Troy Davis, 42, spent 22 years on death row for the shooting death of Savannah police Officer Mark PacPhail in 1989 but he was freed on September 22, 2011 when the State of Georgia carried out the death penalty.
Davis was pronounced dead at 11:08 p.m. last night, but his execution did not put to rest widespread doubts about whether he committed the crime for which he was punished.
Davis’ case was one of the most bitterly contested and controversial in Georgia history, as he has always maintained his innocence even to the final seconds of his death.
While Casey Anthony is somewhere sippin on a slurpie free as a bird, while the daughter she was accused of murdering lies in a grave, Troy Davis was murdered by our “justice system” even though huge doubt exists in his guilt. Continue Reading…
It was sorta kinda a reunion earlier today as The Dungeon Family got together at an Atlanta park to shoot a series of flicks for an upcoming feature in GQ Magazine.
As expected, Andre 3000 was true to form rocking a mask with a white X covering his face… he also decided to go shirtless for a few shots.
Alrighty then… looks like the gangs all here!
Atlanta’s favorite musical family is getting recognition in GQ magazine… that’s a big deal!
Everything seemed to be all good in the hood. I mean… why wouldn’t it be? Well according to the grapevine, a few Dungeon Family members were apparently left out of all the festivities.

Antwan “Big Boi” Patton posted the photo above of he and his lovely wife Sherlita, as they chilled during a romantic sunset dunner cruise in Sydney, Australia.
The cute couple also visited the local zoo, where they shared a few animal photos, and apparently tore up the shopping district, as evidenced by this photo of Big at the Vuitton store.
Yeah… we see you Twan!
As promised to fans in THIS VIDEO, Big Boi is currently on tour with Theophilus London for their “Down Under” winter tour.
You may have noticed that #ATLiens was trending on the social networking site twitter all weekend, well it’s because this week marked the 15th anniversary of that historic release!
On August 27, 1996, my future online nickname (and every Atlantans favorite moniker) was born with the release of OutKast’s ATLien album on LaFace Records, the 2nd album from Big Boi and Andre 3000. After we’d gotten a taste of Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, us ATLiens craved more from the 18 year old duo and “ATLiens” was their gift to us and to the world.
ATLien (pronounced Ay-Tee-Alien), is a combination of “ATL” (the airport code for Atlanta, Georgia) and “aliens” (creatures from another world). [Sidebar: Who can possibly forget Dre's naked lady ATLien rendition.]
Atlanta has always been “another world” to those on the outside looking in and the title perfectly fit the hometown flavor of Outkast’s album and the group’s overall flavor.

Antwan “Big Boi” Patton was spotted outside his trailer in San Francisco last weekend chillin with his buddy funny man Dave Chappelle.
Big was in Cali to perform at the Outsand Lands Festival but apparently had to cancel his set due to a few technical difficulties.
After an hour long delay, an anxious San Fran crowd began to boo my boo, and Big hit the stage (and twitter) to explain the situation.
Twan even noted that he’d been waiting backstage for two hours himself, having dinner with Chappelle.
To appease the disgruntled fans, Big brought Chappelle out on stage, and he graciously took the mic for a few minutes.
