[VIDEO] BirdGang Greedy ft Sosa Mann “Ricky!”

It is not too often that rappers can speak about the streets and have the actual credit and backing to prove their credibility. Greedy, born and raised in the gritty streets of Fourth Ward, Auburn Avenue, Atlanta, GA, is a recording artist and savior of street music.

Greedy, a name that speaks for itself, was given to him in the streets as everyone sees that he wants it. Music is the only other thing Greedy ever took serious besides the streets and he believes he was called to be the voice of the streets as he is the last of the real.

Since his brothers passing, Greedy is determined now more than ever to share the stories he and his street family live. “I got to do this” (Greedy)

Greedy’s music and movement is bigger than life! His music tells stories for the hustlers who did not go to school or sleep, rather were out in the streets, making money, not just for themselves, but to support their family members and brothers who are serving time.

Greedy is coming into the industry with organic music that expresses pain, motivation, and praise of loyalty. He has an ear for production and frequently collaborates with Beat Monster Marc and YFN Lucci for records that are not only for the streets, but records that are club bangers and radio friendly.

The era of gimmick street music is over and Greedy is here to make that change and save trap rap!
