Cannabis Club ATL is a hip-hop group out of Decatur, Georgia. Comprised of four members (Fruitman, Trapacana, N.I.L.E, and Manal), each is unique in their own right, and together they bring a distinct sound to the urban airwaves.
The founding member, Fruitman wears many hats and is prominent in Atlanta’s underground artist movement. He is the visionary behind Money Tree Entertainment, a producer, writer and arranger.
Trapacana, born in Frankfurt, Germany, is a skilled performer and lyricist. He has had a love for music since a young age and looks for ways to incorporate new sounds into his work.
N.I.L.E began performing at 9 years old. His sound is highly influenced by real-life experiences and pains. He is a lyricist, producer and arranger.
The group’s only female member, Manal, is Australian-born and describes herself as “a Palestinian by way of Australia.” She is an experienced artist whose talents have taken her all over the world and now Atlanta. She brings an R&B sound to the group that organically balances with the rap sound.
Cannabis Club ATL released their controversial mixtape Hellraiser at midnight on Easter Sunday.
They are not raising hell to cause trouble, but to inspire listeners to free themselves.The message behind Hellraiser is the death of fear, envy, lust, greed, racism and inequality. In that death, they hope to resurrect complete freedom to speak your mind. This is especially needed because we live in a world and time where it is more acceptable to be politically correct than to speak your truth. The group carries a message that the masses can relate to. They want to break the chains of negativity, hate and self-defeat.
The single “When You Coming Home” produced by Zaytoven will be hitting the air waves in early April and the entire Hellraiser mixtape is available on iTunes.
