Rap Life Live is hosted by Apple Music’s global head of Hip-Hop and R&B, Ebro Darden, alongside Apple Music 1 hosts Nadeska and LowKey, Rap Life Live Atlanta aims to further extend the discussion around the many important issues impacting the Black community through open dialogue, important conversations, and the power of music.
“Rap Life Live Atlanta is the crossroads of the most popular artists in Rap and the student body of Clark Atlanta University. A celebration of what is popular right now … the music and the academics,” said Ebro Darden. “Our youth are not only supporting and celebrating music from the streets, but also supporting each other through scholastic accomplishments. The culture can be both! This is Rap Life!”

When asked about the importance of ambition and determination in pursuing one’s dreams during the episode, Moneybagg Yo, Saweetie, and Lil Durk offered the following:
- Moneybagg Yo: “You just really have to go hard and just figure out what you want to do in life… what kind of goals you want to accomplish and just reach for them. If you’re trying to go somewhere or do something and they’re not taking you serious, make them take you serious. Keep pushing…tunnel vision, don’t let nothing stop you.”
- Saweetie: “I think success comes with a lot of obstacles. I feel like every test is to make you a better you. Stay with it and don’t play with it and get to where you need to go.”
- Lil Durk: ”You can pick up a camera, you can pick up a microphone, you can engineer. There’s all types of ways you can do what you can do. There were times I wanted to give up or be like I wanted to do something else but the fans just kept me the fans kept me 10 toes down and being able to be who I am today.”
