Not Afraid: The Shady Records Story Ft. Eminem, 50 Cent, & Dr. Dre from Complex.
The new wave of Atlanta stretches beyond the reach of Gucci Mane. The last year has seen the rise of a more alternative and bizarre sound, led the likes of Awful Records with a guy named iLoveMakonnen at the forefront. His smash single “Club Goin’ Up on a Tuesday” was remixed by Drake after its release last summer, and went on to be nominated for a Grammy. Since, he’s released songs with Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Gucci Mane, and more. In episode seven of Noisey Atlanta, Thomas enters Makonnen’s strange world, which is driven by peace, love, and mushrooms.

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.

If there’s one thing TOKiMONSTA taught us since she graduated from the 2010 edition of the Academy, it’s that she’s never one to settle. Linking up with the mighty Brainfeeder empire the following year, and signing with the Ultra conglomerate to drop off her previous full-length, her latest effort sees the LA-based producer jumpstart her very own Young Art imprint. In this talk at the 2014 Red Bull Music Academy in Tokyo, she goes in-depth about the making of the new album.
