Atlanta rapper and Quality Control signee Marlo (formerly of Lil Marlo fame) is quickly making a name for himself in 2020. If QC’s roster and ability to break artists is any indication, you’ll be hearing a lot more from Marlo’s camp throughout the year. His latest is a joint venture between fellow Atlanta superstars Future and Lil Baby, taking things back to the trap house and on the corner with “1st N 3rd.”
The new single finds Future where he’s most comfortable thanks to a catchy chorus centered around “finessin’ and trapping” followed by tales of codeine sipping, dope deliveries and fur coats. Lil Baby follows up his “Sum 2 Prove” single from his upcoming sophomore effort My Turn and his unbelievably luxe Avianne & Co. ‘Baby Zombie Bandana’ chain with closing duties on the track.
“Lamborghini, baby I’m turnt/ I don’t want a b*tch, she burnt/ I was gettin’ money back then, ask whoever/ Million dollar spots, on god, had several/ Now I’m booked up, you can check my schedule/ Swear I ain’t regular, two hunnid racks for these shows,” Lil Baby raps referencing his quick success to the top and yet reveals he was a street millionaire even before his career as a rapper.
As for Marlo, he holds his own alongside the established success of Atlanta’s finest thanks to heavy auto-tuned melody and an established identity as a trapper thanks to time in the kitchen and deliveries from Mexico.
