Trap titans T.I. and Jeezy brought the heat and a strong chance of snow to Atlanta’s famed Tabernacle for Amazon Music’s 50 & Forever City Sessions series celebrating 50 years of Hip-Hop.

The ageless legends ran through their classic catalogs with headliner Jeezy performing a series of smashes including “Go Crazy,” “Soul Survivor,” and “Get Ya Mind Right” that shook the building during his epic set.

Amazon Music’s latest star-studded series was launched to pay tribute to Hip-Hop’s monumental influence on music, culture, and society while bringing fans together to honor its undeniable legacy and champion the artists writing the next 50 years of Hip-Hop’s history.

Created by Rotation—the Hip-Hop and R&B branch of Amazon Music—in collaboration with creative agency Droga5, ’50 & Forever’ gives Hip-Hop its well-deserved flowers with curated events, livestreams, playlists, original content, and new music—spanning Amazon Music, Twitch, Audible, Prime Video, and Amp.

The buzzy series kicked off July 20 with some of Hip-Hop’s biggest names including Wale, Kid Cudi, Rick Ross, Clipse, and more.

Last weekend, Pusha T linked up with his brother Malice for a long-awaited Clipse reunion at Pier 17 in New York.
