Most folks don’t think about hip-hop when they think about Alpharetta.
Tech companies, the Avalon, North Point Mall and good schools typically come to mind before rap references.
But there’s a few MC’s out there who thought this North Fulton city had enough swag to name drop it in a rhyme.
Here’s five times where rappers have mentioned the growing north of Atlanta suburb in a song:
