(CNN) – The South has something to say — or show, rather.
Finally, the city at the heart of southern hip-hop has been given what it deserves — the benevolent gaze of André 3000 and Big Boi watching over it in full photorealism.
The mural, painted by an artist who goes by JEKS, presents André “André 3000” Benjamin and Antwan “Big Boi” Patton on a sweeping wall in Atlanta’s Little Five Points neighborhood.
In black and white, a shirtless André gives you a watchful side-eye while he presses his back to Big Boi’s shoulder. Big Boi stares viewers down intently, dripping with sparkling jewelry and holding a smoking… uh… we’ll let you decide what he’s smoking.
