Yo Gotti recently hosted a listening party with DJ Drama for his latest mixtape, ‘The Return,’ at Mean St. Studios in Atlanta Georgia. Atlanta’s key DJs, artists, media, music execs, and tastemakers were in the building to get a first listen of the project. When asked about his success with consistently putting out solid mixtapes, Yo Gotti said,
“Good dope sells itself, and I just have it.”
He explained that the streets support him because his music is therapy and motivation for himself and his fans. He represents the artist that went against everything he was told and still came out successful. Yo Gotti describes his latest mixtape, ‘The Return’ as a well rounded project. He said the project could’ve been an album, and it’s probably better than a lot of other artists’ albums. Yo Gotti also revealed he recently opened up an office called CMG Atlanta to look for new talent as there is always a lot of talent coming out of one of the central locations of the south, Atlanta. The event was facilitated by the We Global agency.
AllHipHop caught up with Yo Gotti to discuss his successful run over the years, his new artist, and his latest mixtape. Check out the interview below.
