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.
