EDITOR’S NOTES

Crunkatlanta Magazine 2015

Who is Crunkatlanta? I am Eric aka Crunkatlanta & Promotewho.com - The Internet Promoter, the one that is in love with Hip Hop. Follow me on Twitter @crunkatlantaMag . Born and raised in Detroit, MI. Yep, I'm from Seven Mile Rd and GreenfieldWhuddup Doe!! My first inspiration to get involved in the industry was when I found out that nobody heard of any Detroit rappers outside of Detroit ( Michigan). My first gig was with a friend (“T”) that I assisted with promoting Cam’ron back when he was a lil chunky in 1997. From there I found what my purpose was supposed to be. My all time fantasy career was to become a quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons. Once that dream was cut short from not getting the response back from -tryouts and competition over the years. I became hooked on music and brand marketing. http://www.crunkatlanta.com ( Promo page )

CRUNKATLANTA MAGAZINE This was in Atlanta at Piedmont Park ( Downtown ) and it was labeled a suicide . Summer of 2016


Piedmont Park hanging victim was gay Midtown man Even though the death of this young man wasn’t what many had thought. Its still matters. This man took his life because of who he was. Being true to your self isn’t always what others wish to see. It’s not up to you to judge.

ALL LIVES MATTER


PIEDMONT PARK HANGING The young man that police said took his own life in Piedmont Park – a suicide that gained national attention and fueled social media outrage – was a 22-year-old LGBT college student who lived in Midtown and faced blowback from his family for being gay.

Michael George Smith Jr., a native of Hackensack, N.J., was found hanging from a tree near the Charles Allen Drive entrance to the park about 4:30 a.m. on Thursday. On Tuesday, Atlanta police identified the man as Smith, who is black, in an effort to quash social media speculation that his death was a "modern-day lynching." Smith's suicide came during a week of protests in Atlanta and across the nation over recent police shootings and Mayor Kasim Reed faced questions about Smith's death from protesters on Friday.

But the Fulton County Medical Examiner's office ruled that Smith's cause of death was asphyxiation by hanging and the manner of death was suicide.

Smith tied a white rope to a branch of the tree and then around his neck and hung himself, according to an incident report from the Atlanta Police Department. He had earbuds in his ears and was wearing a backpack, along with a grey t-shirt, black jeans and a pair of black Converse Chuck Taylors, police said.

Police also found a large wheeled garbage can next to the tree with a shoe print on its lid that matched Smith's shoes. He also had light pollen on his shirt and marks on his jeans from climbing the tree, police said.

There were no defensive wounds on Smith's body and no signs of a struggle, police said in the incident report.

Just minutes before Smith's body was found, he posted a haunting message on his Facebook page – where he identifies as London Jermaine. Read more here http://www.projectq.us/atlanta/piedmont_park_hanging_victim_was_gay_midtown_man?gid= 17907

SCOTT KING CRUNKATLANTA MAGAZINE

Scott King drops off something new this track is titled "BLOW" this heavy bass driven uptempo beat was produced atl & MMG prod Dreek Beatz .. check this joint out definately something to make your head nodSince he stepped foot on the music scene, Scott King formally (Q Da Kid) has made a ferocious climb from his starting point and propelled himself into the recording studios with some of the biggest names of hip hop culture. From collaborations with production legends like DJ Premiere and NO ID; From Kool & Dre to Bryan Michael Cox, Scott King has a unique style and genuine substance that the pillars of rap music have recognized in these times where true hip hop talent is deemed almost non-existent. This truth has led to musical projects with great artists such as Red CafÊ, Anthony Hamilton, Jeremih, Bun-B and Jadakiss all on his upcoming EP he is currently developing with multi-platinum producer Drumma Boy. Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, Scott King has drawn inspiration from rap icons such as Big Daddy Kane and Run DMC and has molded a style of his own that dares to stand out above the others while delivering messages one could easily compare to the legendary Tupac Shakur. Scott King’s prowess has seen him even into contracts with companies like Procter & Gamble (Fortune 500) and sportswear giant, Under Armor to name a few, and it has become clear that this young man is nothing short of ready to impact the world of hip hop in ways that only a handful of rappers have in the past. Purely dedicated to hard work and family, Scott King is finally at that inevitable place in his life and craft where the world must hear him. Now and for decades to come.
