Some consider AThug the new kid on the block but his social media presence says otherwise. The many showcases he has headlined have been packed to capacity. Bar for bar the young king is proving why New York, Harlem to be exact, is the home of the spitters. So it’s safe to say there’s nothing new about AThug. The proud descendant of a Panamanian mother and African-American father is bringing back that old New York rap that we been desperately missing. He spits that melanin rap but he’s no Kendrick or J.Cole. AThug cannot be placed in a box. when you lwatch his video to Black Lives Matter he comes off as conscious, yet on Bomb First he’s a merciless mobster. AThug is a versatile monster with an energy reminiscent of an early Busta Rhymes except on steroids. His flow is impeccable and he can ride any beat you place before him. Each track in his extensive catalogue brings about comparison of rap greats like Pac, Big L or even Big Pun. It’s not far-fetched to hear his name mentioned in the same category as these lyrical geniuses. Unlike other artist who ride on the coattails of others AThug created his own brand and became the master of his own destiny. Through his MegaStar Imprint, launched in 2006, he has single handily solidified his presences in the world of entertainment. When he is not wearing the many hats of his burgeoning brand you can find him on 125th supplying his brand to the public. the entrepenuer also peddles his wares online. Be it music, videography, custom clothes or photography or the highly successful MegaStar TV. AThug has astake in it. Whether AThug is the answer to the decline of New York in the hip hop stratosphere remands to be seen. But what can’t be debated is this young god’s star is on the rise.
