After nearly a year of teasing the project on social media, Atlantaâs newest rising star, Lil Keed, has released his debut album, Long Live Mexico. While he doesnât stray too far from his Young Thug-esque sound that has drawn criticism, Keed manages to distinguish himself and carve out his own corner in the ever-growing Atlanta rap scene. The album is bursting at the seams with star-studded features from artists that complement Keed incredibly well, with the exception of NAV. Despite the lengthy 20-song track list and hour runtime, the album does not seem nearly as long. With a majority of the albumâs tracks flowing seamlessly into each other, the album feels like one cohesive unit that doesnât burn out the listener with identical and repetitive songs, as many recent rap albums seem to do (looking at you, Migos). This is due, in part, to the robust roster of producers that had a hand in the albumâs creation and kept the project interesting, including Piâerre Bourne, JetsonMade, and, of course, ATLâs own MetroBoomin. This album by no means a 10/10, but still a strong studio debut nonetheless, adding Keed to the long list of Atlanta rap icons. â

Outside of the working world, music is something I invest a lot of time in, in more ways than one. I could spend hours on my SoundCloud timeline, Apple Music, or YouTube discovering new artists to listen to and enjoy. I have channeled this love into brief music reviews that can be found in the appropriate part of this website. I have also begun to produce music myself, learning the ins and outs of Ableton, Serum, Audacity, and other software, and it still remains one of my favorite ways to spend my free time. It has sparked a love for learning new technologies and software and that is something I hope to continue to grow with. I feel that my lifelong interest in the technical side of creative arts combined with my newfound love for analytics combine perfectly and serve me well in the marketing and advertising realm.
