Big Boi recently purchased the home that included The Dungeon Studio. In the basement of Rico Wade’s family’s house back in the early 1990s, OutKast, Goodie Mob, and other artists recorded some of their earliest music. Wade’s Organized Noize, with Sleepy Brown and Ray Murray, was at the helm, mentoring the young groups. By the mid-1990s, the Dungeon Family collective became a dominant super group within Hip-Hop, recording multiple classic albums through ensemble collaboration.
Twenty-five years after Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, Big Boi has those early days on his mind. For his latest tour, the OutKast co-founder is bringing Goodie Mob, Organized Noize, and K.P. The Great on the road with him. Goodie will include CeeLo Green. Tickets are currently available here.
The tour will begin in Chicago on April 14 and make its way through major market cities on the East Coast and the South before concluding on April 27 in Asheville, North Carolina.
