College Park rapper Ketchup's rumbling TM-88-produced street anthem "Flood The Block" has quickly been gaining steam in Georgia and beyond. The song, and it's rasp earworm-y battle cry of flooooood the block!, were inspired from the trap rapper's experience growing up on Atlanta's Southside. "The life I live brought this song into play," he explained in an email to FADER, adding that PeeWee Longway was recruited for this first official remix because, "Me and PeeWee Longway had a lot in common—young and running shit, and the music is facts. Let's just say real recognize real." Turn the volume up, and hit play below. "Flood The Block"—both the original and the remix—will be featured on BMB's Change The Game compilation, which drops tomorrow.
