Lil PJ, one of Atlanta’s most exciting new trap artists, recruits Baton Rouge mainstay Fredo Bang for the raucous street anthem “Big Poppin”, out now via Interscope Records. On the addictive track, PJ’s melodic flow is perfectly accented by Fredo’s gruff, precise approach. “Big Poppin” is available now at all digital retailers.
On “Big Poppin,” Lil PJ turns in bars about life as a hustler in the ATL with a precise double-time flow. “You won’t catch me in no club unless the promoters come pay me,” he spits. “On the phone with my Baltimore vibe, yes, her name Raven.” With that one bar, PJ shares his ambitious philosophy and manages to weave in a clever pun. He then passes the mic to Fredo Bang, who rises to the occasion over the dramatic, melodic beat that drives the track.
“Big Poppin” finds Lil PJ in an assertive frame of mind, ready to make his presence felt in Atlanta’s rap scene. Recent single “Southside” has already garnered nearly 150,000 views on YouTube, while the emotional “Living To Die” examines the myths of success while growing up in a neighborhood where he keeps losing his day ones. These sorts of frank, honest tracks have already earned him attention from tastemaking outlets like Earmilk and Lyrical Lemonade.
Earlier this year, PJ’s full-length project, Gift From God, established his gritty credentials with tracks like the confident, luxuriant, Lil Gotit-featuring “Regardless.” Now, with tracks like “Big Popping,” he’s showing off his mastery of different sounds and styles, allowing himself to let loose and enjoy his burgeoning success.
