Video: Genius x Felipe – “Make It Work” (prod. by TL on the Beat)
HipHopDX Premieres the Decatur, GA Rapper/DJ’s Video, the First From A Eastside Story: Deluxe Edition, Out in June
Decatur polymath Genius and his crew mob out at a liquor store in East Atlanta in the new video for “Make It Work,” premiered today by HipHopDX. With “Make It Work,” Genius introduces gold-grilled Atlanta rapper Felipe, as the duo take pride in the relentless lifestyle they lead while tackling a booming trap production from TL On the Beat, with the chorus boasting, “I was down bad but a young n*gga came up, guess who made somethin’ work.” The plug in a thriving scene that he helped orchestrate, Genius earned his rep as a DJ and curator in Atlanta clubs, breaking songs like Migos’ “Bando,” K Camp’s “Do It,” and Charlie Boy Gang’s “Beef It Up.” With a knack for discovering new talent, his A&R skills have come to the forefront with his well-respected and highly-trafficked Slumchat mixtape series, in which he compiles a blend of buzzing club records and original tracks.
Genius grew up outside of Negril, Jamaica before relocating to Decatur with his mom. “Make It Work” is the opening track from A Eastside Story: Deluxe Edition, a collaborative project from Genius with Felipe. Genius is the official DJ for K Camp, whom he tapped alongside Que for the VIBE-premiered “Movie 2.0,” which has been gaining traction with 40K+ streams since its release earlier this month. A Eastside Story: Deluxe Edition includes additional features from Hoodrich Pablo Juan, Mr. 2-17, K-Noe, Rich Espy, T-Hood, Coca Vango, Scotty ATL, and Two-9. Genius’ A Eastside Story: Deluxe Edition is slated for a June release.
