Lil Tony

Rising Atlanta rapper Lil Tony Official has released his new mixtape 2 Sides 2 Every Story via Priority Records. Listen HERE. The 20-track tape continues the 19-year-old’s remarkable 2023 run, pairing his restless, punched-in raps with the brassy, electronic production characteristic of the new Atlanta underground. His voice is unmistakable in that wave, cutting through these massive beats with bars and flows well beyond his years.

A team of ascendant producers, including whyceg, the architect of 2sdxrtbxll’s sound, bring Tony a moodboard of neo-trap opulence, all shiny horns and sinkhole-inducing bass. He boasts the urgent cadence and menacing flows of 21 Savage and Young Nudy, but also delivers dazzling wordplay and understated humor: “Do I spot an opp with my chinny chin chin,” he smirks on “Genny Gen Gen.”

Elsewhere, like on “Kurtis,” Tony’s voice rises into snub-nosed sneers, with a barrage of unhinged ad-libs following every bar like a team of minions. Other standout tracks include the appropriately titled "Fuego"and offbeat "Long Live Jerry Springer." Experienced in full, 2 Sides 2 Every Story is a pressure cooker, simmering in moodiness before exploding into chaos, arguing for the inventiveness and staying power of this new wave of Atlanta rap.

2 Sides 2 Every Story follows a ceaseless year of music from Lil Tony Official. Lead single “Canoozled” has gained over 300K plays on its music video, with Pitchfork naming it the “the must-hear rap song of the day.” Earlier in November, he dropped the thrilling single “Looseleaf,” which has the minimal moodiness of a horror flick. He’s put out three tapes this year showcasing his range and hustle, including the relentless TKEY back in May and the more contemplative, melodic project For Mia. 

 Pushing a brash, yet lyrical style, the future is bright for Lil Tony and rap’s new mecca of Atlanta.
