Little Yathcy is the most recent rapper out of Atlanta to take the world by storm. With his distinct voice singing on hooks and his red dreads with beads he’s hard to forget. 2016 has been very prominent for the young Atlanta native. With his soundcloud followers and plays skyrocketing over the last 2 months and sold out shows from New York to LA he is proving to be more than just a “soundcloud rapper.” With Coach K, manager famous for managing Gucci Mane and The Migos, he is slowly becoming one of the most talked about rappers of 2016. Not only has Lil Ytahcy been rising through the ranks of the underground rap scene, he recently was just featured on a song with DJ Carnage AND made appearance at Madison Square Garden as a model for the Yeezy Season 3 premiere.
Madeintyo also hails from ATL and is slowly becoming a household name. He kicked off this year with a collab EP with label mate Royce Rizzy titled, MADEINMURDA He has slowly become a phenomenon after his catchy song Uber Everywhere blew up. There are now count less remixes of this song including a one done by Travis Scott. Madeintyo also had a very legendary performance at Yams Day in New York back in January along side many others in remembrance of the passing of Yams. Expect big things from tyo this year.
55bagz is relatively new the rap scene but he has hit the ground running. He has only been rapping for a couple months now and has already released a solid selection of high quality songs via his soundcloud. As his songs have begun to catch on Bagz has also made waves with even harder visuals. In only a couple months 55bagz has taken over the Cleveland scene and is slowly starting to expand his following from coast to coast. If you haven’t heard this name before I can assure you, you are going to be hearing more often. 55bagz will be performing at SXSW this year and it is surely an artist you won’t want to miss. You’ve been warned.
