Young Thug seems to believe he is putting out not only quality rap music, but he also believes he is putting out the best. He made a comment that he was the Michael Jackson of the game, and he subliminally suggested that Future was Tito. It must suck to think you are MJ of the Atlanta to mainstream rap scene, and you are really just Randy. He said Future's music couldn't ever sound anywhere near his. What are your thoughts? Is Young Thug putting out the best quality music out of all southern artists these days (chuckles)?
(AllHipHop News) Yung Joc may go down in history for only being known for one hit, but that one hit turned out to be very profitable for the Atlanta rapper. During an interview with DJ Smallz Eyes, Joc revealed how much money he earned from his 2006 triple platinum smash "It's Goin' Down."
The star of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta revealed he recently made between $10,000 and $15,000 for a licensing payout on "It's Goin' Down." Joc also discussed how having recurring records on the radio still brings in profits for an artist years later.

The COOGI brand partnered with PURE Atlanta and One Grand Gallery for Ready 2 Die, a tribute to the legacy of the Notorious B.I.G. and the relaunch of COOGI on Thursday, Oct 22nd. Lizzie PURE owner of PURE Atlanta said the collaboration was perfect for the store because of its longtime affiliation with Hip Hop.
"I'm a Hip Hop enthusiast and PURE has always supported the Hip Hop community. Doing this event with COOGI allowed us to be a part of the brands re-launch and I loved the idea of connecting with the art community," Lizzie PURE says.
The event consisted of selected pieces of art honoring the late Notorious BIG on display at PURE. Several guests purchased artwork which was managed by One Grand Gallery. Ready 2 Die welcomed an eclectic mix of Atlanta's art, fashion and Hip Hop community.

A shooting at T.I's restaurant, Scales 925, in Atlanta has left one man shot, TMZ reports. The incident reportedly started between five or six men Sunday night (Oct. 25) who were arguing. After the men were asked to leave the restaurant, the confrontation continued in the parking lot. Police say a man pulled out a gun and shot another man in the leg. The wounded man then fled the scene.
When police were responding to a 911 call about the shooting, they ended up pulling over the car that the shooting victim was in. Instead of cops later arresting the shooter, the victim ended up getting hauled off to jail. Police reportedly found 240 grams of marijuana and $6,000 in cash in the vehicle he was in.
He was arrested for possession of marijuana and reckless conduct. The victim claims he did not know the shooter. The entire incident was captured on surveillance cameras, which police are using to aid their search for the shooter.
