My name is Georgwuan Atkins, and I’m the up-and-coming hip hop artist Pretty Boy. I’m 22, born 9/26/1990 in Troy, NC, and I’ve had a passion for music my whole life. I represent the next generation of hip hop, with my biggest inspirations being Tupac, Biggie, Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Nas, and Jay-Z.
I’m with FTB Records, and my songs are featured on the compilation albums Dollar and a Dream and That Part Vol. 1. Currently I have three singles being promoted heavily: No Way Around It, How I Feel, and Purple Rain. These singles and more are available for download on iTunes and at www.FTBRECORDS.com. My website home is www.FTBRECORDS.com/PrettyBoy.
I’ve worked with a number of hip hop artists in both North and South Carolina including Y-Stella, Hot Flow, MOE, Hornet, BTR, Spank the Great, Yung Ziggy, Chezzy Boy, Kul Ray, J Rich, Tre Black, and JD. I’ve been featured on Coast to Coast Official DJ Insane’s “Str8 Drop No Flexx Vol 4” mixtape.
I live in Charlotte, NC, and have performed in several area clubs like Scandalos, Club Faces, and Excelsior.
The truth in my music is real. When I write and perform, I draw from the pain of growing up in a drug dealing environment, and the weight I always felt as the oldest of 5 kids in a single parent home.
Joining the FTB team has really helped me to grow and expand as an artist and a person, and every day I strive to perfect my talent and stay true with my words. With a lifetime of experience to draw from, I’m only getting started!
