Cruisin' in the ATL
On Cruisin’ in the ATL, DJ extraordinaire Speakerfoxxx, AKA Nilan, talks to Atlanta’s hottest artists and plays the newest in Southern rap, interspersing her interviews with mini-mixes as sweat-inducing as her notorious sets at El Bar. A lifelong ATLien with ties to Yelawolf’s Slumerican crew and the Dungeon Family, Speakerfoxxx started out as a singer and guitarist in a punk band, Sex Kitten, before hitting clubs in high school. Inspired by moments like Don Cannon spinning a J Dilla tribute set, she taught herself how to DJ and produce. From Bikini Kill to Future to Missy Elliott to reggae and dub, her wide-ranging musical interests can be heard bumping through her mixtapes: 2011’s Dope Boy Anthems, 2012’s incendiary clapback Dopegirl Anthems and 2016’s ripping Girls In the Yard, recorded with partner in crime Bosco at Outkast’s Stankonia Studio.
