Dupri joins with music executive Michael Mauldin as Executive Producer.
What Is Magic City’s Significance?
Magic City is a strip club in Atlanta that’s become mythologized in the local hip-hop scene. Songs written about the club include Future’s "Magic" and Jeezy’s "Magic City Monday," and the club has been name-dropped on countless tracks. A YSL trial attorney even avoided jail time by buying wings from the club earlier this year.
"Magic City is a second home for me," Jermaine Dupri told the AJC. "It’s the one place where celebrities, hustlers, politicians, and Atlanta locals all come together. I’ve watched it evolve over the years from a local joint to an internationally recognized spot. It’s about time we tell this story the right way."
