09.20.2013

Critical Praise for Scotty ATL:

“Scotty ATL has been consistently dropping solid music for quite some time now, and it doesn’t look like he’s planning to stop anytime soon.” – Complex

“Scotty ATL is the ultimate blue-collar rapper that you don’t have to try and relate to—it just comes natural.” – Mass Appeal

The Song:

Though rap songs can often depict a glamorous life, Scotty ATL understands that a life in the hood often leads to difficult losses. The latest single from Scotty’s upcoming Daily Bread album, “Bye Bye” explores the human toll of the hustle. Enlisting Ty Dolla $ign for some sweetly-sung farewells, Scotty reminisces about some of his lost friends, including the late Atlanta rapper Bankroll Fresh, regretting that he often did not have the chance to say goodbye in person. Premiered today by FADER, “Bye Bye” is a touching trap ballad, made even more affecting by its specificity: “We was comin’ up, you had blowed up/Vibe Mag 2016 together/FaceTime you was lit as fuck/Didn’t get to say bye to you, dog..wish you could see how they fuck with you.”

Hitting stores September 21stDaily Bread is an album rooted in tragedy and triumph. Explains Scotty ATL, “In March my close homie lost his stepmom–stabbed to death by his little brother who is now in jail for life. They lived down the street from me, I’ve known them for over ten years. They are like family to me. Another one of the people I lost committed suicide. I was on the way to give him tickets to my show, within 15 minutes he was dead. When I got there, that was my first time seeing anyone dead. Bankroll Fresh and I were working on a CD together when he died. The fourth one is a friend from Chicago. He was coming to ATL, aspiring to be a rapper.”

Daily Bread is informed by tragedy, but it does not dwell on it, focusing instead on Scotty’s personal growth and lessons learned. With features from Ty Dolla $ignJaydot Rain, and Kissie Lee, and production from DJ Burn OneKE On the Track, JayeLL, and Cory Mo, among others, Scotty describes the album as “my version of Tupac’s ‘Keep Ya Head Up’ or UGK’s Ridin’ Dirty or Outkast’sSouthernplayalisticadillacmuzik.” A rapper, producer, record label owner, and entrepreneur, Daily Breadis the result of a career’s worth of grinding, and it stands as one of the rapper’s most accomplished efforts.

Scotty ATL Background:

Everything about Scotty ATL is definitively southern. From the way he positions his ‘A’ hat atop his head down to the flip-flop and socks on his feet, he’s an authentic offspring of the culture that has raised him. Hailing from the city’s eastside, Scotty ATL is the funk and soul of Outkast mixed with the political and social-consciousness of Goodie Mob, but from a perspective all his own. An utterly independent spirit with a distinct drawl and vernacular, his name embodies his persona. Scotty ATL is all things Atlanta, yet his movement is worldwide, which is neither by coincidence nor chance.

A hustler since the womb, Scotty ATL formed his own label Cool Club, an ode to his style and attitude upon entering the business of entertainment. The street-smart rapper then began effectively building his brick-by-brick campaign putting in countless hours and money to expand his presence. As a result, he released a succession of popular mixtapes starting with the debut of 2011’s Summer Dreams hosted by DJ Burn One, which ignited a cult-like following. He released other successful projects such as In The Meantime, The Jiffy Cornbread Experience, F.A.I.T.H (Forever Atlanta In The Heart), In The Meantime 2 and SPAGHETTI Junction, all of which spawned notable singles. In 2014, he joined forces with Grammy-nominated artist B.o.B’s No Genre imprint and embarked on a nation-wide tour billed the Cool Club Tour. The following year he was featured on the remix to Curren$y’sCloud IX” and followed that up with the instant classic The Cooligan, a 16-track composition hosted by DJ Scream and DJ Mike Mars. The pivotal mixtape featured collaborations with Curren$y, CyHi The Prynce, 8Ball, Devin The Dude, and B.O.B, with production credits going to KE On The Track, DJ Burn One, and Drumma Boy.
