Jermaine Dupri features 11Alive reporter's 'Welcome to Atlanta' remix


ATLANTA — If you've grown up anywhere in the south, it's basically automatic. When you hear those iconic words "Welcome to Atlanta," you immediately know how the next lines go.

The track, over time, has become like an unofficial theme song for the city, and in the days leading up to the Super Bowl in Atlanta, it's (basically) been on repeat. Jermaine Dupri even performed it at Super Bowl LIVE, the free concert series produced by him.

But the song is so iconic that it's hardly ever been remixed (except for that Falcons' remix with Luda) - until now. And we bet you've never heard one like this.

11Alive's "Why Guy" Jerry Carnes was just messing around the newsroom with co-worker Neima Abdulahi when she caught his county music riff. 

"Welcome to Atlanta, where the player's play. And we ride on the streets every day. Big cows, big bulls big gangsters rolling. And the rodeo don't start 'til 8 in the morninggg."

Somehow, the video made its way all the way to Dupri himself - who posted the clip to Twitter and Instagram, where it's already been viewed thousands of times.

While Jerry did apologize for singing "so off key," as a self-proclaimed fan of Dupri, we're sure he's still feeling like this on the inside for the feature:
