Album: Ralo – Diary of the Streets II

Ralo Drops Project About Coming From The Streets, Releases Preview For “Wish Me The Best” Video


The Project:

Few rappers can claim that they have as much street-cred as Atlanta’s Ralo. He started hustling at the age of 13, selling CDs and DVDs, and he hasn’t looked back, eventually becoming a fixture of the Atlanta streets. Always interested in music, Ralo wrote and rapped even when he was hustling. Once he turned his focus onto music however, his career took off quickly. Working with some of the biggest artists in Atlanta, including Future, Young Thug, and Young Scooter, Ralo quickly became a fixture in the Southeast’s rap scene. Premiered last night by FADERDiary of the Streets II, the sequel to last year’s popular Diary of the Streets, is the next step in Ralo’s ascension to stardom. The project, now available for purchase, delivers on what we have come to expect from Ralo, trap bangers with a strong melodic element and personal and introspective lyrics. Featuring guest appearances from Future, Young Thug, Lil Uzi Vert, 21 Savage, Shy Glizzy and Birdman, who hosts the project, and with production fromSouthside, DJ Plugg, and Wheezy, Diary of the Streets II is a monument to Ralo’s stature on the streets.

Ralo brings the always-be-working, never-be-resting mindset of hustling to music, so it should come as no surprise that he wasn’t content with just dropping a project. He also released a preview of the music video for “Wish Me the Best,” from Diary of Streets II, that features fellow Atlantan YFN Lucci and cameos from Future and Birdman. Featuring black and white footage of Ralo performing, recording, and whipping a foreign the two trappers trade verses celebrating their success against the odds, tantalizingly teasing what’s to come.

This release is the culmination of a busy summer for Ralo. Last week he released a video for “Letter To Birdman,” a tribute to one of his mentors and role models which premiered on XXL. This came a week after Noisey premiered Ralo’s Future-featuring, Southside-produced banger “My Brothers,” alongside a Q&A. Noisey also premiered the Shy Glizzy-featuring “Dear Your Honor,” Ralo’s heartfelt plea for a fairer criminal justice system. Earlier, Ralo recruited three of America’s hottest rappers for the Complex-premiered DOTS II single Flexing on Purpose,a monstrous, lurching turn-up banger featuring Lil Uzi VertYoung Thug, and 21 Savage. Though that level of star power would dwarf a lesser artist, Ralo rises to the occasion, shining with his trademark charisma. Diary of the Streets II is a unique approach to the Atlanta sound, elevated by Ralo’s depth of feeling and force of personality. “I’m not just rapping for exposure,” explains Ralo. “I want to bring people together. I want to have a good influence on the community; I want people to stop fighting each other.”
