Thanks to shows like Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta and Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta, outsiders only see the city’s upscale side. In their docu-series, Noisey shows that there is more to the ATL than fine eateries, shopping and more socialities than you can count. In the first installment of Welcome To Atlanta, Noisey explores the city’s major drug trade, made easy by their roads deemed the”Spaghetti Junction,” which allows access to any city on the east coast. After watching former D-boy Curtis Snow cook crack and define Atlanta’s “trap music,” Thomas Morton discusses the rise and demise of Detroit-turned-Atlanta drug gang the Black Mafia Family and what their last soldier standing, rapper Bleu Davinci, is up to these days. Morton also paid the strip club a visit with ATL trio Migos.
