Last week was definitely our coldest days & I had the pleasure of kickin shit with Atlanta’s coldest new rapper, Ben Pimpin. Ben Pimpin is an Atlanta native strait from Simpson Rd (Simpset, Westside is the lingo). Now because I know Mr Pimpin I jumped right in.
Miss Atown: Ben, I know you’ve had a sac since we met a few years ago. Money was never the issue & you were always a young entrepreneur, why did u decide to rap?
Ben Pimpin: Because of my passion for music it ain’t about da money
Miss Atown: Since your passion is so strong for the music, what influences your music (the songs you make) ?
Ben Pimpin: My music is influence threw my life and every day experiences
Miss Atown: Ok Ben, I get it, everyday experiences but what makes your sound, flow, and delivery separate from the rest? What do you have that the competition lacks?
Ben Pimpin: I have the ability to make u see what I’m saying, a verbal visual I paint pictures not many can.
Miss Atown: How well do u know the music industry?
Ben Pimpin: like da back of my hand, very well I been wanting this my whole life.
Miss Atown: Have you ever felt like giving up Ben?
Ben Pimpin: No because I know deep down inside I will succeed if I give it 100%. I could always rapp effortlessly with out trying.
Miss Atown: How well do you know me, & what caused you to reach out me?
Ben Pimpin: You are a good friend of mine I’ve known for years and I reached out to her because I knew she was gone be straight up with me about my music friendship or not plus u gotta go threw Atown anyway to get on in Atlanta.
Young Goldie (@IamYoungGoldie), a teenage star-in-the-making, is looking to put a new shine on the city and make the world think differently about the place he calls home.
Whether it’s in fictional dramas like The Wire or real life news coverage from CNN, the city of Baltimore, Maryland is usually shown to be overcast with clouds of gloom. But now, those clouds may finally have a silver lining. Or better yet, a golden one.
Known as the crab capital of the world, Goldie faced crabs in a figurative sense as he struggled to get out of the barrel that is Baltimore’s West side. Witnessing first hand the ills of drugs, poverty and even seeing people die right in front of him, Goldie decided at a young age that he wanted his story to be different.
“The struggle was my motivation to do better,” says the rapper who learned much of his discipline from boxing in his spare time. “I want to be somewhere in life.”
Rapping since the age of four, Young Goldie realized that music could be his ticket out of the ‘hood when he met fellow Baltimore-natives singer/songwriter Mario and rapper King Los. Hearing encouraging words from artists who emerged from the same streets he was looking to escape from motivated him to follow in their footsteps and eventually leave his own.
“After meeting them, I started making my own videos, flyers and throwing parties to promote myself and my music,” he says. “No one helped me but my mother.”
His mother’s helping hand led to his music catching the ear of music industry veteran Tony Austin. After she played some music for Austin, a former Def Jam A&R, who has made it his priority to grow Baltimore’s presence in Hip Hop, he jumped at the chance to sign Goldie to his Austin Music Group imprint.
“He has that ‘it’ factor,” says Austin who has worked with the likes of DMX and Russell Simmons. “When I seen the kid, I knew he was superstar. I feel like Quincy Jones when he discovered Michael Jackson. I feel like this kid is amazing. We haven’t seen an artist do what he does in a very long time.”

Citing Meek Mill and Chris Brown as some of his main influences, Goldie offers a combination of reality rap and charisma that has seen him featured on Hotnewhiphop.com and CNN. His current single “No Problems” is rapidly becoming a city-wide anthem that has him on his way to becoming everything that his name represents.
“The name comes from kingdom thinking,” he says. “I think I’m the best at what I do.”
