Video: Peewee Longway – “Jumanji”
The ATL Mainstay and 1017 Affiliate Welcomes You to the Jungle in the Latest Video From His Recent Spaghetti Factory Mixtape
Critical Praise for Peewee Longway:
“Peewee Longway is one of hip-hop’s secret weapons.” – XXL
“His topic is usually trapping, but that singular scope allows him to be one of Atlanta’s most consistent rappers on the subject.” – Pitchfork
“As a sheer vocal stylist, Longway is an absolutely incredible rapper, one capable of finding five different cadences on one spacey beat and then trying them all out in the space of a single verse.” – Stereogum
One of Atlanta’s leading trap eccentrics, Peewee Longway never runs out of inventive flows. Attacking the bouncy and off-kilter beat from ATL duo Spaghetti Jay, Peewee demonstrates his songwriting talent in “Jumanji,” a bite-sized and boundlessly energetic single. In the video, premiered today by WorldStarHipHop, Peewee relaxes in a tropical climate as he jet skis in a swimming pool, with only a bevy of beautiful women and a pair of lean-sipping spider monkeys. Directed by Omar The Director, “Jumanji” is the latest release from Spaghetti Factory, Peewee’s recent full-length mixtape collaboration with Spaghetti Jay, following the FADER-premiered, Wolf of Wall Street-inspired video for “I Can’t Get Enough.” Premiered last week by HYPEBEAST, the Spaghetti Factory mixtape finds Peewee thundering atop aqueous and speaker-knocking trap production, demonstrating his verbal dexterity, and twisting and contorting words like taffy.
An influential figure in the ATL trap scene, Peewee Longway is a longtime associate of Gucci Mane and Young Thug, and is responsible for connecting the two back in 2013. Praised by Stereogum, XXL, HotNewHipHop, and others for his distinctive style and songwriting ability, Peewee earned the attention of LL Cool J, who called Peewee his favorite new artist. Last year, the MPA BandCamp rapper released The Blue M&M 3, his 11th mixtape since 2014, which featured appearances from Quavo, Young Dolph, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and Offset, and features the sleeper hit “Rerocc” (1.8 million streams on Spotify and over 9 million views on YouTube). Distributed by EMPIRE, Spaghetti Factory is currently available to stream and purchase.

Peewee Longway, born Quincy Williams, is an Atlanta based artist known for his unorthodox flow and extraordinary use of intonation. Hailing from the tough streets of South Atlanta, Peewee, as his friends refer to him, grew up in a single parent home with one brother and one sister. Regardless of the obstacles he was presented with Peewee Longway still found a way to persevere and become known as one of Atlanta’s most revered lyrical new artists. His debut mixtape Money, Pounds, Ammunition was released in March of 2013. Though most became familiar with Peewee Longway from his affiliation with his mentor, and close friend, Gucci Mane’s label 1017, he actually nurtured and created his own imprint, MPA Bandcamp Music Group. The next release, Running Around the Lobby, picked up steam and earned Peewee loyal fans that call themselves “Lobby Runners”. In turn this became the name to the third mixtape he put out that same year, in December of 2013.
Much like his peers that emerged from the Trap Music explosion in Atlanta, such Young Thug and Future, Peewee’s work ethic is phenomenal having released 10 projects since his debut in 2013. The last three projects Peewee released (Blue M&M King Size & MPA Vol. 2 & 3) were actually released in just months of each other. When asked, Peewee says that among his favorite Groups and Artists are the Hot Boyz, No Limit, Tupac, E40, and Gucci Mane. With hits like “Sneekin and Geekin,” “Cost to Be the Boss,” and “I Just Want the Money,” Peewee began to gain the attention of Legends like LL Cool J, who named him his “favorite new artist”. He also began to record with fellow Artists, such as ASAP Rocky, E40, Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, and Wale. Music Publications including The Fader, Complex, and XXL have also taken notice of the budding superstar, crediting his contribution to the evolution of Southern music. With the release of his most recent project, Longway Sinatra executive produced by Cassius Jay, Peewee hopes to finally catapult his career to the next level. Longway Sinatra will be Peewee Longway’s second commercial release. With the music world on pins and needles waiting for his new musical offering, Peewee takes it all in stride. Known for his bubbly personality, bright smile, and animated hand gestures, he quotes ”The best is yet to come, they’re not ready.”
