There's no reason why Atlanta shouldn't be a hotspot for the rap world. The amount of great talent coming from the capital proves that the region has something fantastic to offer the world. From acts like Outkast and the long forgotten but always appreciated Yung Joc, to contemporary influencers like 2 Chainz and Rae Sremmurd, there's no stopping these guys from dominating the music game. And while Michael Aristotle might be another ATLien on the scene, don't count him out as being another rhymer. He's quickly becoming one of my favourite artists as of late. I loved his video for "Mil.Yon.Air" (you can check out that post here) and a number of tracks from last year's What Tomorrow May Hold.
If you're looking for a track to sit back, relax and vibe out, Aristotle has got you once again. "Blue" comes through with the perfect combination of rough, rapid flowing bars and subdued beats as the rapper speaks on the struggles of being involved in a convoluted relationship. Visually, the video's decision to go all blue works well with the shots presented and the overall theme of the track. Michael Aristotle's upcoming project, Thanks For Nothing, is set for a March 11th drop, so get behind the guy before the album drops.
