B.A. The Great Announces Cross Town Mixtape, Dropping October 26th
The ATL Rapper Shares the Manic, Club-Ready “Trap Krazy” Single, Premiered by HYPEBEAST
A promising new voice in ATL’s bustling scene, B.A. The Great specializes in immersive street stories with raw lyricism. Collecting eleven tracks that span the trap spectrum, B.A. The Great announces Cross Town, his first mixtape. Ricocheting from hard-nosed club tracks like the loyalty anthem “Buss Partner,” to introspective boom-bap like the Biggie Smalls-sampling opening track “Everyday Struggle,” Cross Town is an impressive debut. Packed with pearls of wisdom and rhythmic hooks, Cross Town tells a story of redemption, detailing the lengths B.A. forced himself to go through to keep himself alive. Executive produced by Mike WiLL Made It and featuring production from Mike WiLL, Go Grizzly, Lo Get Em, Few Beats, and others, Cross Town arrives on October 26th via EMPIRE.
“I’m a regular guy. I want you to know that I’m going through what you’re going through,” explains B.A. The Great. “I got kids to provide for. I never want you to think that I’m above you. I want you to look me in my eyes, ‘cause I’m talking to the person in front of me.”
To accompany the mixtape announcement, B.A. The Great shares “Trap Krazy,” the tape’s lead single. A blown-out club banger with eerie synths and syncopated handclaps, “Trap Krazy” is wild, but relatable story about the irresistible temptation to act reckless when acquiring a bit of money. Produced by Lo Get Em, the HYPEBEAST-premiered “Trap Krazy” is a showcase for both sides of B.A. The Great: the skillful rapper and the ruthless trapper.
