"When a rapper's rapping, you should be able to smell the dope cooking."

In the first episode of our new 10-part series on Atlanta, host Thomas Morton meets longtime stick-up boy Curtis Snow (Snow On Da Bluff) while explaining what Atlanta means and why it's become the center of drug trafficking and rap music. Later, we find ourselves in iconic Patchwerk Studios with Black Mafia Family's Bleu Davinci. He explains the rise and fall of BMF, the city's scene over the last decade, and what he thinks it takes to make it today. After a game of pool, we head to the strip club to meet Migos.

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

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.
