The bubbling hip-hop scenes of Memphis and Atlanta continue to be hotbeds for burgeoning talent, as NLE Choppa and ATL Jacob look to play a role in carrying the torch for the next generation of musicians hailing from the South.
Even though he's not of legal age to drive a car by himself, Choppa's already notched his first Hot 100 entry with "Shotta Flow," which debuts at No. 96 on this week's chart. For his follow-up act, Choppa teams alongside the Freebandz producer for a salute to the streets with today's (May 3) release of "Blocc is Hot."
The emerging pair met for the first time down in Atlanta thanks to their managers having them connect for a studio session about two weeks ago. Jacob was already on Choppa's radar as a wunderkind beatmaker he'd been interested in working with. In their first session alone, there was already some kind of chemistry in the room.
