D

onald Glover’s brainchild Atlanta has finally arrived and YES it’s pretty damn good. Last night viewers were not only treated to one, but two episodes for last night’s premiere. If you didn’t catch it Atlanta is a dark comedy that follows two cousins Earnest Marks (Donald Glover) and rapper Alfred ‘Paper Boi’ Miles (Brian Tyree). We watch them hilariously try to navigate through the Atlanta hip-hp music scene so they can better the lives of their families. The first episode is provided for you above just in case you missed it.

Making it in the hip-hop industry proves to be no easy task as the two encounter trouble immediately when they get locked up after an encounter in a parking lot leads to a shooting. From there it’s nonstop laughs as these two try to make the best of their given situations all the while encountering random fellow Atliens along the way.
