Snootie Wild first came to my attention a couple of years ago at a record pool meeting in Memphis, as an amazing rapper from North Memphis with the unusual ability to command a Jamaican accent at will. This might not be unusual in a lot of cities, but there is almost no Caribbean presence in Memphis whatsoever, and Snootie has no island background When he released the single “Yayo” a few months later, he became the biggest artist in Memphis. Not long thereafter, he signed with Yo Gotti’s Cocaine Music Group, which has since been renamed Collective Music Group, and began to tour the country with Gotti. More recently, he has followed up the success of the earlier single with a new single called “No Kissing”, which blew up the streets of Memphis and other Southern cities all summer. So his appearances at A3C garnered a lot of attention, and his appearance at the BMI Showcase in East Atlanta Village was especially good. Despite his youth, Snootie Wild seems calm and in complete control, enjoying himself and bantering with crowd as if they were old and trusted friends. The young Memphian has great things ahead of him.

Keep up with Snootie Wild:

I wanted to make sure that I got the opportunity to see Bun B perform live at the Earl in East Atlanta Village, because although I had met Pimp C years ago in Port Arthur, I had never gotten an opportunity to see UGK perform live. In the event, the venue was packed to overflowing, and I really didn’t think I would get to see much. Fortunately, I was able to work my way up to the front near the stage, and was surprised to see that my homeboy Fort Knox was the master of ceremonies for that showcase. Bun’s performance touched on most of the most popular UGK songs, often with the audience reciting the late Pimp C’s verses. It was a great experience.
