Johannesburg - Comedy-drama series Atlanta takes time to grow on you, but once you get hooked, you’ll find it infiltrates your mental space like some kind of earworm.

Created by the multi-talented Donald Glover – also known by his rap moniker Childish Gambino – it follows a down-and-out university dropout who becomes up-and-coming rapper Paper Boi’s manager, who is also his cousin. Paper Boi has a hit on his hands and is on the verge of becoming famous, but he’s still broke as hell.

With Atlanta, Glover shows the side of hip-hop you don’t see – the banality of trying to get noticed, the boredom of waiting, the mental fatigue of always being broke. It stars an all-black cast and writing team. You’ve got to watch this series.
