On February 14, 2021, Wednesday, Ryan Upchurch spilled the details of his upcoming rap album called Mud To Gold. The official tracklist of his new album is detailed on this post via Instagram including the titles “Last Year” and “Melatonin.”
Upchurch’s newest album is set to be released on March 9, 2021. He produced this alongside Thomas Toner. All the songs were recorded from 2019 to 2020 in Franklin, Tennessee. The 14-track album boasts three song collaborations with fellow American rappers.
He’s got “Side Road Fresh Remix” featuring Paul Wall, “Trainwreck” featuring Lil Wyte, and “Blame Us” featuring Jellyroll and Merkules.
In his Instagram post, he noted how it’s been so long since he last released a rap album. He ended the caption by calling out on the hip-hop community because “the country boy is coming for y’all.”
However, it’s worth noting that his latest chart-topping album was just released last year in April. Everlasting Country even peaked at No.6 on the Billboard Top Country Albums.
Meanwhile, the latest album announcement post garnered 31,000 likes, only a week after it came out.
His collaborators, Jelly Roll and Merkules quickly jumped over the comment section hyping up the scene and thanking Upchurch for this opportunity.
Originally known as a comedian, he was known for his tagline “raise hell, eat cornbread.” His music career started when he released a country rap song in 2015 called “Cheatham County.” He was considered a breakout artist as his single peaked at No.7 on the Billboard Heatseekers Songs charts.
