Atlanta-based rap super-group, Bankroll Mafia, comprised of T.I.P., Young Thug and Atlanta’s upcoming stars Shad Da God, London Jae, and YSL Duke, will be releasing their debut self-titled project, Bankroll Mafia, this Friday, April 22nd via EMPIRE Distribution.
Founded by Atlanta rap legend, T.I.P., the group released their first collaboration in 2015 entitled “Bankrolls on Deck,” which received acclaim from the rap community. In early 2016, they released “Out My Face,” an Isaac Flame produced trap banger featuring a menacing hook. Earlier this week, they released the video for “Out My Face” which is currently BET Jams’ “Jam of the Week.”
Bankroll Mafia has released a trailer for the album, which tells a visual story as T.I.P. narrates, “From paper bags to duffel bags, you name it they got it. The pillars of the community, they provide notoriously, by any means necessary.”
A shorter, easily shareable version of the trailer is also available.
All five members of Bankroll Mafia will be in Atlanta this Friday to host a private listening event.
T.I.P.’s .distinctive drawl and unassailable flow has blasted the Dirty South into the mainstream, making Atlanta one of today’s most diverse and vibrant hip-hop scenes. The brightest of Atlanta’s rising stars, Young Thug, hypnotizes, thrills and confounds listeners with his unique sense of melody, entrancing ad-libs, and stream-of-consciousness wordplay. Together, with Atlanta local favorites Shad The God, London Jae, and YSL Duke, the five rappers form the rap super-group Bankroll Mafia, and will release their debut self-titled album this Friday, April 22nd.
EMPIRE was founded in 2010 as an artist-friendly, progressive digital distribution company. After early success, and identifying future icons such as Kendrick Lamar, Sage The Gemini, and Rich Homie Quan, EMPIRE was quickly regarded as a tastemaker in the industry and throughout the past five years evolved into a full-fledged record label, distributor and publisher for independent musicians. With the company and roster growing at a breakneck pace, EMPIRE has effectively disrupted a stale business model by bringing its energy, expertise, and acumen to its artists and labels. Given its reputation, EMPIRE works with today’s hottest talent from superstars such as T.I. and red-hot newcomers such as Anderson .Paak. While remaining 100% independent, EMPIRE has also partnered with Atlantic Records for a joint venture, home to breakout star D.R.A.M. and joined forces with Republic Records for the release of Sage The Gemini’s Remember Me album.
