CityGuide - 5 surviving hip-hop haunts

A shortlist of ATL's rap-related cultural landmarks

Welcome to Atlanta, where terrestrial radio is currently ruled by not one, not two, but three old-school hip-hop stations. Now that the Southern rap capital is sporting varicose veins, it’s high time we map out some of the legendary rap-related cultural haunts still standing in this town. Of course, a list like this feels incomplete without mourning such dearly defunct hot spots as the West End’s Club 559 or the original Shyran’s Showcase, Midtown’s Earwax Records or Little Five Points’ Satellite Records, Jellybeans Skating Rink in Ben Hill or Frozen Paradise in College Park. Far from an exhaustive list, consider this a starter kit of hip-hop stops that once nurtured or continue to preserve the culture.
