The Time Is Now for 5am

With the global success of Migos, it’s becoming more evident that there is some credible talent coming out of North Atlanta. Myself, being born and raised in the SWATS, the Northside was never really acknowledged. 5AM and his team are changing that.

When the loosie ‘New Diddy’ was released, it gained momentum with over 100k plays on Soundcloud & now with the recent re-release of ‘Euphoria‘ , 5AM really has some jams on this project.  The opener, ‘In a Minute’ is a modern, more wavy interpretation of Mike Jones’s sentiments on ‘Back Then‘. ‘Catching Vibes’ reminds me of a perfect summers night at the now closed Department Store, where 5AM used to perform before it was shut down. read more
