Much has changed in Atlanta’s rap scene since Crime Mob released their breakout single, “Knuck If You Buck” back in 2004. Now a decade after the release of their last album, the pioneering crunk group has reunited and announced  new plans for 2017!

“Knuck If You Buck,” was the biggest song of their career and arguably the best song during that time frame. I think we all remember bouncing around the room or club to the beat. Since then, the group hasn’t released a single that can be considered an equivalent follow-up. During a recent concert over the weekend, sponsored by Atlanta’s radio show, the group did an interview with Big Tigger where they spoke about a brand new album that is coming this year.

“I’m excited and sad, but mostly excited,” Raven said on The View.

If you remember ‘That’s So Raven,’ then you remember Raven Symone played ‘Raven Baxter,’ who was a teenager who lived with her mom, dad and little brother, and would suddenly have psychic “visions” of the future throughout her day to day life.
