Atlanta’s OG Maco has been easily the most talked about new rapper over the course of the past two months. His breakout hit “U Guessed It” is everywhere, but the conversation surrounding him specifically is only continuing to grow because he’s proven to have had a collection of gems in the vault, effectively staving off any potential “one-hit wonder” labels.

Today, Maco continues his tear with a brand new seven-track mixtape called Live Life 2 produced almost entirely by Cardo. It’s a follow-up to this February’s Live Life and a perfectly timed release as new fans are arriving in droves. As expected, Maco’s energy is perhaps the most compelling element of the project all the way through. He slows things down with the Johnny Cinco-featured “Sheesh 2” and gets personal with “Broke Or Rich 2,” but for the most part, it’s an addictingly boisterous Maco powering tracks with screaming adlibs and booming hooks. “Lets Get It,” on which Cinco reappears, is a triumphant cut produced by OG Parker (a fellow representative of Maco’s OGG clique), concluding the high-octane ride on a feel-good note.

Stream Live Life 2 in its entirety below, and stay tuned for more.
