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.
Astonish has been releasing music to build up the suspense for his upcoming project “The Who Tape.” Mission Accomplished! “I Wonder” is just another reason why Astonish should be an artist you listen to daily. Navarro lays a hot 16 to compliment Astonish also. This combo was definitely a very enjoyable one. Slot A was behind the production of this track. Slot A produces for Add2, who is signed to 9th Wonder. Jameson Brenner from Zeremela Band adds some guitar strings that complete this beat.
