American hip hop rap duo composed of Spillage Village-emcees Johnny Venus and Doctur Dot, from Atlanta, Georgia, United States, composed of Atlanta-based rappers Olu and WowGr8, EarthGang have been riding high since the release of their new single “Options” featuring Wale.
Ghetto Gods Is about finding the God in you. It doesn’t matter if your from the Ghetto or not. We all have the light in us. Elevate and let it shine. Iis some of our best work so far and we’re going to give it to you the right way.
EarthGang recently confirmed that their upcoming album Ghetto Gods would be arriving after Lollapalooza in August, sparking the belief that it would follow MirrorLand’s lead with a September release. In the meantime, Olu and Wowgr8 have been keeping fans sated with a steady stream of loosies, including the recent standout “Aretha” and the Drake-sampling “Lemon Pepper Freestyle.”
Now, the duo has come through with a potential bombshell, taking to Twitter to tease a mysterious collaboration from their forthcoming project. As it happens, EarthGang recently received guest vocals from one of the following four: J. Cole, OutKast, Future, or Isaiah Rashad. They proceeded to open the floor to their fans, who flooded the comments with speculation.
“Options” featuring Wale is currently climbing up the Urban and Rhythmic radio charts (currently at #36 at both places) and to celebrate they joined The Breakfast Club’s Charlamagne and DJ Envy earlier this morning. On the show, Olu and WowGr8 discussed the formation of EARTHGANG, meeting and signing with J.Cole, the controversial comparison to Outkast and collectivity of Atlanta. The pair rounded out their interview by announcing the name of their upcoming project, Ghetto Gods.
They also explained the album’s title, Ghetto Gods, with Olu elaborating, “This whole conversation has been about respect for people making it out the hood.” Meanwhile, Wowgr8 echoes that sentiment: “The balance of being a God and being ghetto, it’s cool,” he expounds. They also explained that their “quarantine track” with Wale, “Options,” was made without ever being in the same room as their collaborator. Finally, Charlamagne asks the duo about the rumor that their album is dropping the same day as Cole’s.
Though each option was met with appreciation, many were quick to highlight OutKast as a standout, as EarthGang has long fielded comparisons to the legendary ATLiens. On the other hand, it also wouldn’t be surprising to see J. Cole slide through to contribute to Ghetto Gods, having opted to sit out of MirrorLand entirely. Future and Isaiah are also viable possibilities, as is the unlisted and undeniably best-case scenario option: the one in which all of the listed parties are ultimately included.
