Atlanta Is Back At It With Another Hip Hop Force Not To Be Reckoned With: Introducing Young Nudy

For a good minute now, Atlanta, Georgia has undoubedtly been a hotbed for hip hop. The Southeastern capitol has spurred on names both big and small, but all equal in their southern flavor and tenacious efforts, often masked in an veil of nonchalance—things just seem more effortless when you here an Atlien spit. Things rings true from the big dogs like Outkast, T.I., Ludacris, Goodie Mob, Killer Mike, Gucci Mane… the list goes on, right down to the up-and-coming, the most recent of which is ATL native Young Nudy.

The hip hop artist is the cousin of fellow ATL rapper Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, better known as 21 Savage.

The burgeoning rapper recently released his debut album Slimeball back in October of last year, and has since started garnering the attention of media more niche to hip hop, but still relatively undiscovered when it comes to the larger lime light. This is where we step in. However in saying that, Nudy does already come with a fact that seems to follow him around: the hip hop artist is the cousin of fellow ATL rapper Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, better known as 21 Savage. And while you’ll no doubt find similarities in sound between the two, Young Nudy’s offerings comes with a more raw, somewhat unpolished you’ll find Metro Boomin on only one of his Slimeball tracks) aesthetic, yet just as wavy as his familia and generational counterparts.

But the lack of Boomin no qualms for the young artist, as he’s already working with others that bring their own share of solid production work. Take Myth Syzer for example, who produced the track “Don’t Trust Yall” which you can check the official visuals of above. And then there’s the new kid in town Pi’erre Bourne, who’s productions are stacking up to being something formidable. While there’s not much out on Young Nudy yet in terms of personal life—minus the fact that he reps the infamous Paradise East, the best way to get familiar is to of course listen through, which you can do from his Soundcloud page here, and our selects throughout.
