A couple weeks ago VIBE sat down with one of the men responsible for the sound of “New Atlanta” — the young hotshot producer Sonny Digital. The beatsmith played us his new video for “50 On My Wrist” before it actually premiered and spoke to us on how he is transitioning from being strictly a producer to a full time artist.

He stated most people would think that just because he gained a platform from producing that all of a sudden he wants to rap, but that actually isn’t the case. Digital informed us that he been rapping since way back when he was uploading music on Myspace. It’s just that producing happened to pop off first for him, so he ran with it.

Sonny just released the track “Don’t Play,” which is produced by no one other than himself and features verses from Sizzle of 808 Mafia and Juciy J. The theme of the song is “money over b*tches” as the chorus goes “I do not lay with them bitches, I do not play with them bitches.” Sonny is also set to release his first solo project G.O.A.T. on October 1st with Hennessy.
