MP3: Genius ft. Scotty ATL – “Never Satisfied”
The DJ/Artist’s A Eastside Story: Deluxe Edition LP Releases Tomorrow, Featuring K Camp, Two-9, More
Over the past few years of touring and working in the studio with K Camp, Migos, and other rising acts, Genius has emerged from the shadows as one of Atlanta’s primary tastemakers. Today, the Jamaican-born, ATL-bred DJ/Artist recruits fellow Eastside native Scotty ATL for “Never Satisfied,“ a highlight from Genius’ A Eastside Story: Deluxe Edition LP, a collaborative project with Atlanta newcomer Felipe, which hits stores tomorrow, June 17th. Premiered today by 2DopeBoyz, “Never Satisfied” finds the two emcees rapping about an ambitious woman, but the phrase “Never Satisfied” can also represent a motto for Genius’ project and career-to-date. “Scotty ATL and I have had a long working relationship as he has been featured on of my previous projects,” explains Genius. “Scotty is from the Eastside of Atlanta and it was always my goal to have him be a part of the project. We spoke over the phone and he said he had the perfect record the project was missing. We worked up the record to the final product. Scotty delivers a unique sound to the project that shows the diversity of the Eastside.” Releasing June 17th, the LP 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 week, Genius released “Ego Trippin‘,” a lavish-life Beat Attikz-produced anthem featuring Felipe and K-Noe. “Ego Trippin'” followed the XXL premiere of the epic, 45-track “Gucci
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 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 by the likes of 2 Chainz and Travis Porter in clubs. A Eastside Story: Deluxe Edition, releasing June 17th, will further establish Genius as a major player in the Atlanta rap movement.
