Born and raised in the heart of Louisiana’s Creole and Cajun country, newcomer GUS (an acronym for “Grind Until Successful”) just dropped his first project, “T.O.D.”, a four-track EP that definitely reflects his lyrical prowess.
In recent years, GUS had the opportunity to travel the world, using each experience to broaden his horizon and finely hone his songwriting skills. It is evident that his style is heavily influenced by legends like Lil Wayne, Kevin Gates, OutKast, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar and other lyrical beasts.
GUS is currently working on new music set for release in late 2021.
“I AM A TEAM PLAYER ABOVE ALL ELSE. I THINK THE WORLD VIEWS MILWAUKEE AS A BENCHWARMER CITY, AND I WANT TO SHOW THEM THAT WE’RE JUST AS TALENTED AS ANY CITY, IF NOT MORE TALENTED.” – MOCITY
Milwaukee native, MoCity, follows up his first studio album, P4TG (Pray For The Gemini), with Benchwarmers. MoCity stated that P4TG was more about him as an individual while Benchwarmers is about where he is from, and all the people who’ve helped him put this album together.
When asked about what makes this album different from the first album, Mocity responded, “I had more fun with this one, but I still stayed close to my roots. I got headphone music and I got riding music, there is something on here for everyone.”
Atlanta’s own Paxquiao just dropped double dopeness with his latest release with Sy Ari Da Kid entitled “2 Sides Of A Story”. Paxquiao is preparing to release even more new music in the near future. It’s gonna be a super hot summer!
New Orleans Rap star on the rise, JAYARSON, teams up with Uptown New Orleans veteran producer KMorGOLD and New Orleans hip hop royalty, Jakk Jo, the Prince son of the Queen of Southern Rap, Mia X. The three team up on KMorGOLD’s tribute instrumental which mixes up sounds of the Big Tymers’ “Get Your Roll On” and the Pharrell track “Frontin”. The video is available on YouTube, with the single available for purchase/streaming on all major digital platforms.
JAYARSON’s nostalgic verse graciously uses “Get Your Roll On” to pay homage to a solid New Orleans classic. Jakk Jo hypes the track with a classic New Orleans chant like “Come On, Come On, Come On”. They team up with Dope Media to create a real picture of daily New Orleans party life. It is a light hearted visual that is really needed at this time!
Produced by one of ATL’s super producers (Shawty Fresh), Young Cooley’s “Yes I Did” is set to be a hit single. The visuals to “Yes I Did” were just released. The song is available on his “My Turn Now” album.

Given the current state of Hip Hop, a lot of fans are left wanting more and feeling like there’s just no substance to the music or even the visuals. New Orleans MVP JAYARSON is here to end that notion with the video to one of his newest singles, “Resurrection”. The song is a testament to his strength and virility when it comes to the rap game. Never one to back down from a challenge or fail to deliver, JAYARSON is working hard to make sure he goes down in history as one of the dopest to ever rock a mic. JAYARSON is always giving his fans something unique, compelling and all around exciting and because of that, he has staying power.
“Resurrection” is included in his latest body of work, “In the Meantime 2”, available everywhere music is downloaded and streamed. The video is directed by @dexstr8dope (Dope Media/Too Dope Boyz).
Nashville standout Slimm Body just dropped his new EP entitled “Cartier Visions”. Slimm has quite the interesting story that includes being near fatally shot in 2016 to currently fighting an unjust homicide chart. He is in the process of releasing new music, visuals and merchandise. His EP symbolizes the struggles and hardships, as well as his effort to positively overcome the hood and the poverty and violence found within. When asked what he hopes fans take away from the Cartier Visions songs/project, Slimm answers with this:
“Progression. From where I’m from to where I am now… When you close your eyes you see visions (sights, sounds, smells, feelings, etc…) from your past, present and HOPEFULLY your future… Cartier Visions represents coming from the dirt, and even from adolescence knowing that one day you will be living finely/ seeing things that people from the bottom never get to witness.”
“From the Southside of Atlanta to the Northside, 2 n*ggas that made somethin out of nothin, 2 different point of views, 2 real, 2 sides” -Sy Ari Da Kid
Authenticity is scarce in the age of trends going viral every few seconds. Respected by many for living the words that they speak in their lyrics, Sy Ari and Paxquiao deliver the facts on “2 Sides Of A Story”.
In an industry where wordplay is seeming to make its way back to the forefront, the 2 Atlanta emcees take turns smothering groovy instrumentals with double entendres and content that we can relate to. With features from KapG, DaBaby and a verse from the fallen Atlanta legend, Slim Dunkin, the duo delivers a flawless project that should be given an honest listen. [teamflatradio.com]
