Atlanta’s hip-hop scene is booming with new music from well-known acts like Migos and Lil Yachty. But there’s a long list of up-and-comers bringing fresh sounds to the city.

Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson speaks with Branden Peters ( @BrandenLSK) and Maurice Garland of the Atlanta-based podcast Day 1 Radio, about some of those artists, including Yogii, EarthGang and Sir Foster.
