Lonely x Nasaan + JustMario

In a world of songs with starter pack samples, Lonely x Nasaandelivers a sultry ’90s hit in a new and refreshing way. Produced by JoFlame, the track has an R&B feel with a hiphop, down Souf bounce that’s sure to please the ears of both oldheads and cool kids alike.

Nasaan has been making a name for himself on Soundcloud for a grip, and this single is another sure hit for the emerging emcee. With a solid alley oop from JustMario on the hook, the track gives us the best of both worlds. Listen next time you’re feeling a little lonely.

If you’re looking for the perfect end of summer banger to ride out to and instill pride in the heart of every true ATLien, look no further.

Pussy Boy x Mz. Daisy {Official Video} 

The surprising girl power anthem of the summer comes in the form of what would appear to the naked eye to be a diss track. Emcee Mz. Daisy is a literally and metaphorically colorful artist who has been putting in work on the indie Atlanta scene for quite some time. Along with hoping to spread positive vibes and good times to all she encounters, she also holds no stops when it comes to keeping it real. This shows in the video for Pussy Boy. 

     Shot in the Old Fourth Ward, one of the most flourishing creative hubs in the city, Mz. Daisy and her prismatic posse chill out as she puts you on about the type of men she refuses to let in her aura. While the title can sound like a negative track about men, it’s definitely a track that lists all the signs of a fuckboy without slandering the real ones. She confronts topics like ignorance and over-sexualization as turn offs. This was something I could definitely relate to and I think many lady listeners will as well. Check out the rad rainbow visuals below! 

3:16 x CyHi the Prynce [Official Video]


Though the video dropped last week, it’s dope enough that I thought I’d still bring it to you guys today. From his DOPE Black Hystori Project, G.O.O.D.’s own CyHi the Prynce gives us controversial visuals for his track entitled 3:16 . [True rap heads will get both meanings of the title.] Keeping in line with the theme of the mixtape and the tradition of Cyhi, the track talks about real subjects that plaque our commuinity and as always is laced with plenty of triple entendres that take a few listens to truly take in. In the video, Cyhi dons an all-black preacher’s robe and sits on a pew, drinking some dark and smoking a cigarette at times. While it is risky and borderline-blasphemous, I can respect the artistic expression and wordplay. Check out the vid below and let me know what you think. Also check back tomorrow for footage of CyHi and labelmate Pusha T at the MNIMN tour stop in ATL.

Upper Echelon x Travi$ Scott ft. T.I. + 2 Chainz


This is one the ratchets will definitely enjoy. After giving us bangers like Pusha T‘s Blocka and his own Quintana, Travi$ Scott is back with Upper Echelon. The song features ATL’s own 2 Chainz and the Kang himself T.I. The song is dope; def makes me wanna crank a random turn-up dance one time for the nation. I see it definitely getting radio play soon. The album artwork is subtle and simplistic yet clever and dope as well. Check out why Scott is up next below.

With Cruel Summer on the way (September 4, to be exact) the G.O.O.D. Music clan is up and at em seeking to establish themselves in the game as the most respected and prolific rap supergroups in the game. Though this year they’ve gotten hate from unexpected sources, (ie Lil Wayne’s diss aimed at Pusha T http://awe.sm/o1Kz6 and what sounded like shots at the group from rapper Childish Gambino http://awe.sm/e1nFt ) the group is going harder than ever and with the way Ye’s recruitng some of the best in the game; I think they may soon have that title. Watch the video below to see their lineup and a little about that what G.O.O.D. Music’s good music means to them.

Ivy League Club x Cyhi the Prynce

G.O.O.D. Music Atlanta emcee and proclaimed Mr. Redan Road Cyhi the Prynce has dropped Ivy League Club, a new mixtape that showcases his lyrical talent and wordplay as his others mixtapes have. Keeping up with themed mixtapes like Ivy’s predecessor Royal Flush 2, Cyhi’s refers to his fans as the Ivy League Club on this mixtape, and is sure to make more of them with it. This tape has hits; the 808s are crazy, AND it has excellent collabs with other upcoming artists such as Schoolboy Q,  Big K.R.I.T., Yelawolf, Pill, and Travis Porter, as well as a verse from Niggas in Paris producer Hit Boy. I saw him perform in December and I must say I am completely rooting for the dude; he gave one of the best performances I have ever seen and dapped up as many fans as he could. Every since he tweeted ” I wasn’t on Mercy because I can’t afford a Lambourghini and I like my music to be truthful!”, I knew I’d be a fan for life. Check out A-Town ft B.O.B. and Travis Porter, and Slick below. If you like what you hear, download it and listen to my personal favorite Drank Smoke ft Big K.R.I.T. and Yelawolf. Might just be July’s Mixtape of the Month..
