- Before Outkast got deified as Hip Jump legends, André 3000 and Enormous Boi were only two teens spitting rhymes in maker Rico Swim’s mom’s storm cellar in Lakewood Statures nicknamed The Prison.
Presently, Outkast fans can encounter The Prison for themselves at the minimal expense of just $25 every evening. As indicated by an official statement, Huge Boi has recorded the notorious home on the Airbnb site for a restricted time frame, as it were.
“Fans will get an opportunity to remember Prison Family ancestry and even record their sounds at the home where who made southern works of art like ‘Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik,’ ‘Spottieottiedopaliscious’ and ‘Lifts,'” the public statement guarantees.
“It’s the place where Outkast and other music pioneers [including The Prison Family’s Goodie Horde and Coordinated Noize] went through hours hanging out, composing rhymes, and assembling beats at the entire hours of the evening. The dividers bear marks of a portion of the specialists who got their beginning there.”
Bookings open on June 25, with Large Boi facilitating three short-term stays at The Prison on June 29, July 1, and July 3. M. “Atlanta is my home, and I grew up with The Prison Family in this house,” Large Boi says. “We would go through hours hanging out in the storm cellar, composing rhymes and assembling beats. Since buying the home, I’ve been eager to open its entryways and welcome the up-and-coming age of craftsmen to the space that roused incalculable tunes.”
Huge Boi purchased the home in January 2019, which he declared in an Instagram post. “New day, new Parcel,” he composed at that point. “Just copped the Prison #WeDF #playingRealLifeMonopoly #RealEstate.”
Both Outkast’s original 1994 presentation Southerplayalisticadillacmuzik and Goodie Horde’s 1995 introduction, Southern fare, were recorded at The Prison before the team moved their activity to Stankonia Studios last part of the 1990s. In a meeting with HipHopDX last November, Goodie Crowd prime supporter CeeLo Green discussed his breakout solo achievement and how it’s anything but something positive for the whole Prison Family.
“We as a whole have been long-lasting companions,” he clarified at that point. “With men, there’s various character contrasts, diverse creative contrasts, feelings. But, like, we’re men, fathers, heads of families, and that energy is there, that pressure is there now and again.
However, no, we don’t use what we’ve acquired independently against one another. Instead, we influence it for everyone’s benefit of the system. So as I would see it, Contorts Barkley, Cee-Lo Green, The Voice, ‘Insane,’ ‘Screw You,’ everything — that is a success for Prison Family.
“It’s the same as, ‘Hello Ya!’ or ‘The Way You Move’ or anything Outkast did. Like, ‘Hello, that is my success as well.’ That is a success for Prison Family. Their prosperity is my prosperity, my prosperity is their prosperity, and I accept that we should all share and offer prefer in as such.“
