Johnny Cinco has quickly become one of my favorite hitmakers out of Atlanta, a city with more than enough of them to choose from. He woke a ton of people (including myself) up with “They Gave The Wrong Young Nigga Money” last summer, and more recently, delivered “Ain’t I” which is one of my favorite tracks of the new year, even though it hasn’t gotten nearly as much attention as it should have by now.
Regardless, he dropped a new video for “Automation” last week, and it’s another sharp, well-produced banger fueled by a lively WillAFool instrumental and animated rhymes. It’s a selection off the remastered version of his Cinco mixtape but more importantly, another promising sign of what’s to come in the near future. His album #JohnPopi is on the way; stay tuned.
