Atlanta is the undeniable leader in the hip hop game right now. The only true competitor is Florida with the spawn of young legends like X and Ski Mask. Atlanta is known for its catchy trap tunes created by heavy hitters like Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Migos, and 21 Savage.

Enter Steelo Hefner, the lyrical MC who submitted “The Release” for our consideration. With his J Cole like flow, he had us bumping our heads remembering a day where an artist’s talent was as important as their image.
