Many folks in the heart of Atlanta were upset that the Atlanta Braves a few years ago abandoned Turner Field and moved to the suburbs (even though Truist Park’s mailing address still lists it in Atlanta).
One TikTok explainer who goes by the name The Classiiics provides a more detailed explanation of Omeretta’s definition while noting that he is from Stone Mountain but when an outsider asks him where he’s from, he says “Atlanta” because it’s easier. But when he’s around locals, he says he’s from Stone Mountain, not Atlanta.
So far, her YouTube video has landed about 278,000 page views as of Monday morning and was No. 15 on YouTube “trending music.”
As TMZ noted, she basically said some R&B and rap stars considered native Atlantans are not native Atlantans. Examples include Ludacris, 2Chainz and Monica (all from College Park), both members of Outkast (East Point), Donald Glover (Stone Mountain), Lil Yachty (Mableton), Omari Hardwick (Decatur) and Migos (Lawrenceville).
Exceptions: Future and Ciara (Kirkwood), Lil Baby (Oakland City), T.I. (Bankhead) and Gucci Mane (East Atlanta).
Here are a sample of social media reactions:
Omeretta basically said Monica, Ludacris, 2 Chainz, Young Joc, & OutKast aren’t from Atlanta.
