Ladies and Gentleman, meet Brooklyn emcee Bobby Shmurda.
The 20-year-old rapper from East Flatbush, Brooklyn is a member of the GS9 music group, which also includes artists like Rowdy Rebel (of "Shmoney Dance"), Richie P and Cory Finesse, all of whom make hard-nosed street music that bears some similarities to drill.
"Hot Nigga" was released in March, and it's one of the crew's best tracks, thanks to Shmurda's deft rhymes over the beat to Lloyd Banks' "Jackpot." The video shows GS9's locally-focused style, with Shmurda bringing seemingly the whole block out for the video shoot.
The new EP from Scotty ATL, Scion AV Presents: OTR2SJ, is now available for free streaming and download. The six-song release finds that rising Atlanta rapper further differentiating himself in both the local and national hip-hop world. A soulful and fiery talent, he is truly an MC to be watched.
Scion AV Presents: OTRSJ is a sample-free affair. The majority of the songs were produced by DJ Burn One and the 5PMG team, while Childish Major and Prolyfic handled the other two tracks. The EP also features guest verses from Killer Mike, Trouble and Rich the Kid. Be on the lookout for a video from Scion AV Presents: ORT2SJ this July.
