasons).

After already releasing 10 projects this year, big GuWop is prepared to drop Trap God 3, predictably, on 10/17. 
A Guide to Atlanta Producers
A Guide to Atlanta Producers Sep 28, 2014 at 01:11pm
Someone once remarked that Chicago and Atlanta had replaced New York City and Los Angeles as the capitals of modern rap music. As blasphemous as that claim might seem, it’s 100% true in 2014. Atlanta has been a dominant force in hip-hop for over a decade now, but since 2010, it has experienced a lot of change. T.I., Jeezy, and Ludacris (sorta) are still around, but a new crop of artists has emerged.

Young Thug Announces New Single With Mike WiLL Made It [Update: New Artwork Revealed] Jul 27, 2014 at 02:54pm
Two of the biggest names in Atlanta's trap scene are about to team for a big single. Very soon, Young Thug and Mike WiLL Made It will unveil their collaborative track "Take A Picture," and today they've unveiled the artwork. Check it out in the gallery above. Fans of Thugger will remember the phrase "Take A Picture" being repeated quite a bit on his 1017 Thug song "Picture Baby," but like "parade," "slime," "YSL" and other keywords he often uses, the phrase is (for some reason) part of his very unique personality.

Mike WiLL Made It had a lengthy interview with The Breakfast Club as he begins the rounds promoting his new album Est. in 1989 Pt. 3. The producer dropped off a new single to follow up the somewhat lacklustre "23", "Buy The World", which is getting a much better reception from hip-hop fans, and as Mike WiLL explains in the interview, that was the point. He refers to "Buy The World" as some "hood Phil Collins shit."
