Each month, Poet Tree Entertainment collects some of the freshest lyricists on the Southeastern hip-hop scene for its Elements showcase. This installment will bring Rod McCoy as one of two hip-hop ambassadors from the ATL.

McCoy’s verbal flow is a smooth, hypnotic delivery of eclectic rhythms switched with skillful spontaneity. J-Coop will also be representing Hotlanta. With his smooth Dungeon Family-esque grooves, he’s picking up where Atlanta hip-hop icons Outkast left off.

For local artist Eterniti hip-hop is an art form. His well-thought-out lyrical arrangements create an intricate mix of rhythm and spoken word amplified by personal and social philosophies for the modern world.

Unicorn Bounty Hunters will provide this lineup with a dose of homegrown indie hip-hop. This collective’s greatest aspect is the sonic personality of each member, especially on such memorable tracks as “Garden of Eden.”
