Scotty sat down with DJ Smallz Eyes to talk about his hometown’s Hip Hop scene. During the interview, the “Pray Alone” rhymer discussed what he sees as an inaccurate label often placed on Atlanta rappers.

“Everybody’s in a hurry to b f**king famous, and nobody wants to be great no more. Perfect that s**t. Focus on being legendary and not try and be one hit wonders,” provided Scotty as advice to other A-town artists. “I think we get a bad rap for being like that in Atlanta where outsiders or out-of-towners are like ‘Atlanta rappers are here today and gone tomorrow.’ I would like to see everybody do their best and prove the rest of the world wrong.”
