The next time a smooth, hustling, yet refined southern bread rapper rides by in a “Chevy”, ask “Who is Dat?” It’s Scotty, part of the next generation of rap artists to take the music industry by storm. Raised by a single mother in Atlanta, GA, life wasn’t always easy for the budding superstar, but the sounds of Outkast, 8 Ball & MJG, UGK, and many other artists helped Scotty channel his energy into something positive: music. He immediately turned that instant love of hip-hop into an inspiring career of his own. As early as elementary school, Scotty rushed home from school every day to watch MTV and listen to legendary artists of the past and present. He learned and studied the ins and outs of the music industry through producing, songwriting, and performing. Winning nearly every middle and high school talent show, he was the most sought after local artist at school and off campus parties amongst his peers and other teens on the eastside of Atlanta.
Those who hear Scotty’s music can’t help but flock to his style of music that fuses the summertime-top back, yet utter realism heard through his songs. He is entertaining, yet humble; a hustler that’s all about business; fun, yet refined. The man, the music, the voice…whichever you get to know first, know that this is as real as it gets. All that’s left is to open your ears, crank up your radio and prepare yourself for the future of the south. His name is Scotty.
