Family Reunion.

Where are Rashad, New New, Ant and Esquire now? If we had to guess based on T.I.’s IG posts (@troubleman31), we’d guess gearing up or we’d go so far as to say filming ATL 2, the sequel to Chris Robinson’s coming-of-age film, ATL.

In the Will Smith, Dallas Austin, et al, produced flick, we followed teenagers from Atlanta who were graduating high school. They liked hanging out at Cascade, the skating rink, and had to figure out how to adjust to a new life that requires more skills than heels, grapevines and moonwalks (i.e., roller skating tricks.)

T.I., who played Rashad, has been teasing the coming of a sequel for the past two years on social. He captioned a photo in 2015, “#ATL2 Get Ready.”

This Labor Day weekend, he posted the photo of a few of the cast members, Lauren London (New New), twins Khadijah Haqq McCray (Veda) and Malika Haqq (Star) mobbin’. His caption read: “Family Reunion.”

Just a few days before, he basically confirmed what fans have hoped for. He writes: “Shad & New New #ATL2🎥 #OTW“, which can be translated, ATL 2 is on the way!
