Watch “Welcome to Noisey Atlanta” | Trailer

The film-makers at Noisey have put together a very interesting trailer that shows off the music and entertainment scene in Atlanta. After doing a documentary style web series on Chicago (Noisey Chiraq) now they head to do the same in ATL. Where they see everyone from 2 Chainz to Gucci Mane this web series is slated to release on January 13th. Let us know what you think about the video in the comments!

 

From the makers of Noisey Chiraq, a new 10-part series documenting unprecedented access into the Atlanta rap scene. Hosted by Vice / HBO / Noisey’s Thomas Morton and directed by Andy Capper, the series stars artists like 2 Chainz, Gucci Mane, Migos, Rich Homie Quan, Young Thug, Jeezy, upcoming stars like the Grammy-nominated iLoveMakonnen, and also spends time with the new wave of super-producers like Mike Will Made-It (Miley Cyrus), Metro Boomin, and 808 Mafia.

The series goes behind the songs and into the trap houses, neighborhoods, problems, and solutions that have inspired the wheelhouse behind one of America’s most vibrant and influential music scenes. Also featuring appearances by the Atlanta Police Department, gang members, the ATL Twins and Curtis Snow (Snow On Da Bluff), we attempt to illustrate the complex and vibrant rap scene and what that culture means to the city.

Part 1 drops January 13th.

Vince Staples – Blue Suede

Vince Staples has got to be one of the most original and rawest rappers to come from the West Coast in recent memory and that is definitely evident with his newest song/video “Blue Suede”. The Long Beach emcee gives a stark introspective look at what life is like through his eyes over a track with menacing bass, hard hitting 808’s and a synthesizer that sounds like its straight out of a horror film. I’m not sure if Vince wants the listener to relish in the gang life with him or really see it for what it is but either way he raps with a tenacity that speaks to his ambition of being one of the best rappers ever.Cutthroat indeed.
