Last night… VH1 ROCK DOCS Presented “ATL: THE UNTOLD STORY OF ATLANTA’S RISE IN THE RAP GAME” with Ludacris, Larenz Tate, R. Kelly and More!
The 90 min documentary will premiere THIS Tuesday at 10 PM ET/PT. It investigates the rich, complex and untold story of Atlanta’s fascinating rise to the top of the rap industry, which created a major force within American music. The film chronicles the decisions of the city’s forefathers in post-civil rights Atlanta as they created an environment for African-American arts and culture to thrive, which set the scene for a local hip-hop scene to emerge.
This documentary is written, directed, edited and executive produced by Brad Bernstein, Rick Cikowski and Brandon Dumlao for Corner of the Cave Media. Executive producers also include Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Chaka Zulu, Jeff Dixon, Aiyisha T. Obafemi, Jason Jeter and Bernard Parks. Executive producers for VH1 include Warren Cohen, Brad Abramson and Stephen Mintz.
In Conjunction with Atlanta’s renowned “Luda Day Weekend”, Corner of the Cave Media & Ebony Son Entertainment hosted the exclusive Atlanta theatrical premiere. Guest had the opportunity to indulge on some of the city’s finest and innovative hors d’oeuvres provided by Dat Chef LLC and Sweet Shots Cupcakes as well as hand-crafted cocktails powered by Avion Tequila, all while taking a first look at the “ATL Rise” photo exhibit displayed in the main lobby of the theatre.
Also in attendance: Veteran Atlanta DJ, DJ Infamous, Shanti Das, Letoya Luckett and Eudoxie! I wasn’t able to stay very long because I JUST got back from VA and needed to get home to my boys. Take a look at all the fun pics I snapped.
