The Alamo Records Signee Connects with Rising Producer Pyrex Whippa for a Luxurious 12-Track

Stacking racks on racks and perfecting his unique flow, Yung Mal prepares to take over the trap game. Taking a major step on his ladder to stardom, Mal shares 6 Rings, his new project. Created in collaboration with rising producer Pyrex Whippa, 6 Rings is an excellent showcase for Mal’s effortlessly intricate rhymes. The 24-year-old rapper is an expert at finding unique rhythmic pockets within the beat:

“ROCKIN’ TWO CHAINS AND I GOT ON VERSACE/COUPE GOT TWO SEATS, SO I RIDE WITH THE CHOPPA,”

-YUNG MAL/EXOTIC

Along with the new project, Mal shares the video for 6 Rings standout “Shut Up.” The new track boasts one of Pyrex’s best beats, combining ascending woodwind samples and subterranean bass–it’s a triumphant fanfare. “Shut Up” is proclaiming Mal and guest rappers Lil Keed and Lil Gotit as the new kings of Atlanta trap. The three rappers take turns attacking the beat in their complementary styles. Mal’s hushed pitter-patter grounding Gotit and Keed’s abstract flights of fancy. In the video, directed by Diesel Films, the three emcees gather on a basketball court, mobbing to the music with a crew of Zone 6’s realest residents. “Shut Up” follows the stylish video for 6 Rings highlight “Blake Griffin,” a snarling collaboration with Freebandz rapper Doe Boy.

6 Rings is Yung Mal’s first full-length project since last summer’s release of Iceburg, his debut solo mixtape. The mixtape hosted a long line of successful singles, including the Gunna-featuring “War” (612k views), the Gucci Mane-featuring, Complex-premiered “Fresh”, and the exotic slapper “Action,” featuring Lil GotIt, produced by Pi’erre Bourne, and premiered by HYPEBEAST. More recently, Mal dropped a line of fiery video singles, including “Dollar Signs,” “Juggernaut,” the “Numbers (Remix)” ft. Stunna 4 Vegas, and last week’s “Bachelor.” With 6 Rings, Mal looks to kickstart a breakout year and propel himself into ATL’s A-list.
