One of the hottest and most authentic labels in Atlanta, FTR Records, gathers the best of the city’s talent to release “Thug Love (T.L.),” the latest single from promising young artists BAI, SG Blackboy Cal, and 2051 Paper. The romantic banger, dropped on Valentine’s Day, was accompanied by a music video directed by Nimi Hendrix and executive produced by George Howard.
“Thug Love (T.L.)” is a contemporary love story about how relationships get poisoned by doubt and distrust. It follows the narrative of a couple who are trying to overcome insecurities and prove how much they actually mean to each other. “When I’m stuck in my ways trippin’ out on you, you know what to say, you know what to do, a hundred different ways you’d be coming through,” sings BAI in her sultry voice.
All three artists have conquered the scene with their contagious energy and will go on to become names that everyone will remember. BAI recently released “MOOD” and “KIWI,” taking over both the Hip Hop and R&B genres with her powerhouse vocals and infectious charisma. SG BlackBoy Cal on the other hand is known in Atlanta as one of the most versatile and genuine rappers. 2051 Paper, who last dropped “Even,” holds great promise as well, especially after his recent signing with FTR Records.
Decent music labels like FTR Records restore hope in the industry’s future and provide passionate and emerging artists such as 2051 Paper, BAI, and SG BlackBoy Cal the opportunity to showcase their potential and skills. The Hip Hop scene is about to witness positive change and we can only hope that more tracks like “Thug Love (T.L.)” will see the light of day.
