Some crazy news out of Atlanta, GA this morning. ATL hip hop veteran Bankroll Fresh was pointlessly shot and killed last night while in Atlanta at Street Execs Studio(2 Chainz, Cap 1, Young Dolph). No word yet on a suspect, or possible motives, but damn man this is such a crazy time already in this country with people getting laid out in the streets. Why do we do this to each other? I hate to get up on the old soap box, it’s just crazy to hear about yet ANOTHER young talented artist cut down way to damn soon. Be safe out there everyone, people don’t respect others dreams anymore. Keep some prayers and good vibes for Bankrolls family & friends.

From the makers of Noisey Chiraq, a new 10-part series documenting unprecedented access into the Atlanta rap scene. Hosted by Vice / HBO / Noisey’s Thomas Morton and directed by Andy Capper, the series stars artists like 2 Chainz, Gucci Mane, Migos, Rich Homie Quan, Young Thug, Jeezy, upcoming stars like the Grammy-nominated iLoveMakonnen, and also spends time with the new wave of super-producers like Mike Will Made-It (Miley Cyrus), Metro Boomin, and 808 Mafia.
The series goes behind the songs and into the trap houses, neighborhoods, problems, and solutions that have inspired the wheelhouse behind one of America’s most vibrant and influential music scenes. Also featuring appearances by the Atlanta Police Department, gang members, the ATL Twins and Curtis Snow (Snow On Da Bluff), we attempt to illustrate the complex and vibrant rap scene and what that culture means to the city.
Part 1 drops January 13th.

I have to say most recently I’ve been a big fan of records. Not singles but records. You know. The meat and potatoes of a project. The songs that reverberate throughout the soul and really make you feel something. It could be from any genre or any artist. Nowadays plenty of artists try to push their project with subpar records that fail to captivate an audience. I can’t say that about Atlanta artist, Bankroll Fresh’s song “Hot Boy”. Inspired by the Hot Boys of Cash Money Records I can feel the humidity of the projects in the summertime just listening to this joint.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8kNWkAcMBw&w=560&h=315]
The beat produced by Cassius Jay does really hit like an old Mannie Fresh beat. Fresh gives the perspective of a day in the life of a Hot Boy which includes all the trappings of street life but weaves it with inspiration from New Orleans rappers and lingo such as Whodie, Soulja Slim, and Chopper City. The video really brings the song to life fit with Hummers, bandanas, and the projects as the backdrop to it all. Bankroll Fresh’s mixtape, Life Of A Hot Boy is out now and its fire. You been warned.
