Ahead of the new season, Jermaine Dupri and Ludacris team up for a new remix of their “Welcome to Atlanta” smash-hit from 2002, this time dedicated to Falcons fans around the world.

I remember when I first started making music, there use to be these T-shirts that you could get at certain places that would say ‘London, Tokyo, Chicago and New York’ or something like that. That’s what they used to say on the front, they would never say ‘ATL.’ They would never say Atlanta. I’m like Chicago? Then I saw another one say, ‘Los Angeles, London, Chicago, New York’. Never Atlanta.” Starring players from their hometown team including NFL MVP Matt Ryan, watch below.
