Mixtape: Peewee Longway – The Blue M&M 4
The MPA Bandcamp CEO Shares the Latest Volume of His Signature Mixtape Series, Flashes His Megawatt Smile in the “Fiji Water” Video
“Peewee Longway is one of hip-hop’s secret weapons.” – XXL
“His topic is usually trapping, but that singular scope allows him to be one of Atlanta’s most consistent rappers on the subject.” – Pitchfork
“As a sheer vocal stylist, Longway is an absolutely incredible rapper, one capable of finding five different cadences on one spacey beat and then trying them all out in the space of a single verse.” – Stereogum
Flipping through an arsenal of fresh flows, switching up his vocal patter at a moment’s notice, Peewee Longway crafts unpredictable trap music with an infectious swing. Continuing a mixtape series he started in 2014, Peewee shares The Blue M&M 4, his latest project. Packed with percolating keys and swinging hi-hats, The Blue M&M 4 is the purest distillation yet of Peewee’s unique aesthetic, as he weaves his various flows into infectious cadences and hooks. Featuring guest appearances from Quavo, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, and more, and production from Zaytoven, Swagdot, Cicero of 808 Mafia and Spaghetti Jay, The Blue M&M 4 drops via MPA Bandcamp/EMPIRE.
In addition to the new mixtape, Peewee shares “Fiji Water,” his latest music video. Released as the lead single from BMM4, “Fiji Water” is a bouncy for-the-ladies jam. In the video, Peewee travels around Atlanta with a model in his Rolls Royce, stopping only to do his dance and count his bands.

Peewee Longway, born Quincy Williams, is an Atlanta based artist known for his unorthodox flow and extraordinary use of intonation. Hailing from the tough streets of South Atlanta, Peewee, as his friends refer to him, grew up in a single parent home with one brother and one sister. Regardless of the obstacles he was presented with Peewee Longway still found a way to persevere and becomeknown as one of Atlanta’s most revered lyrical new artists. His debut mixtape Money, Pounds, Ammunition was released in March of 2013. Though most became familiar with Peewee Longway from his affiliation with his mentor, and close friend, Gucci Mane’s label 1017, he actually nurtured and created his own imprint, MPA Bandcamp Music Group. The next release, Running Around the Lobby, picked up steam and earned Peewee loyal fans that call themselves “Lobby Runners”. In turn this became the name to the third mixtape he put out that same year, in December of 2013.
Much like his peers that emerged from the Trap Music explosion in Atlanta, such Young Thug and Future, Peewee’s work ethic is phenomenal having released 10 projects since his debut in 2013. The last three projects Peewee released (Blue M&M King Size & MPA Vol. 2 & 3) were actually released in just months of each other. When asked, Peewee says that among his favorite Groups and Artists are the Hot Boyz, No Limit, Tupac, E40, and Gucci Mane. With hits like “Sneekin and Geekin,” “Cost to Be the Boss,” and “I Just Want the Money,” Peewee began to gain the attention of legends like LL Cool J, who named him his “favorite new artist”. He also began to record with fellow Artists, such as ASAP Rocky, E40, Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, and Wale. Music Publications including The Fader, Complex, and XXL have also taken notice of the budding superstar, crediting his contribution to the evolution of Southern music.
