I can't think of too many videos actually filmed on the streets of Atlanta. That was more the case in the 90s/early 00s with Goodie Mobb and Outkast, but we haven't see too many shots of the city since Atlanta became a powerhouse. NYC by comparison has many many more.
Yea, Rae Sremmurd. My bad.

Shooting videos around the way is the norm today. I will admit that shooting videos in clubs, malls, mansions, etc are probably just as common.

Yeah I do not agree. You knew what the crunk sound was based off of and Memphis get buck/crunk sound was way darker than anything that came from Atlanta.

I don't think videos are really the norm anymore. It's not like the 80s and 90s where most people would watch videos all day. I don't think MTV even shows music videos anymore.

I still remember watching the "World Premiere" of the Triumph video with Kurt Loder. Still the dopest song without a hook to ever come out.

I'm sure NYC has far more but they still shoot quite a few on location in Atlanta. There are others but these immediately come to mind.

Then you had Jazzy Pha, which was similar to the Dungeon Family. Actually back then, Atlanta had a very distinct sound; today, however, everywhere else is adopting Atlanta's sound, so it doesn't seem as unique anymore. It goes to show how influential Atlanta has become.
Atlanta Sound?

Ahh, Total Request Live circa 1998. That song was number one on that show for a MINUTE.

Yeah, the gap between the number of videos showing Atlanta and the number showing NYC is probably wider than the gap between Midtown Atlanta and Midtown Manhattan in the number of skyscrapers.

ATL is coming out with so much music right now compared to NYC, that less than half of the videos could show ATL's skyline, and it will still triple the number of videos showing NYC.

ATL took rap from NYC, now it has taken movies from Hollywood.
