The Atlanta rap scene is an electrifying and endlessly fascinating environment, and now VICE have given us an unprecedented look at its inner workings. The 10-part documentary series Noisey Chiraq brings viewers behind the scenes of this vibrant music culture with exclusive access to some of Atlanta’s biggest hip-hop stars, including 2 Chainz, Gucci Mane, Migos, Rich Homie Quan, Young Thug, Jeezy and many more emerging talents.
Noisey Chiraq takes us deep into the bad neighbourhoods where many of these artists come from – neighbourhoods in which trap houses are far from unheard of and gang rule is still rife. However it also captures the brilliance of this city in its depiction of how much potential can be found in such a supportive community. We see interviews with police officers, gang members and Curtis Snow as well as the ATL Twins – all revealing what it means for them to be part of such an influential cultural movement.
This documentary offers a unique insight into the soul of Atlanta hip-hop that we never could have expected to get anywhere else. Being able to experience the darker side but also the hope that exists within these communities is something truly special – something worth watching if you want a greater understanding of what makes this incredible city tick. So don’t miss out on your chance to watch Noisey Chiraq and explore one of America’s most creative music scenes!
