Video: Young Scooter – “Plug Lingo”
The Black Migo Gang Boss Earns His PhD in Slangin’ in the Video for the Trippple Cross Highlight
“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
With an authoritative mic presence and a talent for delivering compelling street stories, ATL’s Young Scooter is one of the most respected trap stars in the scene. Holing up in a lab with a white-coated scientist, Scooter attempts to perfect his formula on “Plug Lingo.” The video provides a humorous take on a Breaking Bad scenario, with Scooter educating the scientist and a glassful of beautiful women on the ways of the streets on the mission to create the perfect brick. Released over the weekend, “Plug Lingo” is a highlight from Trippple Cross, Scooter’s latest project. “Plug Lingo” is the third focus track from the new project, following the Complex-premiered “Bail Out,” which features a verse from YoungBoy Never Broke Again, and the titanic, trunk-rattling title track, which was premiered by Billboard.
With multiple guest appearances from ATL innovators Young Thug and Future, whose hyper-melodic flights of fancy mesh perfectly with Scooter’s earth-shaking baritone, Trippple Cross is packed with braggadocios boasts, slick punchlines, and heartfelt accounts of Scooter’s legal tribulations. Though the record’s subject matter can grow heavy, Scooter never loses his cool, creating hooks with a wry grin and rhythmic invention. Featuring appearances from Young Thug, Future, Youngboy Never Broke Again, Casino, and VL Deck, the EMPIRE-distributed Trippple Cross shows the skills that earned Scooter the respect of the biggest rappers in the game and demonstrates that he deserves to be mentioned among the best in his city.

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.
