ATL Kingpin Ralo Announces His Return with the Star-Studded Diary of the Streets 3, Coming February 9th
The Influential Street Figure Recruits Young Dolph and Trouble for the Menacing “Die Real,” Premiered by Complex
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
Imbuing melodic street stories with uncommon pathos, ATL emcee Ralo commands respect with his street stature and rhymes. Raising the bar with a collection of 16 impossibly hard trap bangers, Ralo announces Diary of the Streets 3, his upcoming project. The follow-up to Diary of the Streets and Diary of the Streets 2, each of which considerably raised Ralo’s national profile, Diary of the Streets 3 is an empathetic and thoughtful piece of work that paints a detailed picture of Ralo’s life as a kingpin, a devout Muslim, and a father. Growing as a rhymer under the tutelage of Gucci Mane, the project is a lyrical level-up for the young emcee, reveling in slice-of-life autobiographical details, boisterous flexes, and unique punchlines. Featuring appearances from Gucci Mane, Young Thug, Young Dolph, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Boosie Badazz, YFN Lucci, Hoodrich Pablo Juan, Trouble, Lil Baby, Philthy Rich, Key Glock, Jay Fizzle, and more, and with production from the likes of Zaytoven, Cassius Jay, and Twysted Genius, among others, Diary of the Streets 3 arrives on February 9th.
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, and production from Cassius Jay, Super Mario, Honorable C-Note, Wheezy, and more. In November, Ralo teamed up with DJ Kutt Throat to release Plugged In With The Cartel, which featured appearances from Young Thug, DJ Luke Nasty, Lil Baby, Young Greatness, Casino, Lotto Savage, Sy Ari Da Kid, and others. 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 Diary of the Streets 3.
To accompany the album’s release, Ralo shares “Die Real,” a menacing trap anthem. Ralo is joined on the track by Atlanta’s street prince Trouble and Memphis’s rap titan Young Dolph whose gravelly tones and witty punchlines juxtapose perfectly with Ralo’s distinct tone. Premiered by Complex, “Die Real” sets the tone for the what’s to come on Diary of the Streets 3.
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.
