Ludacris & Jermaine Dupri Pay Homage To Falcons In New "Welcome To Atlanta" Remix



Ludacris and Jermaine Dupri team up for a new remix of their 2002 track "Welcome To Atlanta." The updated version of the anthemic track serves as an ode to their home NFL team, the Atlanta falcons.

"Atlanta, and the Falcons basically go hand in hand,” Dupri said via AtlantaFalcons.com. “We’ve always been a city that people tried to count out of being a city. I remember when I first started making music, there use to be these T-shirts that you could get at certain places that would say ‘London, Tokyo, Chicago and New York’ or something like that. That’s what they used to say on the front, they would never say ‘ATL.’ They would never say Atlanta."

"To be able to do a Falcons version of our hit song ‘Welcome to Atlanta’ is an opportunity of a lifetime,” Ludacris added. “Not just because we have a lasting impression and a timeless song that people identify with even coming to Atlanta, but now we have the opportunity to do the same thing for our team and the Falcons that we’ve been riding so long for."

Relating to winning the Superbowl, Ludacris believes the Falcons are not far off. "We are ‘this’ close,” said Ludacris. “This is our year. It’s not about how we fall, it’s about how we rise. The whole Brotherhood moniker that’s going on, I feel like everybody is really identifying with that and we feel like family and everybody is really coming together.”


The collaboration comes complete with an accompanying video, featuring plenty of cameos from Falcon stars past and present including Matt Ryan. Check it out below.
