T.I. Killer Mike The Dream Atlanta celebrities speaking on protest

If Atlanta’s most famous hip-hop stars want to participate in activism, they’ll have to reckon with their own elite statuses

While it’s certainly possible to both empathize with protesters and feel pained to see the city in chaos, Atlanta's mainstream hip-hop artists also benefit financially from encouraging peace. As entrepreneurs and longtime ambassadors of a city that is a hub for Black businesses, their economic success and the continued growth of Atlanta are indisputably linked. Even if they came from the Black working class and genuinely wish to advocate for them, refusing to acknowledge this reality dilutes their messages.

What happened yesterday in Atlanta

Starting around 3 p.m. from Centennial Olympic Park, young and old activists holding signs and chanting the names of black people killed by police marched south toward the CNN Center and through downtown before ending at the Georgia Capitol. Then they marched back toward Centennial Olympic Park where APD officers corralled the crowd in front of CNN Center. Around 7 p.m., the peaceful march and protest changed in tone as scuffles and confrontations between some protesters and police escalated into a relatively small number of protesters setting a police car on fire and spray painting the CNN Center.
