T.I.’s Trap Museum pop-up showcases various exhibits highlighting the ‘trap’ subgenre of rap, it’s origins and impact on pop culture. The legendary trap star explained his vision during an interview with The Singersroom:
McLauglin revealed it took 9 weeks to gather all of the historic details for the pop up museum, but her team made it happen.
“This project was built off a team of creatives that had a couple of grand ideas and it continuously grew into this amazing experience.” says Antwanette.
“Doug Peterson (T.I.’s manager) called me about their vision in detail and at first it seemed quite outrageous but after literally weeks and weeks of meetings, scouts, and sharing of ideas, we came to a happy place and started to truly develop and evolve the Trap Music Museum. It’s been 9 weeks of long hours, sweat, sleepless nights with true lovers of the art, culture, and trap music.”
