ATL Kingpin Ralo Announces Famerica Presents: Plugged In With the Cartel, His Upcoming Mixtape, Releasing November 24th
The Helium-Voiced Emcee Shows Us How He Lives in the Video for the Emotional “On My Kids (Outro)”
Critical Praise for Ralo:
“With “My Brothers,” Ralo shows the full range of his improvements since his last project, displaying a new mastery of his own flow that should be enough evidence of his potential star power.” – Noisey
With his high-pitched melodicism and slick way with words, Ralo is one of the most respected young emcees in the Atlanta scene. Gearing up for another collection of emotionally honest trap tales, Ralo announces Famerica Presents: Plugged In With the Cartel, his upcoming mixtape alongside tour DJ, DJ Kutt Throat. Ralo stands out among emcees for his unique conscience and sense of morality that imbues each track, inspired by his devotion to his family and his Muslim faith. Featuring appearances from Lil Baby, Money Man, and others, Plugged In With the Cartel is Ralo’s first project since Ralo LaFlare, his summer project hosted by Gucci Mane. Presented by Ralo’s own Famerica imprint and distributed by EMPIRE, Plugged In With the Cartel arrives on November 24th.
Born and raised in The Bluff, a notoriously dangerous neighborhood in West Atlanta recently featured in the film Snow On the Bluff, Ralo (neé Terrell Davis) provided for his family at a young age, selling CDs and DVDs on the streets while honing his rap skills. Unfortunately, his youthful indiscretions caused him to spend much of his young life in and out of jail. After emerging from prison for the final time in 2015, Ralo found Islam, and he dedicated his life to making the streets a safer place through his music. In 2017, Ralo teamed up with Gucci Mane to release Ralo LaFlare, which featured appearances from heavy-hitters like Young Thug, Young Dolph, Lil Durk, Fetty Wap, OJ Da Juiceman, Sean Garrett, and production from Cassius Jay, Super Mario, Honorable C-Note, Wheezy, and more. With his unique mic presence, his undeniable talent, and the respect of the best and brightest in the ATL scene, Ralo’s star will only continue to rise with his upcoming projects.
Today, Ralo shares “On My Kids (Outro),” an emotional and boastful new single. Produced by Twysted Genius, who crafts a plaintive, longing piano-led instrumental, “On My Kids” is a series of confessions, with Ralo ruminating on his faith, his friends stuck in prison, and his prodigious money-getting abilities. In the video, Ralo gives a glimpse into his home life, rapping from a bench swing in his yard, showing off his jewels, and even relaxing in his bathtub. Premiered by Vibe, “On My Kids” is the latest release from Plugged In With the Cartel, following the fun, Lil Baby-featuring “Lil Cali & Pakistan,” released last week.

Ralo’s’ music is a combination of ingenuity and power. He has worked with acts such as Gucci Mane, Future, Shawty Lo, Young Thug, Lil Uzi Vert, 21 Savage, Lil Yachty, Jefé (Shy Glizzy), and Young Scooter. This experience has given Ralo the opportunity to prove to his fans that he has what it takes to surpass some of the more popular mainstream and independent artists out today. His most recent project, Famerican Gangster 2, a follow up to 2016’s accomplished Diary of the Streets II, came out on February 12th.

After gaining notoriety in the Atlanta trap scene working with artists such as Future and Young Scooter, Ralo founded #Famerican, a music movement and community foundation under his direction. Signed to Gucci Mane’s 1017 Eskimo Records, Ralo Laflare represents a more empathetic take on trap music, balancing street tales with a deep sense of morality.
