Young Dolph has been grinding for years, but more recently he's found himself with a considerable regional following and a few breakout hits. After consistently dropping mixtapes, it seems like the right time for Dolph to come through with his first album, which he's releasing independently. King Of Memphis has the rapper teaming with mostly Atlanta producers, with Mike WiLL Made It, TM88, Zaytoven, Nard & B, and Drumma Boy contributing.

First up, he shared a preview of a track with Future and his go-to producer Metro Boomin, a recipe for success on paper, and judging by the video clip, also in practice.

Future Announces "Dirty Sprite 2" Mixtape Mar 18, 2015 at 10:15am
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" 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).

Mike WiLL Made It Reveals Rae Sremmurd's "SremmLife 2" Is In The Works Aug 5, 2015 at 04:30pm
Rae Sremmurd's SremmLife was a perfectly orchestrated album release in a broken system. While most rappers wait months or even years beyond the peak of their hype to drop their debut, the Sremm Bros were right on the money, and as a result, the album is still selling to this day (the fact that it was jam-packed with singles didn't hurt). While they've surely got a few more records to market from LP1, the follow-up is already underway according to mentor, Mike WiLL Made it.

After momentarily hitting a stumbling block with Big Gucci Sosa, the collaborative tape with Chief Keef that was never released, Gucci Mane returns to his impeccably on-time release schedule for 2014. After already releasing 10 projects this year, big GuWop is prepared to drop Trap God 3, predictably, on 10/17. 
Young Thug's Most Entertaining Lyrics
Young Thug's Most Entertaining Lyrics Oct 25, 2015 at 12:20pm
You might be thinking "Here we go, yet another dissection into the enigma that is Young Thug." But that's just the thing with Thugger. At surface value he may appear to be an overly flamboyant, drug fueled nonsense rapper, but it seems that the further we dig into his releases and their lyrics, the more bountiful they seem.

Rae Sremmurd kicked off last year with the release of their debut album, which has made it's way onto many a year-end list, perhaps to the ire of Ebro. Nonetheless it's hard to deny the album had hits/bangers in basically every song on it.

Red Lobster Responds To Beyonce's "Formation" Feb 7, 2016 at 11:03am
Beyoncé's new single, and accompanying video, is bold and unapologetically black. Due to her celebrity, she may only be able to dine at the most exclusive of 5-star restaurants these days, though on "Formation," she reminded fans of her Southern-fried roots. "When he fuck me good I take his ass to Red Lobster," sings Bey on the opening verse, in what's become the song's most talked about lyric.

Mike WiLL Made It Calls Out Rappers Who Are Copying Swae Lee's Style Jun 22, 2015 at 11:52am
Mike WiLL Made It's imprint, Ear Drummers, has already proven a success with the likes of Rae Sremmurd and Two-9. Rae Sremmurd have undoubtedly elevated higher than Two-9 off the bat, however, Two-9 are catching up with hits like "Check At." In the meantime though, the squeaky-voiced and energetic rappers of Rae Sremmurd, Swae Lee and Slim Jimmy, have cemented a new style and flow, and thus they are seeing imitators pop up everywhere.

Review: Gucci Mane’s "The State Vs. Radric Davis II" Jan 3, 2014 at 04:52pm
Keeping Gucci Mane out of the headlines is no easy task. Once again he’s back, although this time with the release of his digital album The State Vs. Radric Davis II: The Caged Bird Sings.  While the rapper is surrounded by mounting legal problems, he's nonetheless found the time to keep his fans fed with this Christmas day release. As with most Gucci projects, the production on The State Vs. Radric Davis II is a strong point. Heat from Atlanta beatsmiths Honorable C-Note, Zaytoven, and Mike WiLL Made It make the album an easy listen.

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.
