Young Bree may be a newcomer to the crowded Atlanta rap scene, but he has wasted no time in making a name for himself. Check Ya Swag, the first single from his debut album, Diary of an Ex-Trapper, manages to capture all the elements essential to the familiar Atlanta sound: heavy drums, booming bass, and layered wordplay. Aided by producer Young Sears and fellow “Atliens” Shawty Redd and Killer Mike, Bree, a convicted felon, shows off his “swag” on one of the many verses he wrote during a two-year stint in the Atlanta jail system. As a self-proclaimed disciple of Goodie Mob and Outkast, he certainly has a lot to live up to (and plenty of time to do so).
