ABOUT OLA RUNT
Ola Runt, an emerging artist from the Zone 6 neighborhood of Edgewood, Atlanta, has been quickly generating buzz in the city and beyond. He began developing his distinctive sound and lyricism in his early teens, cooking up in the studio, which his father built to get him off the streets, for nearly two years before releasing any music. He cites Gucci Mane, Boosie Badazz and NBA YoungBoy as inspirations. As Ola’s musical growth progressed, he started gaining attention from his neighborhood and local peers with tracks like “Brazy Story” Remix, “Monkey Bars” and the original version of “Feel Like Guwop,” which picked up organic airplay from local DJs. As the rest of Atlanta took notice, he continued building excitement with collaborations from Young Nudy and 645AR, while working on his debut EP. On March 13, 2020, Ola released his first body of work entitled Mama Tried, featuring standout production from Bankroll Gotit, Yung Tago and Yung Lando, and earning him co-signs from Lil Baby, 21 Savage, Meek Mill and Southside. After hearing the track, Gucci Mane took Ola under his wing as ‘The New 1017’ and included Ola as a featured artist on his So Icy Summer compilation album. The Atlanta music icon also executive produced Runt’s latest mixtape, Beggin For a Body [Front Street/Cinematic Music Group], which released on May 29, 2020 and includes a revamped version of “Feel Like Guwop” featuring Gucci himself. Atlanta is consistently breeding superstars, with the streets of Zone 6 specifically known as one of the meccas for street raised mega-talents. However you choose to define it, there’s a new wolf walking the Eastside streets.
