More music is listened to today than ever before and hip-hop is the most streamed, watched and influential genre. Atlanta has become ground-zero for hip-hop artists and the city has an overwhelming influence on hip-hop music and culture. 

From Kris Kross to Future, for the past 30+ years many of hip-hop's most successful hip-hop artists and producers have come from Atlanta. This panel will include industry veterans and tastemakers that have helped cultivate the Atlanta music scene to discuss how the city became so influential and how it has maintained it's dominance in hip-hop music.
