Lucki Eck$ is perhaps the least known artist on this list but it’s in no way due to lack of talent. He’s been in the game for a couple of years and dropped several projects. However, Freewave 2 seems to be the project that Lucki is most comfortable in. He flows effortless over trap-esc type beats that fit him so well, giving fans a healthy helping of the best demon there is.
Lil Yachty became an overnight sensation after dropping the trappers equivalent of a love song “One Night”. To capatalize on his newfound stardom he dropped his debut mixtape Lil Boat, and solidified himself as Atlanta’a next big thing. The 14 track effort was a solid start for Lil Yachty’s quickly rising career and introduced fans to an entirely new sound coming out of Atlanta – a sound we like to call “Bubble Gum Trap”.

Kodak Black might be sitting behind bars, but he still dropped one of the best mixtapes of 2016. Graciously titled “Lil Big Pac” (paying homage to both Tupac and Biggie Smalls) with 13 tracks of pure fire including “Vibin In This Bih” featuring the newly freed Gucci Mane. Florida’s answer to Lil Boosie is finally here, and despite his legal status, it doesn’t seem like he’s going anywhere any time soon.

Migos have been big players in Atlanta’s trap music scene since dropping “Versace” in 2013. However, Offset’s (1/3 of Migos) legal troubles has slowed their development as a rap group.
Luckily for Migo fans Offset was able to get back into the studio long enough and finish the second installment to their Young Rich Nigga mixtape series.
