Atlanta Pimps Make Huge Profits

The survey revealed that 65 percent of the pimps in the Atlanta study group were black as well as 33 percent of the sex workers. This figure was second only to the Latino pimp population of 11 percent of the pimps and 10 percent being Latino sex workers. The report also stated that pimps are technologically savvy and use social networking to stay ahead of law enforcement.

An Urban Institute study of sex trafficking from 2003–2007 ranks Atlanta as the No. 1 city in the nation for sex trafficking. The study estimates that pimps in Atlanta make as much as $33,000 a week. The study examined sex trafficking in eight cities: Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Kansas City, Miami, Seattle, San Diego, Calif., and Washington, D.C., to try to determine the size and scope of human trafficking and its economic impact. The results are startling and offer a dark view of Atlanta, the home of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Emoni - "Talk It"

Recently Atlanta rapper Emoni released his new single, "Talk It." After years of being behind the scenes and frequenting some of the most talked about circles in ATL, Emoni has emerged as the next big artist primed to expand his brand to stardom in 2021. "Talk It is one of the first songs I ever did that I felt comfortable pushing musically. I've been making music for a long time but I never put anything out," Emoni explained. "Talk It is one of the first songs where I really liked the vibe and it's a real Atlanta song. It's the type of stuff that goes on where I'm from and it's a song where no matter what anyone else thinks I really like the song." 

 Playing his role behind the scenes Emoni began putting in the work as manager but transitioned to an artist after his friend and client PNF Rocky was killed. "I wasn't always an artist, I started off behind the scenes and everywhere I went people would always say I look like an artist. Paid In Full Rocky is dead now but that was one of my homies that I would always do music with, and I was more on the management side of things working with him." Emoni explained. "Then I started recording the music but I wasn't putting it out and I was just working at it for the last year and a half and I just been pushing the HighEnd brand." Idolizing Jay Z with aspirations to become a CEO, and respecting Nipsey Hussle with hopes to have an impact on his community, Emoni has always focused on putting in the work to be great.

DotCom: One of the best unknown recording/mixing engineers in Atlanta

DotCom: One of the best unknown recording/mixing engineers in Atlanta

Stephen Farrow, who goes by the musician name “DotCom,” is a GRAMMY-nominated recording and mix engineer, music industry veteran. Originally from Montgomery, Alabama, he has since become a part of the Atlanta music scene, getting his start within the hip-hop genre in the early 2000’s.

His original interest in the music world began at a young age. Having grown up surrounded by music, and with a gospel musician uncle who would let him experiment on mixers and sound-boards, he first began creating his music with friends in high school. Around this time, an experience in a Birmingham, Alabama studio left him hooked and determined to pursue music for a living. From that first taste, he fell in love with the different knobs, buttons, and faders, and all of the effects that they could achieve. He began a deep-dive into music creation, learning about beats, vocals, mixing, and everything in-between. From there he went on to go to Omnitech for digital media, and in 2014 became a recording engineer for Quality Control Studios. He has since worked with artists such as Cardi BNick CannonLil YachtyMigos, and more.
