It all started in January 2019 when I first decided to start Atlanta city records at the time, I had already been managing two artists by the name of baby D and LMM Cooley. Knowing all the knowledge that I knew at the time about the music about the industry, I didn’t feel as if I knew enough so I wanted to learn more and I wanted to be more professional about it, so that people would take me more serious. So, I started an independent record label and it just took off from there as I started to work with more artist as far as management. I got told the word no several times. I didn’t have enough leverage to do the things that I wanted to do for my artist for my business. So, instead of working with people that hate the things that I need it, I started my own things pushed my own brand pushed my own artist and built that way. During my journey with Atlanta city records and building my own brand, I came across an A&R for Sony/Alamo Records by the name of Woobi the CEO Direct Management. Which we came in to partnership somehow and he helped me grow my brand and made me a manager and then a vice president of his company.
R&B is entering a resurgence as the Trap/Soul popularized by modern artists blends with the merging of the old. Atlanta's artist AsiaMarie grew up with icons like Monica and came from a musical household where she was able to fall in love with singing from her mother. Writing song lyrics was viewed as a therapy session with each lyric releasing all the feelings and emotions she kept inside from unrequited love and failed relationships. Growing up she began to take music serious and picked up a lot on Atlanta trap influences through the hip-hop scene. Fusing these styles, the twenty-three-year-old is set to release her latest record, Not Enough and broadcast her stunning vocals off to the world. Along the way, her only hope is to heal and inspire those with similar experiences.
While Atlanta has built up a reputation as one of the tastemaker cities in hip hop over the past decade, it is important to remember how dedicated and blessed the young emcees to rise out of this town are. Flame Got cherishes this fact everyday, as the twenty-seven-year-old artist lost his older brother to gun violence when he was younger. A rapper himself, his brother served as a huge inspiration for him to follow in his footsteps musically, while never losing touch with the place he calls home. All of these ups and downs have built Gotti up into one phenomenal artist that will soon make his brother and city proud.
YungFrost is one of Atlanta's special talents. Growing up in the infamous Clayton Country area, the southern emcee was extremely dedicated to sports when he was younger, pursuing baseball while in high-school. When his coach ordered him to get a haircut to play, he was dubbed Frosty, a moniker he would use when he eventually found his way into hip-hop. While he does draw off an obvious handful of Atlanta artists inspiration, there is a quality to his sound that makes it unique to him. His voice is his own instrument that glides across any instrumental he takes a liking to. His talent has led him to success, with his debut single "How I Live", Lansing him an interview with the esteemed Streetz 94.5 radio station. As his journey continues, YungFrost is excited to share his story and rise out of the south side of Clayco as one of the hottest names in hip-hop.
