Towards the tail end of last year Que, the Atlanta rapper with a gruff enough voice to make a car alarm jump and blare released “OG Bobby Johnson”. In terms of a hard Atlanta rap record that couldn’t be moved off of its pedestal, “OG” was king – loud and menacing thanks to Sonny Digital and inescapable thanks to the bombardment of freestyles that followed.

“Fuck Around,” Que’s latest track revolves around that same concept. There’s a quiet build up but Digital’s production and Bankroll Fresh’s bookending verse determine one thing: they’re not messing around here or trying to be something different. If the #NewAtlanta has a go-to sound, it all lies in the mind and keyboard of Sonny Digital, who could drag a steely piano movement and add some drums around it in his sleep.
