Hailing from Atlanta, GA EarthGang is comprised of Johnny Venus and WowGr8 – they both meton the first day of school, solidifying their friendship over their school burning down (true story!)and a love for music that doesn’t follow the rules. Instead, the young artists embody the best ofthe new generation in music—and plenty of critics and fans alike have taken note. Marrying lean,sharp-eyed lyricism with Southern-fried soul, every song arrives fully formed, hitting hard andlanding jokes while also delving deep into political issues, especially topics of race. They spenttheir college days recording in dorm rooms and collaborating with local producers when they werediscovered – and then signed – by J Cole to his Interscope imprint, Dreamville.Having released mixtapes and one off singles – the guys hit a stride with their 3-EP project whichwas inspired by The Wizard of Oz . EPs Rags (Scarecrow), Robots (Tinman) and recently releasedRoyalty (the lion) precedes EarthGang’s debut album which will be out this Summer calledMirrorland . Bursting with energy and having garnered a live following, the ATLiens have beenfeatured by the likes of Pitchfork , Hypebeast , Highsnobiety , Hot New Hip Hop , Consequence ofSound , Uproxx , Pigeons & Planes and more. Stretching beyond the “indie hip-hop” label they’vebeen brandished with, EarthGang are ready to reach a wider audience with sharp-slick lyrics thatcut through the hazy blur of ratchet rap and an avid interest in never settling or resting on theirlaurels.
