Watch: Ludacris, Jermaine Dupri remix ‘Welcome to Atlanta’ for Atlanta Falcons

In 2001, Ludacris and Jermaine Dupri teamed up to share their pride for Atlanta with the song, “Welcome to Atlanta.” The song became a national hit and eventually became Atlanta’s hip-hop version of Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York.”

Fast-forward 17 years, the Atlanta Falcons have called the hip-hop legends to do a remix of the song to coincide with the opening of the 2018 season.

The song features references to old-school Atlanta Falcons players as well as the current stars such as Julio Jones and Matt Ryan.
