Atlanta-based Scotty ATL is on the way up, and nothing can stop him. Scotty is a rapper, producer, songwriter, and businessman, and with his newest album Daily Bread, it only makes sense that he started making moves in music at a very early age. He states that he was guided into the hip-hop scene by watching his parents while he was very young, who would play 2Pac and a list of other great names in his company. During his time in high school, Scotty began to focus in on his interests, taking the first steps towards making money off of his music. He spent his free time building a home studio in the basement of his home to record music with his friends. Afterwords, they would burn them to disc and sell the CDs at his school to his peers. Believe it or not, a success like Scotty almost went into a career in sports instead. Upon graduating from Redan High School in Atlanta, he was offered a spot at Savannah State University to play basketball. Even in college, Scotty was eventually pulled back to the music scene as part of the group he had created 2339 Underground Boyz. After a record deal failed to pull through, he decided to move back to Atlanta.
Years of released mixtapes went by with successful singles that slowly built his reputation up in the game. Scotty took part on his first headlining tour in 2013 throughout the US, which led to him finally getting his moment after his hard work and dedication caught the attention of artist B.O.B. Scotty ATL began on a nation-wide tour shortly after he paired up his own label Cool Club with B.O.B. and began hitting it big. Scotty was a feature on the remix of Cloud IX by Curren$y, which ended up being one of Scotty’s most popular hits. Since then, he has been opening across the globe for Big K.R.I.T. with BJ the Chicago Kid and performed at the Hot 107.9 Birthday Bash in 2015. Along with his music career, Scotty ATL created a company that sells grills aka custom gold mouthpieces, which has been doing very well. The company supplies to some celebrity clientele including rappers Rich Homie Quan, K Camp, Killer Mike.
Recently, he released his latest album, Daily Bread, consisting of 12 tracks, which is turning heads. A few months ago, we received the devastating new that Bankroll Fresh, one of his closest friends, was murdered, along with four others. This was nothing short of a tragedy, especially for Scotty. ATL continued to work and finish this album through the pain, despite all odds. “It feels wonderful to get this project out of my body, mind and spirit,” he said. “I wanted my fans to be able to follow the story of who I am as a person, and what I went through.” Scotty is an amazing person and artist, and he is not stopping any time soon.
