ATL’s Ralo uses his helium-pitched voice and unique melodic rhyming style to steal nearly every track on which he appears.
On “My Brothers,” the latest entry in Ralo’s #FamericanTuesday series, Ralo finds an ideal sparring partner in Future, as he holds his own with one of the most popular artists in today’s rap game.
Produced by frequent Future collaborator Southside of 808 Mafia and featuring a monster hook from Hendrix himself, “My Brothers” bangs as hard as any track released this year, with both rappers discussing the bond they share, saluting their day ones, and shooting down their haters over a reedy four-note melody, a booming bassline, and Southside’s signature kick and hi-hat. Ralo and Future previously connected in 2015 for “Can’t Lie,” which has earned nearly 2 million views on YouTube.
I’m not just rapping for exposure,” explains Ralo. “I want to bring people together. I want to have a good influence on the community; I want people to stop fighting each other.”
Ralo recently released the eighth chapter of his video diary, which details his life on the streets of Atlanta, on YouTube.
“My Brothers” is the latest single from Ralo’s Birdman-hosted mixtape Diary of the Streets II, the sequel to last year’s popular Diary of the Streets, hitting the internet on August 30th.
