Scotty ATL: XXL Freshman 2014

#ATLTop20 #Certified !!!
Until now, Scotty has been a humble force brewing within the rap scene of New Atlanta. Always laid-back and "Cool", Scotty's newest project, F.A.I.T.H. (Forever Atlanta In The Heart) burned up the streets, taking Scotty ATL from a local hustler to a nationwide budding superstar. Armed with media support from XXL, Fader, SPIN, Pitchfork, Worldstar, LiveMixtapes, Hot 107, 94.5 and Ballers Eve; mixtapes hosted by the legendary DJ Scream and breakthrough DJ Burn One. Close relationships with artists like Cyhi, Young Dro and the fast-rising fellow Atalien Trinidad James, Scotty continues to push further into the public eye. His new video "GAME" featuring Trinidad Jame$ and Big Krit landed on 106 & Park as thenew joint of the day and is currently in rotation on MTV Jams. As part of #NewAtlanta, Scotty is the definition of what the various artists from different crews that identify with the "#NewAtlanta" trend represent: original, classic hip hop music with substance. It's artists like him who are giving rap fans a reason to finally pay attention to new ATL talent. Scotty grew up on the Eastside of Atlanta, raised by a single mother. Life wasn't always easy for him and the block he grew up on, so the "hood" topics we hear in his lyrics are a reflection of reality for this artist, nothing we hear is contrived. These days, Scotty navigates through the industry as a young boss full of nonstop hustle, integrity, a flawless live performance harkening the days of the real MC.

Cool Club's own Scotty ATL and Taylor Gang's Sledgren do damage on "Round Dis Mfkr." This track shows Scotty ATL bragging confidently about creating his own lane and making moves independently. Don't take Scotty lightly when he's says he's about to spazz "round" this motherfucker. This sh*t slaps! | Shot by Mario Kristian

  1. He got it. Also IMHO, SIC ILL also deserved to be on the XXL Freshman list. He's like Logic. No doubt, he'll be on here next year. SIC ILL - Labyrinth Zone Act 1 [Official Video]
