Music Issue 2010: Atlanta photographers shoot Atlanta musicians 

Young Jeezy, 2005 This was taken at Patchwerk studios before Jeezy's first solo album came out. It was at a time when there was a lot of excitement around Jeezy and everybody in Atlanta either had the Thug Motivation bootleg or was still listening to the first Trap or Die. I really just loved how he was getting a tattoo at the recording studio. I remember thinking, “I couldn't have set this up any better.” It's great because the guy giving the tattoo is Tuki Carter who is in the group Hollyweerd, which is on the complete other side of the spectrum of Atlanta hip-hop. — Diwang Valdez
