For new artists, sometimes the only thing standing in between their old fans and new fans is the right feature. But that’s easier said than done for new artists. Without a major budget, new artists often have to rely on connections and good relationships to land a feature. But a good feature can boost you from a local talent to a mainstream sensation. Just look at how Drake’s feature made Makonnen’s ‘Tuesday’ the hit it was.
Atlanta has a good reputation in the industry as far as working relationships go. Unlike New York artists for example, Atlanta artists are known for working with each other instead of competing. That love isn’t only for Atlanta artists though; you’ll find many Atl artists linking with artists from all over.
In the case of Saginaw, Michigan artists King Swavay & ME8ighty, the love for Mary Jane is what led Scotty Atl to hop on the track. Even though 420 has passed, every day is 4/20 for the true cheifers of the culture. In a recent interview ME8ighty reveals he wrote the song for, “anyone who’s running low, on their last and trying to stretch until payday, or even someone who doesn’t smoke at all but mess with a girl that does and they have to buy some for her in hopes of getting to Vickie’s secret”. Can y’all relate? Ever needed Mary to get to Vickie’s?
Whether the answer is yes or no, this new track will have you ready to roll up and enjoy vibes. Michigan is already 420 friendly and after the recent law passed, Atlanta is a little more friendly. What’s most exciting about this song is that there hasn’t been a lot of Michigan-Georgia collabs even though they both have a strong history in the music industry. In the 60s artists were flooding to Detroit to be apart of the new music wave, now Atlanta is the music powerhouse. Check out the new track surely to prove King Swavay & ME8ighty wont be limited to Saginaw, Michigan for long!
