Agen is a beautiful city, but why two Atlanta natives like CyHi The Prynce and B.o.B. would craft an ode to the Papa New Guinea township is beyond me. Wait..hold on…I’m being told that CyHi’s new single, A-TOWN, making it’s world premiere right here on The DJBooth, is indeed a tribute to The A. Well, that makes much more sense. Aptly-named producer Anthem fittingly grabs a sample from the Atlanta Braves theme song to craft an instantly head nodding beat full of horns and marching band percussion. The headliner leads off the lyrical procession by promising that he’ll bleed Georgia red until the day he dies, followed by a strippers-best-friend Travis Porter on the hook and then, frankly, B.o.B. runs the anchor leg by absolutely First 48ing a guest verse filled with Decatur-centric references and aggressive hilariously bars. (Come on, you have to laugh at “I’m high like eagle pu**y.”) Atlanta natives, you have a new anthem, and tourists should feel free to play this one at maximum volume as well. Much more ATL-ness awaits fans on CyHi’s upcoming The Ivy League Club mixtape, set to drop soon.
