For new artists, sometimes the only thing standing in between their old fans and new fans is the right feature. But that’s easier said than done for new artists. Without a major budget, new artists often have to rely on connections and good relationships to land a feature. But a good feature can boost you from a local talent to a mainstream sensation. Just look at how Drake’s feature made Makonnen’s ‘Tuesday’ the hit it was.
Atlanta has a good reputation in the industry as far as working relationships go. Unlike New York artists for example, Atlanta artists are known for working with each other instead of competing. That love isn’t only for Atlanta artists though; you’ll find many Atl artists linking with artists from all over.
In the case of Saginaw, Michigan artists King Swavay & ME8ighty, the love for Mary Jane is what led Scotty Atl to hop on the track. Even though 420 has passed, every day is 4/20 for the true cheifers of the culture. In a recent interview ME8ighty reveals he wrote the song for, “anyone who’s running low, on their last and trying to stretch until payday, or even someone who doesn’t smoke at all but mess with a girl that does and they have to buy some for her in hopes of getting to Vickie’s secret”. Can y’all relate? Ever needed Mary to get to Vickie’s?
Whether the answer is yes or no, this new track will have you ready to roll up and enjoy vibes. Michigan is already 420 friendly and after the recent law passed, Atlanta is a little more friendly. What’s most exciting about this song is that there hasn’t been a lot of Michigan-Georgia collabs even though they both have a strong history in the music industry. In the 60s artists were flooding to Detroit to be apart of the new music wave, now Atlanta is the music powerhouse. Check out the new track surely to prove King Swavay & ME8ighty wont be limited to Saginaw, Michigan for long!

Since news of the legal dispute between Rocko and Future began rumors were swarming as to what the settlement would be. Would they go to court? Would their legal dispute end like a dirty divorce? Secretly I think people were hoping for the worst, but it seems to have faired well for both business man. You can bet that the memes were hot and ready and soon as reports revealed that the the two settled in a seven figure deal. But what started messy has ended pretty clean. It is also a smart decision, especially for Future who probably saved thousands in court fees by settling. Also from early reports, Rocko will be getting less than the $10 million he originally proposed. So for Future it seems like a win-win situation. What makes this kind of petty is that the money Future is about to pay out, he’ll make back when the next song drops. When will Rocko ever see this kind of money from a music deal again. Since Future, there hasn’t been a major artist to drop from A1 Records.
Both have been rather hush hush since the news broke, but I’m sure someone will break the silence soon. Some of Future’s remarks were harsh to say the least early on so we’ll see….
As far as loyalty is concerned though, because that has come into question on both sides, I don’t think either should be questioned. The difference is that this is about business and nothing personal. Rocko felt legally entitled to funds he hadn’t received for a business deal the the two had. Regardless of their friendship, business is business. One of the main reasons why people are coming at Rocko though is because his motive seems shady. Greed is actually the word people are using to describe his motive.
If Future’s deal with Epic was unsuccessful and didn’t come with a HUGE advance and too many hits and credits to count, would Rocko still be pursuing this money? Future’s contribution to A1 Records will go down in Hip Hop history and at this point I think it’s pointless to argue over who made who. But it’s obvious who’s success has surpassed the others. Hopefully, Rocko is content with the settlement because Future’s grind hasn’t slowed down. In fact, since signing with Epic in 2011 Future has dropped six albums, three of which were number on Billboard 100. As far as what’s next for Rocko… we’ll have to wait and see. One thing is for sure, we can say goodbye to another Rocko featuring Future track
For Offset’s 26th birthday, Cardi B surprised him with a Rolls Royce Wraith in front of friends and family outside of his Met Gala-themed birthday party “The Set Gala,” at The MacArthur in Downtown Los Angeles Wednesday night.
The Atlanta rapper was filled with excitement, yelling: “She bought me the Wraith,” while squeezing his fiancée in a tight hug.
Born Kiari Kendrell Cephus of Lawrenceville GA, Offset has had quite the year, with five top 10 Hot Rap songs (including his hits with Migos) and a No. 1 hit on the Hot 100 with “Bad and Boujee.” Of course, we could never forget his grand proposal to Cardi B at the Powerhouse 99 concert in Philadelphia in October. He was just featured, along with the other two members of Migos, when Marshmello dropped the highly anticipated track, “Danger.” Happy Birthday, Offset
At the top of 2017 Decturr Redd hinted to fans on “This is 50’ that he was cooking up something special for the year. When asked if he would be dropping an album he didn’t confirm, but fast forward to the end of the year, and a EP later, and I’m sure you didn’t think a collab with OJ was in the works. Waiting for the perfect time to drop, ‘Pyrex’ brings the best out of both artists and is almost reminiscent of that old Atlanta sound that really took Atlanta street music global.
No one can forget OJ’s iconic sound, it was practically stamped in the game. To those who had never heard of OJ before the hood classic ‘Bricks’, his success may have seemed like overnight stardom. But in fact, the same humble beginnings that drove him to where he is, are the same ones he has now. OJ never got too Hollywood for the City and his voice on a new track with one of the city’s rising artists is testament to this.
