T-Raw (@dastategreat) is back with a follow-up to his standout single “Get It”. This time around the College Hill Music Group signee brings in “Umma Do Me” rapper, Rocko Da Don. Do not be fooled, T-Raw was not just sitting back and waiting to release this record, his passion for music and overly active personality allowed him to take his talents on the road and create a bigger fan base via his travels, T-Raw states “I don’t want to be another internet artist, I want fans in these streets…rocking the stage, shaking hands, and signing autographs is what I enjoy the most.”
T-Raw is also a perfectionist with everything he does and wanted to wait until everything was perfect to release “Let’s Talk Cash”. He brought in the super-hot Atlanta based production team Beat Attikz and the feature from artist Rocko took it over the top. This track shows growth not only with the artist himself, but in the overall sound he wants to showcase to the world. T-Raw drops his verse flawlessly, while Rocko compliments and completes the track, rounded out with hard-pounding bass, which is well-known to the south, this trio of artists and production brought Tampa and Atlanta together like never before.

New Orleans based rapper Maxx Painn (@Maxx_Painn9), was born Maximillion Jackson, son of single mother Jo Ann Jackson. Maxx grew up in the rough streets of the lower 9th ward, infamously known as Cross the Canal. Like many others from Maxx’s neighborhood, he comes from a single parent home. His father, whom he never met, was murdered before Maxx was born. Even with life’s mishaps, Maxx still managed to live seemingly normal childhood.
Early in life, Maxx became a huge fan of rap music. He found his inspiration from rappers such as, New Orleans based rap group The Hot Boys, Soulja Slim, Young Jeezy and several others. It was then that Max knew that rapping would become a passion for him; a way to get him through troubling times.
Tragedy later struck MaxP when he was wrongfully incarcerated in August 2011. Maxx was then escorted to Orleans Parish Prison, notoriously known for housing some of New Orleans’ most dangerous criminals, its drug use as well as weapons in the possession of the inmates. While serving a 13 month sentence in Orleans Parish Prison, Maxx sat in cell everyday writing music and thinking about life to pass the time.
Maxx had a conversation with his older brother who told him, “You have a gift from God that you can use to get your family out of the hood.” With those encouraging words, Maxx was determined to take the music world by storm. After receiving a positive feedback from people all over the city, he felt that it was a sign to keep moving forward. Now at the age of 23, which isn’t exactly old but when you’re growing up in the streets of New Orleans where most people don’t live to see 21, it’s both a blessing and privilege to make it this far.
Maxx believes that true artists have the ability to let the fans know who they really are through the music. His message is simple to fans & critics alike, “If you ain’t rockin with MaxxP, you gotta be hating.” Teaming up with the streets A&R Maxx is bringing you all his latest mixtape effort titled “The Marquis Larue Story”…listen, download, and support.
Columbia BT (@ColumbiaBT) is back with a follow-up to the hugely successful “She Crazie”. This time around he brings in Zilla Super for “#NoChill”…which means turned up to the max.
Maurice Lanier (born Maurice Andre Murphy on July 16, 1982) is a singer, songwriter, and arranger based in Washington, D.C. His eclectic influence on music is just as diverse as his culturally-diverse background. Due to his parents’ honorable service in the United States Air Force, Lanier was naturally inclined to adapt to several different cultures over his life as he moved around the globe from his childhood all the way into his early adulthood. Born on Keesler Air Force Base, Mississippi, Lanier was raised moving around the United States and Europe including various cities in New York, Georgia, Massachusetts, Texas, Germany, and later moved to Washington, D.C. to join his mother and reunite with their family who are natives of the D.C. Metropolitan Area.
Maurice Lanier treasures the gifts and influences of Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Stevie Wonder, Joe Cocker, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Michael Jackson, Fred Astaire, Nat King Cole, Donny Hathaway, Gloria Estefan, Celine Dion, Chuck Mangione, The Gap Band, Bilal Oliver, Lauryn Hill, and Kim Burrell as a major part of his musical savvy. His late grandmother, Mary Murphy, was the matriarch of their family and hailed as a distinguishably skilled poet, author, and songwriter of her time. She was known by the family to have submitted a song to a Motown producer in the 1960’s, and to have heard the song she wrote on the radio. Lanier carries on her legacy of soul, spirituality, freedom, justice, poetry, music, and laughter into this era of contemporary sounds. Lanier’s life experiences www.officialmrlanier.com
A lot of guys rap about putting their “homies” on from the hood, but I can truly say that my FAM ATL & Freeband Gang’s own Maceo (@MaceoWorld) is working hard at making sure his ENTIRE hood shines. From the dope hole & 44 Paradise which is also hippy/urban + 2blocks from the precinct is now one of the most talked about areas of Atlanta. Seasoning artists like Future, Scooter, Gucci, Slick Pulla, 550 & more Kirkwood aka Lil Mexico is definitely a place to be on display in the music scene. Maceo is one of those highly respected artists who are able and willing to do so with his affiliation to FREEBANDZ and CEO of his own 94 ENTERTAINMENT. With this second volume to “Welcome to Mexico City”, he does just that, adding many more from the hood like Mexico Rann, Young Scooter + more raw & different talent with our own lingo spread throughout the Mixtape. Enjoy the video shot in lil Mexico & download Mixtape below!

WINCHESTER, VIRGINIA—Since the third grade, 20-year-old Omar Beal has been perfecting his craft, hoping to one day join the ranks of his rap icons like Meek Mill, Eminem and J.Cole.
“When I was in elementary school, we had to do a survey that asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up. Most people picked normal jobs. I picked rapper,” laughed Beal. “Ever since then, that’s what I’ve wanted to do, and I’ve been actively pursuing it.”
Originally from Patterson, New Jersey, Beal moved to Winchester, Virginia with his mom in 2008 for a better life—a move he doesn’t regret one bit.
“Where I’m from people die every other two weeks to be honest with you,” stated Beal. “My mom and I were poor. We lived with my grandmother. She then got a job at Ford Motor Company in Virginia making more than twice the amount of money she was making back home. It’s just better down here.”
It’s his past, however, that has served as the inspiration for many of his lyrics—including on his debut EP.
“Most rappers rap about money, girls and fancy clothes,” stated Beal. “I rap about my struggles and how my mom and I are living better today.”
Countless hours and hard work went into producing his first major project, but in the end he believes fans of hip hop music will be pleasantly surprised with the outcome.
“I describe my sound as ‘hype music’ and very energetic,” stated Beal. “I put about 12 hours into my music every other day. I hope when people hear my music, they can’t wait to hear more. I don’t want to be a one-hit-wonder.”

About A-1 Super Group
Atlanta’s A-1 Super Group has been Atlanta’s go-to “Turn up” duo since they hit the turn up scene in 2013 with “Everywhere We Go.” The founding members JT and G (formerly Lil G) formed A-1 Super Group in 2009 and released their first mixtape the following year. Coming out the Marietta area, the group hit on Atlanta’s Northside first, but with an over the top live show and packed New Year’s Eve parties, they were downtown ATL favorites by 2013. That same year, the duo released the single “Everywhere We Go,” an instant summer club hit in their hometown. The A1T$G mixtape also arrived in 2013, while the summer of 2014 found “Everywhere We Go” released on a national level, this time with K Camp added to the remix. Now they are looking to continue the wave with the release of their new single, “Who I think I am” in anticipation to their upcoming sophomore mixtape. ATL: A Turnt Lituation has a scheduled release date of April 16th, 2015.
