How about "Eastbound and Down" by Jerry Reed which was popularized by the movie Smokey and the Bandit.

Quote:
East bound and down, loaded up and truckin',
we're gonna do what they say can't be done.
We've got a long way to go and a short time to get there.
I'm east bound, just watch ol' "Bandit" run.

Keep your foot hard on the pedal. Son, never mind them brakes.
Let it all hang out 'cause we got a run to make.
The boys are thirsty in Atlanta and there's beer in Texarcana.
And we'll bring it back no matter what it takes.

The only thing that even mention ghetto was the Ghetto mafia group, you need to learn to say Hiphop and R&B or urban music. Those are some pretty urban lists you mean.

Yes, but that has nothing to do with my point.

Thankfully, Atlanta's popularity with the rap industry seems to be waning. These types of things do move in cycles. In the 1990s it was all about Compton. In the 2000s, it was Atlanta. I haven't heard many recent rap songs focus as much on Atlanta as they used to, which is great news. It helps that many of the Atlanta artists are in and out of jail -- TI, Gucci Mane -- and that Outkast broke up.
