How does a song become popular? In episode nine of Noisey Atlanta, we look at the backbone of the trap scene: the producers. We sit down with an elite squad of the most significant names in the scene now—Zaytoven, Mike Will Made It, Sonny Digital, Metro Boomin’, Southside, TM88, and Houston’s Travi$ Scott —as they explain the process of how a track moves from being created in the studio to becoming a hit. No A&Rs are needed. No major labels are needed. The city breaks the mold. What’s the main reason? The key to success in Atlanta is simple: the nightlife.

Michael Jordan, considered the best basketball player of all time, has just joined the billionaires’ club.

Jordan is one of the 290 new billionaires on Forbes’ annual list of the world’s richest people. He’s certainly one of the most recognizable names on the list.

Jordan amassed his $1 billion fortune partly through his endorsement deal with Nike (NKE). The Jordan brand by Nike brought in an estimated $2.25 billion in 2013, which earned the 52 year-old athlete $90 million.

 

But it was Jordan’s ownership of the Charlotte Hornets basketball team that catapulted him into the billionaire’s ranks this year. NBA teams soared in value after Steve Ballmer, the former Microsoft (MSFT, Tech30) CEO, paid $2 billion for the Los Angeles Clippers.
