Atlanta just cannot stop delivering up-and-coming rappers these days; maybe the city should start its own label? The latest to rise to the top of our Emerging Artists chart is Dae Dae, who enters the Top 5 at #3 this week.
Signed to Nitti Beatz, his track, Wat U Mean (Aye, Aye, Aye), was released in 2015 and steadily made its way around before things got a little nutty with this viral video. Social media attention followed, and relatively new powerhouse label 300 Entertainment picked the young rapper up.
Wat U Mean is currently Top 5 at Urban Radio and now has a remix featuring Lil Yachty backing it up. He did a run of live shows on Young Thug’s Hi-Tunes tour earlier this year and we’ll likely see more dates materialize before too long.
The 4 Reasons mixtape is giving fans plenty to check out so things don’t get stale, like Spend It and Dej Loaf (a former Emerging Artist being the reference for a current Emerging Artist’s song?! Cool.).
