DJ Toomp gives Stanza a 'One Way Ticket'

"One Way Ticket" (Prod by DJ Toomp)

We've championed Stanza before (in last year's music issue) for embodying Atlanta's authentic sound, but his latest collabo takes the cake. The producer behind his new track, "One Way Ticket" is none other than DJ Toomp — the same man who put old-school Atlanta's MC Shy D in the trunk (Comin' Correct in ’88), T.I. on the charts ("What You Know") and Kanye in the clouds ("Can't Tell Me Nothing").

Always one to reach back, Toomp's co-sign of Stanza comes as no surprise. And with Stanza flowing on top of Toomp's top-flight production, you get a sense of the kind of hip-hop this city could be known for again if the insular industry walls that keep mainstream Atlanta separated from the underground were to ever come tumbling down. Hopefully this is the beginning of fruitful partnership between two A-town originals.

(And if that's Stanza singing the bridge on this one, dude's vocals are as sick as his flow.)
