The Niceguys - Ari Gold (Remix) feat. Bun B [Music Video]

Houston based quartet The Niceguys has proven to be quite the force on the underground scene with their ability to rap without being constrained by a genre.  Since the "Ari Gold Remix" featuring UGK legend Bun B dropped last month, they've been making serious strides on a mainstream level.  Now Easy Yves Saint, DJ Candlestick, Christolph and Free have let loose of an equally trippy set of visuals to match the vibe of the song.

Uh Oh! Looks like Pill's Unhappy At Maybach Music Group!

Uh oh...looks like someone's unhappy over at MMG. I figured with all its star power, someone would emerge with some not so positive words about their rank on the label's priorities.  Atlanta rapper Pill let the tweets fly earlier today about his frustrations:

Mal - Never [Prod. Scoot Beatz]

"I'm seasoned. I spring forward, I watch y'all fall back..."
I'm usually all about being humble, but sometimes you've gotta be a little cocky and pat yourself on the back to keep your morale up.  After being laid off from work, ATL based rapper Mal needed to let off some steam and stay motivated, so he got the track from Scoot Beatz and went after it.
I believe that "Never" represents a class of people who are working towards a goal and feels confident about what they are doing. If you are not confident in yourself, then it is hard for others to have confidence in you.
Check out the track below, and make sure you check out his freestyle at the A3C Festival earlier this year!

Ashley Nicole - Pull The Plug

Since I've already got you in an R&B mood with the last two posts, I think it's the perfect time to introduce you to Atlanta singer-songwriter Ashley Nicole. If you're trying to recall where you've seen her from, you may have seen her performing on BET in '09 as part of Tiny & Toya's now disbanded group.

After being mentored by stars like Tiny (of Xscape), Ne-Yo and Usher, the songstress is ready to take the music world by storm as a solo artist.  Check out the Boogie Wizzard penned and produced ballad "Pull The Plug" that captures the vulnerability one feels when making the decision to let go and end a relationship.
