The streets aren’t kind to Skinny Kids who can’t intimidate with their physiques, but feaherweights who do manage to make it through their adolescence end up developing courage, cunning and tenacity to compensate. Need proof? Look no further than Young Scolla, a Detroit buzzmaker whose unimposing appearance conceals an absolute beast on the mic. On a new promo single slated for inclusion on his next independent full-length, the longtime reader fave stresses the many hardships, disadvantages and obstacles that forged him into the burgeoning rap powerhouse he is today. Columbus, Ohio’s MGK jumps on Big Soj‘s cinematic, string-laced instrumental to deliver a middle verse about his own own struggles, from schoolyard brawls to friction with his father. OG Cool has yet to receive a drop date, but we’ll keep you supplied with the latest singles leading up to its eventual release.
