Atlanta duo EARTHGANG have released a deluxe version of their critically acclaimed record, Ghetto Gods.
Featuring five additional tracks ranging from remixes, new songs, and reimagined versions of album favorites, Ghetto Gods (Deluxe) brings along friends Wiz Khalifa, Curren$y, Smino, and Blxckie to add their flair to the songs.
Ghetto Gods (Deluxe) comes on the heels of the EARTHGANG’s appearance at Something In The Water Festival and their last show on their Biodeghettable Tour which took place in front of a hometown crowd in Atlanta, GA. The pair, who have been on tour all spring, will hit the road again this fall with legendary music group Gorillaz on their national U.S. stadium tour.
As part of the recently finished tour, EARTHGANG partnered with music discovery platform Pigeons & Planes to hand select a hometown hero in each city on the tour for a chance to open for the Atlanta duo.
Ghetto Gods, shared back in February to critical acclaim on the fronts of its cultural representation as well as its musical innovation, shines a spotlight on the neighborhoods that shaped EARTHGANG’s Olu and WowGr8.
“We know where we’re from,” Olu said. “We see the effect the pandemic has had on our neighborhoods. But we also see the beauty and the ingenuity and creativity that people have been able to foster from this.”
In November, the duo will head over to Europe where they’ll perform shows in Milan, Amsterdam, Manchester, Paris, Frankfurt, Prague, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Berlin, and more.
Recently, the duo was featured on the latest Dreamville compilation, D-Day: A Gangsta Grillz Mixtape — a surprise new project featuring founder and rap icon J. Cole along with the entire Dreamville roster.
The previously unannounced set boasts new solo material from Dreamville artists as well as collaborations and superstar cameos from across the rap game including ASAP Ferg, 2 Chainz, and Sheck Wes.
