Looks like everybody's got love for Bun B right now... "Trill" #1 on Billboard... nice work
Heard some big news/rumours from the weekend... DSR has signed to Universal for a cool 7 mill
and Swishahouse has signed Lil Keke !!!
Is it true ??? DJ Screw must be spinnin in the grave !!!
I'm interested in hearing how this turns out... The dude has been way overexposed lately, everytime I hear another wack sippin' purple drank/ridin' candy paint guest verse I just tune out... But I got high hopes that Trill will bring back the goods.
The spark right now is coming from the kids of ATL.
Check Maceo's "Sit Down" & "Nextel Chirp", D4L's "Laffy Taffy", BMF, Mac Bre-Z & GA Girls.
Noah's Destiny's Child rerub "Decatur 2 U" is fuckin hilarious.
Also Alabama's 334 Mobb, recently signed to Def Jam.
DJ Smallz's Southern Smoke mixtapes are a great place to start and will lead you to lots of new Southern artists. They include all the hot tracks, although I haven't heard the latest ones (a new one seems pop up every few weeks).
Volumes 8 and 10 are the best.
