By: Brandon Clay @PSBPopCulture and By: Jordan Davis @JDavisPSB
Atlanta is a city well known recently for pushing the pace forward in entertainment, fashion and music alike. With everyone trying to get into fashion, art, and music the level of competition throughout is at what some would say is an all time high.
In addition to industry success: followers, likes and retweets are coveted by even the most established in the fields above. Two Atlanta-based producers share more than early age success and a household, they share a direct family bond. Brothers (@DamiThaPrince) & (@SoundByAde) continue to show they belong in the conversation of who has next from the city that forever changed the hip-hop landscape with OutKast emergence in the late-90’s.
dreams don't pay no bills.

In just four years, they’ve gone from producing beats in their family’s living room in the hopes for the glory to working with some of the hottest young artists in lavish studios reserved for the industry leaders. To date, the brothers have worked with emerging artists such as Bryson Tiller, BJ The Chicago Kid and Montana of 300.
At the ripe old ages of 19 and 20, Dami and Ade are creating their own fast lane in a city where the H-O-V Lane is always the move. Based on their current path, they are well on their way to be two of the hottest producers out of Atlanta for years to come. With a production team that resembles 808 Mafia, they plan on becoming the go to name for artists looking for the next Billboard chart topper.
We sat down with Ade & Dami to see what motivates them through the long nights in the studio, how they manage college while chopping up the music their friends will soon party to and where they are headed from here.
Question: Who do you look up to for music inspiration?
Dami: Honestly, my brother. It’s a musical competition in their house.
Ade: I look up to Kanye West as a musical inspiration. I like his “My Twisted Dark Fantasy” CD the most.
Question: Who would you love to work with?
Dami: PartyNextDoor. He’s just dope right now.
Ade: Pusha T. His style is inline with the music that I’m making.
Question: What was your favorite song of the year?
Dami: “Just Another Interlude” by Bryson Tiller
Ade: “Momma” by Kendrick Lamar off of “To Pimp A Butterfly”
Question: Take on Drake and Meek Mill situation?
Dami: People just love Drake. It’s honestly real hard to get at Drake because of the position that he’s in.
Ade: Everyone’s just riding Drake. Meek is a still a good artist. The people are gonna be back on the Meek bandwagon when Dreamchasers 4 drops.
Jordan: There should have just been Meek on the track, no other voices / no features. Classic battle rap: one on one.
Brandon: Meek tried to do too much. Should have spit quick facts, touched on Drake’s relationship with Serena all over three beats – that throwback Funkmaster Flex style. Rewind the dope lines three or four times in a row.
Question: Name an artist on the come up?
Dami: I vibe with Pouya. He’s an artist from Florida who definitely got bars.
Ade: I’m rockin’ with Travi$ Scott right now. You can see the Kanye influence.
