2022 has just started and yet Atl Jacob is responsible for Lil Baby’s “Right On,” which entered the top 100 songs chart at number 13. Moreover, as we speak, the hit song has been charted for 10 weeks now.
We can’t talk about Atl Jacob without talking about the rapper Future and his song “Wait for U” that was released on April 29th of this year. Indeed, the song, co-written with Drake, entered the chart at number one. By the way, it is the first number-one position for Future and the 10th for Drake. On this song, Atl Jacob has collaborated with the duo FNZ, who are also in our top 3 rap producers this week.
In an interview, Atl Jacob said that he made the beat a long time ago and wanted to give it to Future, but the rapper skipped it. Later, at Drake’s house, Future told Atl Jacob that he skipped the beat because he knew he was going to do something with it, but that he needed to listen to it over and over again, like it was a song.
