6. Jermaine Dupri and Ludacris "Welcome to Atlanta" (2001)
Producer: Jermaine Dupri
Album: Word of Mouf
Here's the only tour of Atlanta that you need-Ludacris and Jermaine Dupri lyrically directing a tour bus through their hometown on this 2002 chart-topping hit off Word of Mouf. Luda takes the first verse where he employs lines like "Did you forget your fuckin' manners/I'm Bruce with Banners," a play on how he can become like the Hulk if you piss him off enough. Or "I'm big paper like pancakes/stackin' 'em up/In fact I'm slapping' em up/Cadillac'n the truck" where his voice is just as creative as his lyrics.
Dupri follows suit on the second verse with the most legendary "I'm the M.B.P./Most Ballin-ist Player" line on the track. While the team effort is noted, Ludacris kills his verse and shows love to his hometown most notably on this track. The two followed up on a "Coast 2 Coast" remix featuring Murphy Lee, Snoop Dogg, and Diddy, which went in the books as one of the proudest hometown anthems in hip-hop, spanning Atlanta to New York to St. Louis and Long Beach, California. —Lauren Nostro
