The current big thing in Atlanta hip-hop right now is OG Maco‘s U Guessed It. The banger has minimal production and maximal energy throughout, as Maco (who signed to Migos’ label QC this weekend) shouts “BITCH YOU GUESSED IT” and intersperses frenetic ad-libs.
This, however, wasn’t always his style.
Atlanta DJ GuyATL curated a mixtape of unreleased OG Maco records (from when he recorded as Maco Mattox) that are night and day from Maco’s recent output. Whereas we expect ignorant, incredible turn-up sounds from Maco, what we receive on the new mixtape Gifts is introspective and rangy for the young MC. We use MC because, this kid can SPIT. He proves with tracks like Jesus In A New Robe, a freestyle over the Kanye classic Devil In A New Dress, that he’s more than just a Bobby Shmurda shucking and jiving in the club. OG Maco is the real deal.
