In 2018, Archie Eversole wrote the track “United We Conquer” as the anthem for the soccer team Atlanta United. “A staple in the Atlanta hip-hop scene, Archie adopted Atlanta United before our first season and continued to be one of our club’s most fervent supporters,” the team said in a statement after his untimely death, per The Kansas City Star.
Just before the Atlanta United anthem was dropped, the “Rollin Hard” artist spoke about what went into crafting the song, and how his hometown influenced him musically. “Atlanta is the heart of all the music I’ve ever created,” he told Fox 5 Atlanta at the time. “We a high energy city,” Eversole added. The rapper mentioned how he tried to distill the feeling of attending the high-octane soccer matches into the anthem. “The energy level is amazing … All I did was bottle that energy into what I call a musical creation and let them hear it.”
Sadly, Eversole will never get the chance to craft another hit for the city he loved so dearly.
