Sherwood Marty, the 22-year-old rapper with a clutch of online hits and a bunch of hardened-but-catchy hooks, is probably going to be Baton Rouge's next nationwide sensation. Last year's "Sherwood Baby" has already turned into a sleeper anthem in his hometown, and its video has racked up two million plays on YouTube. His Lil Baby collaboration, "Day in My Hood" turned the familiar, Auto-Tuned trap tropes into something fresh. On his latest single, "Way Up," premiering above, he knows he's on the come-up. "I'm thankin' God I ain't still got my old ways / A whole lotta shit done changed since the old days," he raps over Mouse On Tha Track's beat. Watch the video for the track at the top of the page.
