Atlantans love ATL in their “We ♥ ATL” edition and looky who they hit up for a quote.
Of course, y’all know I’m always hyped about reppin’ the home team, so the number #1 reason I personally love Atlanta is…
Because we have our own terminology:
“ATL, SWATS [South West Atlanta Too Strong], Old NAT’L, and, of course, ATLien — all invented by
Dungeon Family artists. Also, true Atlantans also know that the only ‘T’ found in ‘Atlanna’ comes in a glass with lots of sugar and a lil lemon.”

In the visual, dem Nappy Boyz revisit a classic Spike Lee joint, “Do The Right Thing.”

revealed an official photo from The Dungeon Family’s GQ feature article via
earlier this morning.
As you know, I posted a few behind the scenes photos
HERE that caused quite a bit of flack amongst a few DF member that weren’t quite UP on their social media game.
One DF member who from this moment on shall forever remain nameless on this site, popped off at the mouth about me posting the pics, but got shut down when I came back at him.
I was seriously feeling some kinda way about the situation, being as though I’ve supported these knee-grows even when they’re sitting at home doing nothing.
So… after a slew of apologies from dayum near everyone except the one who
shall forever remain nameless, I’ve decided to lift my ban because I know in my heart One Monkey Don’t Stop No Show .

Grammy award winning, platinum selling rap group
held a listening session last week (October 2nd) for their new cd “
Nappy Dot Org
,” which hit shelves today (October 11, 2011).
Nappy Dot Org is the latest offering from Nappy Roots and they enlisted Atlanta-based production trio Organized Noize to produce the new album.
Organized Noize members Rico Wade, Ray Murray and Sleepy Brown, fellow ATLiens known for creating hits with OutKast, Goodie Mob and the rest of the Dungeon Family, took on the task producing tracks that accentuated Nappy Roots’ signature “country boy” sound.
How can we ever forget the addictive twang of “
AwNaw (Hell Naw)“?
Well dem country boys are still on the rise and the quintet reaches new hights with this recent 11-track offering.
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.
