There is most certainly a movement happening here in Atlanta: the continuous rise of indie hip hop. Unfortunately, it’s rarely captured by the radio or the television. But fear not. Photographer/film maker/web designer W. Feagins, Jr. of High Impact Multimedia Designs shot an intimate look of Atlanta’s musical culture that many times goes unseen by mainstream eyes. UNDEREXPOSED: Indie Hip Hop in Atlanta highlights the incredibly lively spirit of the underground hip hop movement. With interviews featuring more than 40 people with ties to the indie community, Feagins shines a light of awareness and relevancy to what’s been going down in the cut for quite some time. If you’re in Atlanta, this film should encourage you to spend time in venues such as 529, Apache Cafe, the Sound Table and other dope spots that showcase the undeniable talent tearing through ATL’s hip hop scene.
