Straight out of Atlanta, Georgia, Darryl Kevin Richardson AKA Lil Scrappy busted into the scenes in the early ’00s. Nicknamed the ‘Prince of the South’ and ‘Prince of Crunk’, Scrappy first signed to BME’s Lil Jon. He has built a strong reputation and energetic following throughout the Atlanta Hip-Hop scene with his up-tempo, heavy bass lines, layered synths and aggressive chants.
I asked Scrappy where he thinks Hip-Hop is headed towards these days; he said “It’s going wherever the artists are taking it, we birth so many artists a day, it could go anywhere. What I like about where it’s at now, is that there’s no one leader…it’s everybody popping now.”
We then went on to discuss the sound of his current music, and if he would ever go back to his old school crunk style “It’s not necessary, we gotta live with the times…That was a time. It was a place.”
It’s no secret Scrappy’s a Space Junkie, find out how I shocked Scrappy by knowing what his wife had gifted him.
