Why You Should Pay Attention: The Atlanta rap scene is famous for celebrating the good life with no apologies, and you can add K Camp to the growing list. The video for the Marietta-raised 24-year-old's breakout "Money Baby" finds him clutching a wad of dollar bills as he cavorts with bikini models in a mansion pool. A second smash, "Cut Her Off," inspired remixes from Rick Ross, T.I. and Wiz Khalifa, earning K Camp a deal with Interscope. But his origins were far more modest: After abandoning plans to study business management at University of West Georgia, he spent years paying dues on Atlanta's talent show circuit. A regional hit with Mykko Montana on 2012's "Do It" turned disastrous when K Camp – as he claims – didn't get the proper co-writing recognition. But with Interscope re-releasing his mixtape In Due Time and "Cut Her Off" going viral as it soars up Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop charts, Camp is getting his rewards. "Atlanta's popping right now," he confirms.
He Says: "I did all that, man… Open mics, performing in different cities for a Ciroc bottle. Now they give me the Ciroc and that cash. We don't want just one Ciroc bottle no more. We want five bottles, and wings and Red Bull. We want all that, we want everything."
