Outkast’s Big Boi showcases Atlanta studio ‘The Dungeon’ on truTV series
If you know anything about Outkast, you know just how legendary The Dungeon is.
The studio is well known for being the basement where Outkast first got together as a part of the Dungeon Family and started on their musical journey. Classics like “Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik,” “Elevators” and “Spottieottiedopaliscious” were all made there. The Dungeon is putting another notch on its hip-hop history heavyweight belt, as it was featured on truTV’s “101 Places To Party Before You Die.”
Big Boi took co-hosts Adam Pally and Jon Gabrus, on a full tour of the Lakewood Heights property. Everything was on view from crushed velvet couches to the illuminated “The south got something to say” sign, and several Outkast artifacts like plaques and pictures, you truly get a glimpse of Outkast history. “This is where we started when we were in high school man,” Big Boi told the hosts.
As they all make their way down to the Dungeon, Big Boi talks about the history of the studio, which can now be rented on Airbnb. “That’s Holy ground man,” Big Boi continues. “Guests can come and stay here, and they can see where we used to sit on the steps and write.” It was just last year Big Boi and Andre 3000 listed The Dungeon on Airbnb. What’s the cost of living like a hip-hop legend for the night? It’ll run you about $302 for the two-bedroom, one-bathroom Lakewood Heights stay.
TruTV’s “101 Places To Party Before You Die” documents co-hosts Pally and Gabrus trying unique drink and food options and checking out must-see places from a number of cities including Miami, Richmond, Puerto Rico and of course, Atlanta.
