Now is just a good a time as any as, ever since the 96 Olympics was brought there-the city of Atlanta took on a whole new landscape and meaning. And since then, has been pretty much the place to be where even before then, its culture is, and always will live in the hearts of Atlanta natives (despite the turnout and turn up of today).

With several more films since added to his resume, T.I. is set to make a glorious return to his acting origins with ATL 2. The rapper/actor announced the sequel on Instagram today, with director Chris Robinson confirming the news with a slightly different filter.
