“Scattered Brain” brings in features from Daz Dillinger, Warren G, BeatKing, Slim Thug, Nephew Texas Boy, Ice Code, Scotty ATL and more.
Checkout the title single “Scattered Brain”, which features D.A. & Daz Dillinger.

Atlanta, GA: Toon’s sound and street-life realness has been influenced by many ATL traditions and icons, but he still brings a voice that is all his own. His philosophy on expressing himself was inspired by T.I. because, as Toon has explained in interviews, “T.I. is the first rapper I really listened to. I’ve been influenced by the way he raps about the struggle and the way he came up. I like folks that come from the bottom and talk about the struggle they went through.” After finding his inspiration in artists like T.I. (and also OutKast’s Andre 3000 who inspired him to be an individual), Toon began recording tracks and sharing them with friends and loved ones as he refined his sound and his style.
In 2018 he released his first big single, “Only,” a hard-hitting rap anthem that reminds listeners not to be blinded by success or struggle when you aren’t the only one who’s going through it.

A relationship with Pimp C and Bun B changed everything
Houston is no stranger to the kind of moments that seemingly bubble up out of cities for extended periods. Atlanta is having its own right now with Future, Migos, 6LACK, Deonte Hitchcock, Yung Thug and countless others pushing the culture in places hip-hop hasn’t seen before. Los Angeles had its own with the rise of TDE, Nipsey Hustle and YG in the last half-decade. It’s all cyclical, these things have happened in New York, the Bay Area, Chicago and Miami over and over in the last 30 years, but when it happens in Houston, it’s special.
The South rarely gets the love it deserves for delivering paradigm shifting albums and epochs because so much of the coverage of the culture comes from the coasts, but Houston is one of those cities that artists from everywhere need to capture if they’re really going to make it.
The first huge Houston moment came with the Geto Boys, who pushed the boundaries on hip-hop storytelling to edges few rapers have dared to even consider exploring since. Scarface, Bushwick Bill and Willie D were responsible for influencing several generations of southern hip-hop artists, including the legendary Underground Kings in Pimp C and Bun B.
As Pimp and Bun grew their stranglehold on the Houston sound, they began turning to rapper/producer Cory Mo to bring Country Rap Tunes to life through his pristine ear for sampling soul classics and hard hitting drum patterns. Cory Mo parlayed his relationship with Pimp and Bun into a discography that can go beat for beat with your favorite producer.
Cory Mo and his brother, Mike Mo, owned and operated the hottest Houston recording studio during one of the biggest moments in Houston hip-hop history when guys like Slim Thug, Paul Wall, Mike Jones and Chamillionaire were all you’d hear on the radio no matter what part of the country you’re from.
These days, Cory Mo runs his studio out of Atlanta and hosts the Country Rap Tunes radio show with Bun B and runs Just Sayin Clothing, a collection of t-shirts, hoodies and hats that essentially captures the essence of who Cory Mo is and where he comes from.
Wanderset sat down with Cory Mo to talk about Houston, his relationship with Pimp and Bun and how he and his brother built the hottest studio in H-Town.
Adjnamedroach (pronounced A DJ Named Roach), the aggressive South Florida rapper who transitioned from DJ to rapper/producer after serving a ten year prison sentence, recently caused a stir with a controversial (atleast in NFL circles), Miami Dolphins Anthem, released his long awaited sophomore release Don’t Come For Me.
It’s already caused a bit of a stir with the inclusion of the Miami Dolphins Anthem, but it’s his aggressive raspy approach to melodic vocals that deserves the conversation. His beats are sick and it’s no wonder, coming from a DJ background, he just has an ear for music.
The Don’t Come For Me album is the product of a trippy party eclectic and aggressively reaching for the stars and wanting more then entitled. The lyrics ooze out to inspire energy and excitement, with a dash of IDGAF x FML x HUSTLE & PARTY! The energy is real and the excitement is even more.
