If there’s one man who not only understands the grind, but lives by the laws of the hustle, it’s Audible Hustle‘s very own, Horus Gump, an Atlanta-based musical alchemist; everywhere from blazing bars and defiant keys, to injecting his vision into every last beat.
It’s officially Gumpday. Following the fiery debut of “No Politickin,” Gump now returns with yet another highflier anthem, “Bubble Up,” featuring Sir Hop and PR0B3. Gump spits the essential hustler libretto; lines only true bootstrappers ready to bubble up could feel – “Imma sleep when my lifeline up, I’m in the reach of what I grind for.”
Just as Gump declares, he’s got the same “hustle of a dope boy with a starter bag,” and not even the gods could keep Horus from flying high.
If you “sew just what you’re reapin’,” then this is an anthem you’re sure to Horus Bump.

EarthGang, an Atlanta-based hip hop duo, take listeners on a mystified trip with their latest album Mirrorland, an A1 Dreamville Records‘ production that exhibits Atlanta’s explicit creative power through an outlandish, circus-themed soundtrack brought to you by two of the rap game’s most whimsical.
Attending to the sounds of two wickedly-talented rappers and Spillage Village co-founders Olu and WowGr8, the flawless pairing behind EarthGang, is to escape the mundane and embrace the extraordinary. Mirrorland is a musical evocation of losing yourself in a house of mirrors, running wild with gypsies, braced by fire blowers and mesmerised by contortionists.
Mirrorland is heavily influenced by the 1978 film The Wiz, an African-American adaptation of The Wizard of Oz. This 14-track album is an inviting exposé of the many mystical landscapes that only Atlanta, Georgia, has to offer.
EarthGang is simply beguiling; a one-of-a-kind artist reinventing the multi-faceted world of hip hop as we know it with Mirrorland, featuring Young Thug, T-Pain, Kehlani, Arin Ray, and Malik.
Admit one to the circus below.
As far as Atlanta’s local talent goes, Rello the God is most definitely top tier. Corny cliché topics, phrases, and ideas are absent from his music as he delivers both feel-good vibes and important messages. Now he’s dropped is first mixtape of 2017 and, as usual, he doesn’t disappoint.
Soul Hop & Saving Grace opens up in spectacular fashion with, “DO MY THANG”. He continues his barrage of lyrical assaults over some ultra-smooth beats cooked up by a talented team of producers including Phresh Bueller, B. Young, Justin Kase, AuggieMayne, Dan Fresh, Major League Beats, Bobby Williams, and Rello the God himself. MC’s Truth the God, Pro, and Audible Hustle’s own Billy Vietlanta all come through with guest verses as well.
Overall, Soul Hop & Saving Grace is worth a listen. In fact, it’s worth quite a few listens. So, check it out right here. Also, get the chance to see Rello the God perform live on April 13th at The Audible Hustle being held at Atlanta’s The Music Room.
