Kato‘s production company, SMKA, had the idea to book a studio for 4 days and invite a number of Atlanta Hip-Hop artists to come through and make some history together. The result is The Hang Out, with the first song to see the light of day being a Kato Production. He’s joined by Jackie Chain, Scotty and RaRa on a track called “Pimpin Mane”. Be on the lookout for the rest of the project to drop in March but enjoy this down south leak in the mean while.
The Hang Out produced by SMKA
4 Days x 50 Artists x 20 Songs
Atlanta production collective, SMKA, blocked out 882 Studios for 4 days, and invited many of Atlanta’s most talented and progressive hip-hop artists to hang out, eat, drink, collaborate and make music. The Hang Out took place from February 7th – 10th, and for 16 hours a day, 4 days straight, Justin Padron, of 882 Studios, recorded artists over SMKA production.
The Hang Out compilation features more than 50 different artists on 20 original records produced entirely by SMKA producers: 808 Blake, Kato and J.Padron. The Hang Out showcases the depth of talent, and diversity, that makes Atlanta’s hip-hop community the most creative and influential in the world.
The compilation will be split up and released in two separate projects…
The Hang Out [Part 1] = March 26th
The Hang Out [Part 2] = April TBA
