Video: T.I. & MTV Talk New ATL Artists

Atlanta may just be the hottest city in hip-hop right now. T.I., Young Jeezy and Ludacris all stand on top as kings of the game right now. Love him or hate him, ATL transplant Soulja Boy has already tapped into the young-listener market like no other, and his “Turn My Swag On” is probably the biggest rap record in the clubs right now. The veteran Gucci Mane is now out of jail and has the streets screaming for him. And let’s not forget Andre 3000 — whenever he steps out of the creative hideout he’s lounging in, a classic verse is a forgone conclusion.

And while other cities certainly have their share of heavyweights, Atlanta keeps turning out young talent who make themselves immediate heavy-hitters in local clubs and on the radio. Def Jam has just inked the trio F.L.Y., who are stirring up a dance movement with the song “Swag Surfin’, ” and T.I. is championing two of the city’s brightest prospects: Yung L.A. and B.o.B. ….read the rest @ MTVNews.com

MTV’s Top 5 ATL Acts To Watch In 2009: B.o.B., OJ Da Juiceman, F.L.Y. (Fast Life Youngstaz), Yung L.A., Fonzworth Bentley.

Like I said in the last post, get ready for Swag Surfin’.

    I’m out in Cali and we carry everything except Ferarri, Lambo and Bugatti. But Aston Martin, Bentley, Porche we got all that shit….but seriously if you want the hook up get at me. 45% off

    The New York Bloods aren’t even official. I respect the old NY Gangs like the Decepts, The Lo-Lifes, The Black Spades, etc.

    Not saying gang life is what’s good, but at least they had the smarts to start & organize thier own shit. These bootleg Bloods, taking what they seen in a couple of movies & starting a following with it? Shits corny. L.A. Bloods & Crips don’t respect these fake bangers in NY.

    If you’re not getting money by being in a gang, what the fuck are you banging for? Just to be down?

    I’ve lost a few friends over that shit. Niggas who I used to kick it with that I don’t really fuck with anymore cause I don’t wanna be around dumb shit.

    ^I mean I was born in raised in North Philly…tons of street niggas out there in “gangs” rocking red.

    Yeah its not compton, but if they aren’t bloods, fuck else do you call a bunch of niggas on a corner wearing red.

    I’m with you.I already made the lil nigga a deal though and he folded.All he had to do was buy his ticket to Va. and I had a gig for him.In hindsight I should’ve bought the ticket instead of trying to make a point about responsibility.

    =========================================
    I was living in the South Bronx when the Bloods started popping off in NY. I saw little niggas going from barely being able to read, to having hundreds of Blood codes memorized. I seen niggas get opened up, I’ve seen niggas get G-Checked.

    To admire the structure & comittment that cats had to OG Mack & the gang is one thing, but on the flip side, most of the Bloods I knew weren’t getting money like that. If you’re not making money, fuck are you banging for?
    It’s them coward niggas that join gangs.

    some mexicans will fuck you & your whole family up. They don’t ride dolo either. if you fight one, best believe there are more. It usually aint a big deal if you got homies though. The leaders don’t wanna get takin down over small shit. just these kids. But the MM backs a grip of gangs & got police connections in TX.

    i’d hope for the latter with my girl. I don’t think I would be mad at that, but I would use it for leverage for my personal schemes. lol

    I asked my girl and she was like “no i cant do that to my family,ever” then I put the camera on her and she follows my lead and lets me do me. Makes me believe she would possibly be up to it

  42. D_Block_4_Life Says:

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, in any big business or corporation, when the entity does well the person in charge will receive the credit whether it was his doing or not. If the entity falters or performs poorly the person in charge will also bear the brunt and have to own up to that failure in the public’s eye. This is how everyday businesses work in the real world. Therefore regardless who Hov signed, from 05-08 or so Def Jam was the most successful hip hop label during that tenure hence why Hov’s term as president was a successful one despite what disgruntled artist like Method Man, Joe Budden, LL etc said. Just incase anyone is conveniently suffering from Alzheimer’s; here are the artist and their accolades:

    Young Jeezy 2 platinum and 1 gold album
    Kanye West 2 platinum albums
    Ross 2 gold albums
    Rhianna 1 platinum album
    Ne-yo 3 platinum albums
    The Dream 1 gold album
    Fab 1 gold album
    Ludacris 1 platinum and 1 gold album
    GFK 1 gold
    Juelz Santana 1 platinum album
    Nas 1 gold album and 1 on the cusp

    The company did well when he was in power hence why he was successful.
