Scotty ATL has remained consistent as Atlanta’s music scene has progressed over the years and what’s most exciting about his new project ‘Candler Melrose’ is that it shows his evolution as a businessman and artist. Scotty ATL has truly branded a sound on this project that is rooted in Southern rap stylings along with the emcee’s impeccable beat selection. It’s more of a tale of success than just the hustle, two things Scotty ATL is extremely familiar with.
It’s not too far-fetched to consider ‘Candler Melrose’ a classic project from Scotty ATL already with its stacked production and feature credits. Mega producers and frequent collaborators like Zaytoven, DJ Burn One, DJ Tune, Tasha Catour and many more helped to create the space for Scotty ATL to talk about his journey as a rapper who easily balances running his own business. Other collaborators on the project include Big K.R.I,T., Curren$y, G Perico, Ace Hood, Sleepy Brown, and Young Dro to name a few who aid Scotty ATL in bringing it all to life. Even with the long list of collaborators, the lyrical delivery from the East Side representer is what stands out the most.
Outside of rapping, Scotty ATL successfully runs a custom grills business based in Atlanta with Grillz by Scotty which has led him to receive some high-profile clients such as Issa Rae, Tory Lanez, Big Boi of Outkast, Atlanta Hawks, PUMA, and has provided a new level of freedom for the young entrepreneur to focus on creating music on his own time. He’s even been a featured guest on the Steve Harvey Show, The 85 South Podcast, and has performed twice during Rugby ATL’s halftime games, outside of his countless accomplishments with his business. Scotty ATL is proof that you don’t have to stay in one lane as a rapper and can still feed your audience with good, solid music.
Scotty ATL releases another single “Good Pressure” from his upcoming project ‘Candler Rd To Melrose’. “Good Pressure” is one of Scotty’s favorite songs because it’s honest, vulnerable, authentic, and it’s real music, the world is in a space where it needs real music even if it’s just a minute. It’s motivation music and it’s a breath of fresh air to get you through the day.

successful music career and for the budding music artist, she’s more interested in sharing the

Southern roots. Her music is best described as a vibe and with one listen, you’ll definitely agree.
She recently caught the attention of mega producer Drumma Boy who’s aiding the artist with

Longtime collaborators Lil Mikey TMB and super producer KC Da Beatmonster just released an audio and cinematic visual to their latest single “Spin”. “Spin” is the first single from Lil Mikey TMB’s upcoming fourth project ‘Sum’n Special’ set to release late July.
Along with the official release of “Big Dreamer”, King Elway shares the MillieX directed video, which comes as the latest single from Elway’s upcoming project entitled 2 Soulful. With this being the first full length project that he’s released in over two years, Elway is pulling out all the stops, even shooting the music video in Las Vegas.
“Big Dreamer” is a motivational record that offers the listener some inspiration when it comes to working towards their goals. He offers the same type of encouragement his OGs gave him, coming from a small town. They often told him to think bigger and that’s the message he wants his listeners to take from the track; that you can think bigger than your environment and rise to the occasion. Featuring production by super producer Black Metaphor, King Elway was able to set his position as a frontrunner in the Atlanta scene as he layers the smooth Southern stylistic production with hard hitting bars. The visuals find the rapper in his element after choosing to go beyond his hometown (Griffin, GA). Now, he’s living good with his paper stacked surrounded by beautiful women.
King Elway continues to deliver real, good music and the video aims at bringing his words to life. “Let me hear yo 16 I bet my shit cleaner,” he spits. “That’s why Real Niggas know the sound ain’ got no hit Singles,” he continues in a line that is sure to grab your ear once you press play. The single joins King Elway’s already hefty catalog and is just an indication of what to expect on the forthcoming 2 Soulful.
