ATL Heavyweight Young Scooter Announces Trippple Cross, Releasing on February 23rd
The Black Migo Gang Chieftain Shares the Project’s Title Track, With Appearances From Young Thug & Future, Premiered by Billboard
“He floats at the beat, rather than locking into the pocket, as if he were only somewhat concerned with the rhythm. His verses are more compelling for this style, and it makes conventional rappers seem a bit stiff and square in comparison.” – Complex
“For those who miss the rougher edges that made trap music blow up in the first place, Jugg King is a welcome reminder of the genre’s range.” – Noisey
A hard-working heavyweight and one of the most respected rappers in Atlanta, Young Scooter stuns with slick street stories. Returning with a thrice-distilled dollop of unadulterated trap, Scooter announces Trippple Cross, his upcoming album. The follow-up to 2017’s Juug King mixtape, Trippple Cross features multiple guest appearances from ATL innovators Young Thug and Future, whose hyper-melodic flights of fancy mesh perfectly with Scooter’s earth-shaking baritone. With production from some of the South’s best producers and featuring appearances from Thug, Future, Youngboy Never Broke Again, Casino, and VL Deck, Trippple Cross is a trap event album, re-establishing Scooter as one of the scene’s major players.
To accompany the announcement of the mixtape, Scooter shares “Trippple Cross,” a titanic trunk-rattler from the upcoming tape. With an inventive, helium-voiced hook from Young Thug and a typically charismatic and hypnotic guest verse from Future, the song finds Scooter in flex mode, casually counting his cash and touting his street credentials. Premiered by Billboard, “Trippple Cross” is a potent preview of the alchemy the pervades the Trippple Cross project, with the three emcees blending their conflicting styles over an evil organ-and-synth production from Chophouze On The Track. Released by Scooter’s own Black Migo Gang imprint and distributed by EMPIRE, Trippple Cross arrives on February 23rd.

Trippple Cross tracklist:
EMPIRE was founded in 2010 as an artist-friendly, progressive digital distribution company. After early success, and identifying future icons such as Kendrick Lamar, Sage The Gemini, and Rich Homie Quan, EMPIRE was quickly regarded as a tastemaker in the industry and throughout the past five years evolved into a full-fledged record label, distributor and publisher for independent musicians. With the company and roster growing at a breakneck pace, EMPIRE has effectively disrupted a stale business model by bringing its energy, expertise, and acumen to its artists and labels. Given its reputation, EMPIRE works with today’s hottest talent from superstars such as T.I. and red-hot newcomers such as Anderson .Paak. While remaining 100% independent, EMPIRE has also partnered with Atlantic Records for a joint venture, home to breakout star D.R.A.M.and joined forces with Republic Records for the release of Sage The Gemini’s Remember Me album.
