With 60 hit songs under his belt and two Grammy trophies on his mantle, T-Pain has cemented himself as one of the most influential artists of all time. Currently preparing for his fifth album, Stoicville: The Phoenix, T-Pain promises that he’s back to being the artist that he originally intended to be. “I want to be able to say that I put out an album that I believed in and that I liked,” he says. “Every song on the album is something that came out of my heart.”
Born on the tiny Caribbean Island of Dominica and raised on the Eastside of Atlanta, 21 Savage, comes from a background of poverty, struggle, crime, and violence. This pain and anger come across as a clear message in his music, do not mess with me or my people.
Starting with his debut mixtape The Slaughter Tape, 21 has developed a sound that is somewhere between Atlanta's Trap and Chicago's Drill as a hyper violent, hyper real view of the Real Atlanta. He has forged meaningful relationships with super producers Sonny Digital and Metro Boomin as well as upstart Fukk-12. His follow-up tape "Free Guwop EP" was a collaboration with Sonny Digital. 21 Savage is quickly becoming the voice of the streets, the voice of the real Atlanta.
