Mixtape: Ralo – Diary of the Streets 3
The Prolific, Helium-Voiced ATL Trapster Levels Up For His Most Exciting Project Yet
Critical Praise for Ralo:
“With “My Brothers,” Ralo shows the full range of his improvements since his last project, displaying a new mastery of his own flow that should be enough evidence of his potential star power.” – Noisey
Attacking trap tracks with an expressive caterwaul, Ralo pioneers a tough-talking, yet spiritual approach to Atlanta street rap. Nearly three years after the release of Diary of the Streets, Ralo’s debut project, the ATL kingpin delivers his most accomplished project yet with Diary of the Streets 3. Flourishing under the tutelage of mentor Gucci Mane, Ralo levels up as an emcee on Diary of the Streets 3, bending his helium-voiced flow around snapping snares, finding new melodies, and crafting memorably idiosyncratic punchlines. With production from the likes of Zaytoven, Cassius Jay, and Twysted Genius, Diary of the Streets 3 is an empathetic and thoughtful piece of work that paints a detailed picture of Ralo’s life as a kingpin, a devout Muslim, and a father. Featuring appearances from Gucci Mane, Young Thug, Young Dolph, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Boosie Badazz, YFN Lucci, Hoodrich Pablo Juan, Trouble, Lil Baby, Philthy Rich, Key Glock, Jay Fizzle, and more, the mixtape achieves a balance between boisterous flexes, menacing threats, and serious self-reflection from Ralo, who carries the weight of the project with his charisma. Arriving via EMPIRE, the mixtape is stacked with potential hits, such as the XXL-premiered “Dream Last Night,” which boasts a guest spot from YFN Lucci, the Youngboy Never Broke Again-featuring, FADER-premiered “Rain Storm,” “Die Real,” a Complex-premiered track featuring Young Dolph and Trouble.
Born and raised in The Bluff, a notoriously dangerous neighborhood in West Atlanta recently featured in the film Snow On the Bluff, Ralo (neé Terrell Davis) provided for his family at a young age, selling CDs and DVDs on the streets while honing his rap skills. Unfortunately, his youthful indiscretions caused him to spend much of his young life in and out of jail. After emerging from prison for the final time in 2015, Ralo found Islam, and he dedicated his life to making the streets a safer place through his music. In 2017, Ralo teamed up with Gucci Mane to release Ralo LaFlare, which featured appearances from heavy-hitters like Young Thug, Young Dolph, Lil Durk, Fetty Wap, OJ Da Juiceman, and production from Cassius Jay, Super Mario, Honorable C-Note, Wheezy, and more. In November, Ralo teamed up with DJ Kutt Throat to release Plugged In With The Cartel, which featured appearances from Young Thug, DJ Luke Nasty, Lil Baby, Young Greatness, Casino, Lotto Savage, Sy Ari Da Kid, and others. With his unique mic presence, his undeniable talent, and the respect of the best and brightest in the ATL scene, Ralo’s star will only continue to rise with Diary of the Streets 3.

After gaining notoriety in the Atlanta trap scene working with artists such as Future and Young Scooter, Ralo founded #Famerican, a music movement and community foundation under his direction.
