ATL Zone 6 Standouts Yung Mal & Lil Quill Announce Blessed Lil Bastards 3 Mixtape, Arriving This Fall via 1017 Eskimo/Alamo
The Fresh-Faced Gucci Mane Prodigies Ball Out Like Athletes in “Dolce & Gabbana,” a Collaboration with Labelmate Hoodrich Pablo Juan
Tearing up the trap scene with their easy chemistry and energetic bounce, Yung Mal & Lil Quill is ATL’s next iconic rap duo. Ready to level up and reach a hungry new audience, Mal & Quill announce Blessed Lil Bastards 3, their upcoming project. Twisting their flows around each other’s with lightning-quick rhymes and infectious ad-libs, Blessed Lil Bastards 3 is a testament to the Zone 6 group’s ride-or-die bond. Though many ATL rappers opt to face the relentless grind as solo artists, Mal & Quill accentuate each other’s strengths, as Mal’s smooth and percussive flow contrast against Quill’s drawly cadences and irreverent ad-libs. The follow-up to Souf6, the duo’s collaborative tape with rising producer Richie Souf, Blessed Lil Bastards 3 arrives this fall via 1017 Eskimo/Alamo.
To accompany the announcement of Blessed Lil Bastards 3, Mal & Quill share “Dolce Gabbana,” their new collaborative single with 1017 Eskimo labelmate Hoodrich Pablo Juan. Boasting a bruising guest verse and a clever hook from Pablo, “Dolce Gabbana” is a percussive and grimy slice of trap, produced by Yung Lan and Marc Beatmonster. The three rappers take their craft seriously, they take their enormous wealth even more seriously, and they flex as if it’s an olympic sport: “Too many racks, my pocket got lumps/I come from a crumb, I cannot help but to stunt/Foreign my trunk in the front,” rhymes Lil Quill.
Proudly representing East Atlanta’s Zone 6, Yung Mal & Lil Quill are rising up on a wave of grassroots support. The duo gained attention with their irrepressible energy, swapping rapidfire bars on hits like “Been In My Bag,” which has over 1.2 million views on YouTube. With support from Gucci Mane, who signed the duo to his 1017 Eskimo venture, Yung Mal & Lil Quill are on track to become ATL’s biggest rap group since Migos. Most recently, the duo shared the warped and energetic clip for “Laundry” and the meditative video for the Richie Souf-produced “Ain’t The Same.”
