According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, residents of the northwest Atlanta area where the studio is located are concerned about the violence that has taken place around Street Execs. Charley Jabaley, the studio’s owner, faced criticism from the Underwood Hills Neighborhood Association in the past, and one Atlanta City councilman that lives in the neighborhood now wants the studio shut down.

“After giving them a second chance, now I’m on the side of the community where we were before in saying this type of activity cannot be in our neighborhoods,” Councilman Andre Dickens told AJC.

There have been reports of a higher level of criminal activity in the area since Street Execs opened on Defoor Place. On average, the Atlanta police department received a 911 call every four days in the last three months of 2015. The complaints included shootings, assaults, car break-ins, and other alleged crimes.

Street Execs Studios has provided recording space for artists such as 2 Chainz, Travis Porter, Young Dolph, and Cap1.
