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.
Antwan “Big Boi” Patton shows off his ‘Shine Blockas’ on the new album cover for Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty, which hits stores July 6th.
Speaking of Sir Lucious, he performed last night at a FREE (yup FREE!) concert held at the Yaarab Shrine Temple. Jay Electronica & Yellawolf warmed up the crowd, who were already pretty lit with all the FREE (yup FREE!) liquor.
Check out video of Big’s LIVE performance of “Shutterbugg” + the A-Town anthem “Kryptonite” below : Continue Reading…
I spotted this video a while ago but totally forgot to post it but I’m sure you Dungeon Family fans will appreciate this video footage captured during their Vibe cover shoot in Piedmont Park last month. I’m prone to believe the consensus that a Dungeon Family reunion is the only thing that could save this town.
The Dungeon Family. The first shall be last and the last shall be first. Anybody who has been here since the mid-90s can tell you that even moreso than Dallas and Jermaine and only second to LaFace, the DF made Atlanta cool, so only they can reinstitute the groove and save the city. If that fails, expect me to speak to you from New York or Los Angeles in 2010. ~ via TheUnderwriter’s “Why Atlanta is Dying Off”
There’s way too much infiltration going on and we need to bring it back full circle. Back to OUR sound….go straight NATIVE on they “A”zz. *sigh* In the meantime, we’ll all just burn out our “A”pods listening to classics like Outkast’s Southernplaylisticadillacmuzik, Goodie Mob’s Soul Food and Witchdoctor’s A S.W.A.T. Spiritual Healing.
I haven’t forgotten that it’s Friday. Not me! I’m just a bit slow this morning. Anyway, add this video to your flashback collection. It’s the Dungeon Family’s “Trans DF Express” and features Outkast, Goodie Mob, Sleepy Brown, Rico Wade, Slim Cutta Calhoun, C-Bone…and whoever else you can pick out. You’ll probably see one or all at Greenbriar this weekend anyway but I’m still mad I missed their Vibe photoshoot/barbeque at Piedmont Park the other day.
