Our man Scotty ATL came by the AB+L studios the other day to talk independently run grassroots movements as it relates to his Cool Club collective. Both Reese and I have peeped the Decatur native’s grind since the beginning — his Summer Dreams project with DJ Burn One started it all.
With everyone outchea claiming to have a rap career, they could stand to learn a few lessons from this newcomer in particular. From passing out hard copies at the hood gas stations to making it to Complex — repeatedly — it appears the boy Scotty has the formula. Real sh*t (reference ‘What’s the Formula?’ on his new Scion-sponsored EP ‘On the Road to Spaghetti Junction’).
Mixes by our own DJ Wally Sparks of course. And later, I sit with Huntsville native Translee for the Mad Fresh 5. He gives up his own formula behind his latest tape Culture Junky and a couple things you ought to know ’bout ’em.
