ABOUT THE SERIES
‘Atlanta Made Us Famous’ is an ongoing photo series that highlights the women who play an important role in the Atlanta hip-hop scene. In American hip-hop culture, strip clubs like Magic City in Atlanta are the launch pad for hit records and superstar careers, and the dancers are an essential part of the scene.
Powerful women in terms of representation and their actions. Here, a few prejudices and clichés are firmly debunked with great pleasure. These women seem to consciously choose to withdraw from expectations, which is what makes them so powerful.
