ATL Rapper Strats Preps “November Vol 2”

ATL — the cultural hub that it is — is home base for rapper Strats, who has appeared here on AAHH in the past with his single “No Options.” The young MC, who was born in North Carolina, began making music at the age of 10 watching his older brother. “I almost gave up on my dream, but my Late father pastor David Harris convinced me otherwise,” he tells AAHH. “I grew up on the streets of Atlanta (Bolton Rd) and got into a lot of shit, robbing, selling drugs, [and shit like that].”

 
It took for the young rapper to get locked up at infamous Rice Street — better known as the Fulton County Jail — before he decided to try and change my life, pursuing music full time. Now four projects deep — including his most recent double-installment EP, “Until I Die” and “Full of Life.” He’s currently working on the sequel to his super November project, which was made in honor of my late father who died in November 2012. “My biggest achievement? I don’t have any,” he says humbly. “I made it past 21. I guess.”

“I intend to speak my mind and talk to streets,” he says, “with no fear of how I feel.”

Tau Makes Amends on New Single “Indecisive”

If Ye has taught us anything with his latest rant its that holding onto things that don’t sit right on your soul can bubble over. This is partly the mantra behind Baton Rouge rapper Tau’s latest single “Indecisive,” featuring OGI.Ejay. Over the bouncy piano bop, Tau makes amends with a former flame, despite his past transgressions aiding the relationship’s dissolution.

 
Tau has been dropping some admirably dope music in 2018 — which includes six singles and 2 EPs — that is more than worth a spin. With the kind of hit potential this kid has, it’s more a matter of when than if.

Check out Tau’s’s “Indecisive” below.

Krewz Links With YBN’s Migo Domingo For Blazing New Single

Straight out of scenic Vancouver BC, self-produced/engineered artist Krewz is on the verge of taking his career to the new plateau. With a new mixtape dropping the top of 2019, and a tour being planned as we speak, he’s taking the success he’s seen thus far and pumping up the notoriety. 

“I started by buying my own equipment, and learning most of my skills online,” he tells AAHH from his studio in BC. “I started rapping with friends … and [from there] just worked on developing my craft. Back when I first started, I had a set up in my basement, and I was locked in the studio 24/7.”

As he denotes, that experience helped him realize this was the path he was meant to take — and not just as a hobby, but a full-blown lifestyle.

“I want my mixtape to open up new avenues for potential features with other artists,” he says, switching gears and looking ahead to 2019. With his first single from the project, “Adapt,” an anthem for anyone on the heavy grind regardless of the circumstances, he’s setting the tone in a heavy way.

“I’m like an alien, yeah I adapt,” he says on the chorus, emphasizing the malleable nature of his money mission. The self-produced radio-ready banger features YBN’s own Migo Domingo, who is coming off of a huge summer mixtape release that featured his single “Dog Her” alongside his labelmate and childhood friend Offset.

It’s a lateral movement if you’ve been following his movements over the past year, as he’s been dropping a heap of bubbling singles via his SoundCloud account. Songs like “No Time,” which wound up on World Star, have been helping him click, setting the stage for this new project.

It’s a good look associating his brand with YBN — after a few spins, with it’s super catchy instrumental — we’re sure you’ll agree worth a spot on whatever playlist you have access to.

25-year-old military vet Pipe — representing Alexandria, Lousiana — is on a mission to be great. “I’m still currently in the learning process of becoming great but just wait I ain’t lying,” he tells AAHH. Though he’s on the verge of dropping his debut, don’t think that his music is in anyway beginner.

“This is me the EP is my very first project so I’m super excited for the world to hear it,” he says. “As the title says, it’s me.” Not unlike a title like Reasonable Doubt, which Hov famously denoted took his whole life up to that point to create, the seven-song project is set to fully introduce the world to his story.

As he explains to us, his biggest influence getting into the game was none other than Lil Wayne; “I’m from Louisiana so of course my biggest influence is lil Wayne and what Young Money was when the album dropped.

“I would love to work with Weezy, Dj Khaled, Drake, 88 Glam, Travis Scott, Chris Brown, Big Sean … the list goes on,” he reveals when discussing career aspirations with our staff.

For now, we’ll get our first taste of what his collective vision is on January 4 when the EP drops. In the meantime, he has some hearty appetizers in his Soundcloud that give you an idea of the potential he has. Check out one of our faves, “iRun,” below.

Gen Drops A New Single From His “Y15946” EP

Often it can take an artist hitting a low point in order to turn their lives around for the better. This is definitely the case for Chicago MC Gen. the 19-year-old is riding high following the release of his debut EP Y15946 — a title that references his prisoner number.

Following his release from prison, after a 19-month sentence in Illinois for possession of a firearm, his life has taken a pivot towards a brighter path, and his EP is an embodiment of this sentiment — a true celebration of life. His latest single “vLONE” is a combination of a raspy chorus, that bookends rapid-fire verses, that ride the bass-fueled instrumental by OG Webbie. The chorus is hella catchy; the end of the song when the beat drops out, you can hear his chains clanking as he repeats it one final time.

Check out Gen’s “vLONE,” below.
