Scotty ATL has had to cope with losing nine family members and friends within the past year. To deal with dejection he hit the studio to record a new project dubbed, Daily Bread, which was released this week.
The 11-track project kicked off with singles “So High” featuring Jaydot Rain, and the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted “Bye Bye,” where he waxes poetically about those that he’s lost. The only other feature on Daily Bread is his Cool Club artist, Kissie Lee.
“The greatest rappers tell their life stories. That’s what I’m doing. I’m giving people my real life, the good, the bad and the ugly,” Scotty says via press release. “I focus on lyrics, focus on content and subject manner. I’m branding myself as a lyricist from ATL, like a T.I. or an Outkast, who can give some game on a track. I talk about both sides of the streets, meaning sometimes people can only glorify the streets but not warn about the dangers. I live that lifestyle but I’d also advise you to save money. If you’re risking your life every day, make it count.”
Daily Bread is available for stream below, and for purchase over at iTunes.
