At this stage in the game, Atlanta has become the heart of hip-hop culture. Countless legends have paved the way for today's current crop of chart-dominating artists, from Future to Migos to J.I.D. Yet we can't forget about the OGs who paved the way. Today, T.I. took to Instagram to celebrate some of his city's key players. Never one to hoard accolades, Tip held it down for a pair of ATL icons, the legendary Ludacris and Jeezy.
"Be Clear," he begins, via Instagram. "these faces along with a host of others (that look like US) laid the foundation for the infrastructure/artistic ecosystem you now know as Atlanta. THIS OUR SH*T & WE RUN THIS CITY!!!! Don’t get it FU*K’d UP!!! We’ll adjust the temperature to make it as HOT or COLD as we see fit. If we ain’t wit it... it ain’t SH*T!!!! Sincerely - King"
Though all three have slowed with regards to their musical output, Tip, Luda, and Jeezy remain some of the game's most iconic names. With the Super Bowl going down in their hometown, it's no surprise that such a storied trifecta has united under a single banner. Respect to Tip, Jeezy, and Ludacris for staying consistent, and for everything they've provided to the game at large.
