It feels like whatever’s happening in Atlanta is the most important stuff in hip-hop right now, and maybe even music as a whole. The scene continues to fracture, every new artist seems to build on the last one, and the competition is pushing rappers to innovate like never before.
Since the A is the epicenter of rap right now, World Star gathered five of the city’s most powerful DJs – DJ Scream, DJ E Sudd, DJ Swamp Izzo, DJ Pretty Boy Tank and DJ Tephlon – to debate the seven hottest rap songs in the area right now.
They (roughly) agree on seven (with K Camp’s “Lil Bit” landing an honorable mention), and you can see those below. The other songs mentioned include:

Watch the debate about what the hottest song in Atlanta is right now above. Hopefully we see more of this kind of stuff in the future.
