Album: Young Scooter – Trippple Cross
With Aid From Some of the South’s Finest Producers and Emcees, the ATL Heavy Hitter Levels Up on His Latest Project
“He floats at the beat, rather than locking into the pocket, as if he were only somewhat concerned with the rhythm. His verses are more compelling for this style, and it makes conventional rappers seem a bit stiff and square in comparison.” – Complex
“For those who miss the rougher edges that made trap music blow up in the first place, Jugg King is a welcome reminder of the genre’s range.” – Noisey
Confidently crafting redemptive street stories, ATL’s Young Scooter is one of the most compelling figures in the trap game. Returning to the scene with a 14-track dose of concentrated hardness, Scooter shares Trippple Cross, his latest project. With multiple guest appearances from ATL innovators Young Thug and Future, whose hyper-melodic flights of fancy mesh perfectly with Scooter’s earth-shaking baritone, Trippple Cross is packed with braggadocios boasts, slick punchlines, and heartfelt accounts of Scooter’s legal tribulations. Though the record’s subject matter can grow heavy, Scooter never loses his cool, creating hooks with a wry grin and rhythmic invention. Featuring appearances from Young Thug, Future, Youngboy Never Broke Again, Casino, and VL Deck, Trippple Cross arrives via EMPIRE.
The follow up to 2017’s Juug King mixtape, Trippple Cross re-establishes Scooter as a heavy-hitter in the Atlanta scene. Earlier this year, Young Scooter shared “Trippple Cross,” the tape’s titanic trunk-rattling title track, which features appearances from Young Thug, who delivers a compelling pipsqueak hook, and Future, who complements Scooter with an auto-tuned verse. Last week, Scooter recounts a timeline of his life and legal issues in “Bail Out.“ Premiered by Complex,”Bail Out” features a verse from YoungBoy Never Broke Again, who speaks on his own trials and tribulations. On “Bail Out,” “Trippple Cross,” and the rest of the album, Scooter shows the skills that earned him the respect of the biggest rappers in the game and demonstrates that he deserves to be mentioned among the best in his city.

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.
