Ralo & Young Scooter
Ralo of Famerica and Young Scooter of Black Migo Gang are intent on uniting their respective brands and becoming a "dream team" that's ready to represent the streets of Atlanta. Scooter was the host of Ralo's November tape, Diary of the Streets, and Ralo dropped a guest verse on the Freebandz rapper's new Street Lottery 3 tape.
Boot Me Up
Young Dro & Zaytoven
Young Dro's Da Reality Show was one of 2015's most slept-on albums, proving the Atlanta hasn't missed a step since he burst on the scene a decade ago. One of the project's biggest singles, "Ugh" paired him with fellow ATL icon Zaytoven, and the two have now teamed for an entire project with Boot Me Up (originally billed as Boot Up).
DJ Scream of Hoodrich Entertainment has taken a break from hosting ATL's hottest mixtapes to drop a compilation tape of his own: Legend. The new tape is marketed as "a collection of DJ Scream classics and rare exclusives," and the tracklist shows just that.
Shanell is getting a lift from her label mate Lil Wayne for her debut mixtape. Produced exclusively by Zaytoven, the YMCMB/Republic songstress stretches her voice in many different places on the 11 track mixtape.
I Am Juugman
Yung Ralph has been buzzing on the Atlanta scene ever since he dropped "Look Like Money" 2007. The frequent Gucci Mane and Zaytoven collaborator has had one of the best years of his career in 2015, appearing on Young Thug's Slime Season and now dropping his long awaited mixtape I Am Juugman. Laced with 20 tracks, the mixtape features the likes of Fetty Wap, Young Thug, London on Da Track, Zayotven, Birdman, Jacquees, and more.
BeatKing & Nephew Texas Boy
Just over a month after dropping 3 Weeks, his first official project on Sony RED, Houston Club God BeatKing is back with a joint mixtape with Nephew Texas Boy, Texlanta. The new tape brings together the sounds of two cities that have been influencing each other for many years, perhaps never more so than today.
B.o.B & London Jae
Well here’s an unexpected treat for Bobby Ray fans. Out of nowhere, the ATL rapper decides to link up with his fellow No Genre Labelmate London Jae for a new joint mixtape called NASA, which is an acronym for "Niggas Ain't Shit Association."
Finally Rollin 2
Chief Keef doesn't always deliver on his promises, but he didn't disappoint tonight, as he's come through with his new mixtape, Finally Rollin 2. The tape finds Sosa rapping over classic old-school (if you're Keef's age) southern bangers, a handful of which dropped last week, including remixes of Weezy's "Stuntin' Like My Daddy" (or in Keef's case, "My Mama") as well as '00s classics from both GuWop and Jeezy.
For Trappers Only
After a slight delay, XXL Freshman Shy Glizzy comes through today with his new mixtape For Trappers Only.
Lil Donald aka Lil Don Loyal got his name out earlier this year with his breakout hit, "Juice." He's since linked up with the Freebandz gang, which is run, of course, by Mr. Future Hendrix. He's now released a new mixtape via Freebandz, Freeband Loyal, which, for a debut tape, features an huge lineup of features and producers.
Larry June is a Bay Area emcee affiliated with OG Maco's OGG crew. We've heard him on tracks with Maco, such as "Ain't Worried," and we just got the video to the essential turn-up cut, "Cooking." Now, he's bringing us his most complete body of work yet with his new #GoodJobLarry mixtape.
You may remember Hurricane Chris from his breakout single, "Ay Bay Bay," in 2007. He hasn't come anywhere close to getting another top 10 hit, and though his output has been sparse, most everything he has managed to put out since has been banging. Chris hails from Shreveport, and you can hear that same fiery hunger in his rhymes that we've come to expect from the Baton Rouge kings Boosie and Webbie.
Ain't No Mixtape Bih
One of the most hilarious, and surprisingly progressive, rapper responses to Caitlyn Jenner's transition came from Plies in the form of an Instagram video. Declaring "Ain't no Bruce bih!", the Southern rapper set off a meme of sorts, and now things come full circle on his latest mixtape, Ain't No Mixtape Bih.
As OG Maco, Young Scooter and Future have all done at some point this year, Trouble's paired up with fellow Atlanta native and beatsmith Zaytoven for his entire new tape. He pays homage to that fact by naming the mixtape #Zaydidit.
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.

Fat Fly Nigga

Today Plies releases the second installment in Da Last Real Nigga Left. Following the first tape, which dropped in January, the Florida native releases the 21 track follow-up today. Featuring guest appearances from Rico Love, Lil Reese, August Alsina and Lil Boosie, the project is largely carried by Plies himself, with all but one of the spots showing up in the bonus tracks.
Rich Nigga Timeline
If you'll allow us take this Migos vs. Beatles thing a bit further, the Atlanta trio's new tape, Rich Nigga Timeline, is their Hard Day's Night -- that is, their third big release.
