The Song:

Just in time for the weekend, Atlanta via Jamaica DJ/artist Genius taps East Atlanta rappers Felipe andK-Noe for another trap banger, “Ego Trippin,” a track from Genius’ forthcoming A Eastside Story: Deluxe Edition album. “Ego Trippin” has the artists boasting about lavish lifestyles over slapping production from Beat Attikz. Following the release of his epic 45-track, XXL-premiered “Gucci‘s Home” mix, Genius continues to make a name for himself with new music of his own on A Eastside Story: Deluxe Edition, a collaborative project with Felipe. Releasing June 17th, the album includes features from K Camp, Que, Hoodrich Pablo Juan, Mr. 2-17, K-Noe, Rich Espy, T-Hood, Coca Vango, Scotty ATL,and Two-9.

Last month, VIBE debuted Genius’ “Movie 2.0,” which features Que and frequent collaborator K Camp, while HipHopDX shared the Make It Work video, in which Genius and Felipe mob out on a liquor store run. Currently K Camp’s DJ, Genius has hosted Migos‘ first two mixtapes and worked with artists such as 2 Chainz, Travis Porter, Scotty ATL, and more in his early days as an artist. Immigrating to Atlanta at the age of 13, Genius grew up idolizing the DJ’s, or “selectors,” in his home country of Jamaica and decided that he wanted to learn the craft to the very best he could. Blown away by the technology available in the U.S., Genius quickly taught himself programs and became the plug for selling mix CD’s in high school, blending current hits with his reggae collection. Selling mixes turned into throwing parties for big money in college, where he brought Drake and Nicki Minaj to Georgia Southern University. Promoting gave way to hosting mixtapes and hanging out at studios, to eventually breaking records in clubs. A Eastside Story: Deluxe Edition, releasing June 17th, will further establish Genius as a major player in the Atlanta rap movement.
