Key! has been highly respected in the Atlanta scene for years now, though it seems like he's finally starting to get some exposure outside of the trap world.
Sonny Digital Feat. Swae Lee
"Black Beatles" made a last minute bid for song of the summer, and it's continued its upward trajectory into the fall, swiftly climbing the charts over the last few weeks. Listening through SremmLife 2, it's clear that Swae Lee, the younger and more melodically-inclined of the brothers, is on quite a roll. On "That's It," his new collaboration with Sonny Digital, he keeps the run going, reuniting with the beatmaker for the first time since SremmLife's "Up Like Trump."

Trust Me Sonny
Sonny Digital & Que
2013's Forbes Atlanta mixtape was a demonstration of the collaborative power of Sonny Digital and Que, and while the two have worked together on a rapper-producer level since, "Trust Me Sonny," is a a reunion proper reunion complete with equal-billing. The chorus is immediately reminiscent of Makonnen's recent banger, "Trust Me Danny," but from there, the record has an energy all its own, as the two rappers trade bars over some industrially-informed production, bring an array of animated vocal deliveries that should make their peers jealous.
Bout A Dolla
Maybaxh Hot Feat. 21 Savage
It's time to get acquainted with a hard street rapper by the name of Maybaxh Hot. He hasn't put out too much since last year's DJ Scream-hosted mixtape, Hot Wixk, but he's back with a big one featuring his fellow Decatur native, the red-hot 21 Savage. Their new collab, "Bout a Dolla," is produced by one of 21's closest collaborators in Sonny Digital, the man behind the menacing "Red Opps."

Calling on Key! & IloveMakonnen for the features, Sonny decides to liberate the new song “Love It” on his soundcloud page.
Jace has impressed with his latest string of weekly Friday releases. "Lil Tape" was particularly hot. Today, Jace taps the Atlanta triumvirate of Zaytoven, Sonny Digital, and TrapMoneyBenny to produce his newest banger "Oh No. Jace does what he does best and flexes on his exes, of whom there appear to be many. "Oh no" is not an earnest cry of despair, but rather a mockery of anyone and everyone who has ever gotten on Jace's bad side.
We Be On
Sonny Digital & Que
Que and Sonny Digital have long been fixtures in the Atlanta game. A few years back, they teamed up for the joint Forbes Atlanta mixtape, one of the biggest street tapes of '13, and they collaborated a couple of times last year, including on Que's hit single "Gucci Said." They're now working on another full project, and today, they've dropped the first track off the upcoming tape: "We Be On." Que and Sonny have also shared a music video to the new song.
Hell 2 Pay
Fresh off the release of his official music video for "Go," a collaboration with fellow Indianapolis native and BFF Drayco McCoy, Mathaius Young is back this afternoon with a brand new record produced by Sonny Digital.
According To My Watch
During his opening DJ set at last night's release party for Joey Purp's iiiDrops, Sonny Digital dropped an unreleased collab with Chief Keef that was met with a rave response from the Chicago crowd. One night later, that track, entitled "According to My Watch," has made its way online courtesy of FakeShoreDrive.

Young Sizzle & Sonny Digital
Young Sizzle & Sonny Digital maybe best known for their trap-infused production, but that's not all they can do. Coming out from behind the boards and jumping in the booth, the two ATL artists decide to link up for a new record called “Fade Away.”
Let's Get Lit
Finding Novyon is a rapper and producer from Minnesota who appears to be BFFs with Allan Kingdom (and Bobby Raps). He's been cooking heavily with Sonny Digital as of late. Yesterday, they shared a track called "Let's Get Lit" that Novyon claims is the "coldest song of summer 2016." "Let's Get Lit" is standard fare from Sonny Digital -- distorted 808s, some sort of lightening effect above (in this case, bells). Novyon's flow, (somewhat reminiscent of Lil Uzi Vert) and vocal presence sound great on this beat.
Atlanta producer and emcee Sonny Digital has been showing off his recently revealed vocal abilities on a number of tracks, and “Mona Lisa” is the latest addition to his catalog. The song retains the ATL vibe Sonny Digital was brought up in, but he applies a softer touch overall for a more laid back track.
We Don't Know
About a month since his last self-released track, "Go," Sonny Digital has returned with the Zaytoven-produced "We Don't Know." As he's already proven his ability to rap over his own productions, it's been exciting to see Sonny try his skills at beats from other top-notch ATL producers.
