New Video: The ANThem – DANG!
I am The ANThem! From the eastside of Atlanta, GA!! Zone 6!!
So, I grew up with music like most, listening to the old school tunes that my kinfolk used to listen to.
Sam Cooke, The Temptations, Marvin Gaye, The O’Jays, The Manhattans, Curtis Mayfield…You
knew if you heard that in the mornings on the weekend it was time to clean the house! Lol!! The first rap album i listened to was Southernplayalisticcadillacmuzik by Outkast and i knew then this is what i HAVE to do with my life! I wanted to rhyme like Outkast and Goodie Mob and make beats like The Dungeon Family!! I been making beats almost 10 years and been rhyming seriously for about 3!! Those old southern vibes are what i want to bring back to hiphop! Trap music with lessons…gangster songs with soul! Hopefully through my beats or my raps people will hear what I’m trying to do and realize there is more than one level to Trap music!!
Cotton Fields is my 2nd underground album! I’m from the south and not just the Atlanta, Georgia south i’m talking about the back water/dirt road south! The moonshine and pecan tree south!! Down there it is still very evident what my ancestors went through during slavery because Cotton Fields are still everywhere and most of the places are ghost towns from a time thats long past!! So i wanted to pay homage to that, it shouldn’t be forgotten! The album Cotton Fields is filled cautionary tales, street lessons and generally somethings to think about in society and ALL of that over thumping trap instrumentals! This is trap with some game added in, this is gangster music with a soul…this is Cotton Fields!!
