The Dungeon Family lives on. The legendary Atlanta rap collective included OutKast, Goodie Mob, and the Organized Noize production team, and it was responsible for a whole lot of the best music the ’90s and early ’00s. In the time since their heyday, the members of the DF have scattered to the four winds. (André […] For more, go to: Stereogum.com (Source)

Seth Meyers had the biggest get: Tracy Chapman singing “Talkin’ ‘Bout A Revolution” in her first televised performance in five years.

Big Boi and longtime collaborator Sleepy Brown (best known for singing the hook on “The Way You Move“) have a new joint album called The Big Sleepover on the way. Last fall they shared a song called “Intentions” from the project, and today they’re back with another one that fits with the titular theme. “Can’t…

Roll out the red carpet for Atlanta hip-hop royalty. Big Boi is back, releasing his a single “Can’t Sleep” that features none other than the Dungeon Family’s own Sleepy Brown. The funky track feels like a wound-down callback to Outkast‘s 2003 hit “The Way You Move,” which Brown also did his thing on,…
