Best Local Hip-hop Act That’s Not OutKast


Staff Pick

This category could be titled “best local hip-hop act since OutKast.” SUPREEME is that good and that original — which is something that has been missing among Atlanta’s snappers and trappers for several years. Negashi Armada, King Self and Tom Cruz, aka Dope Pope, call themselves Supreeme because they’re arrogant little bastards. And they’ll take that as a compliment. With a lyrical style steeped in ‘80s-era braggadocio and in-house production that sounds more worldly than Southern, it’s no surprise that many of the group’s biggest fans live out of state. The former Grady High School classmates recently issued a mixtape, American Badass, while putting the finishing touches on a sophomore release. Word is the group’s label, Warner Brothers, is already digging the output. Hopefully the trio will let it go to their heads.
