Big Boi Announces Dungeon Family Tour With Goodie Mob & Organized Noize
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.

Big Boi has been busy lately. He debuted his Atlien jacket at the Super Bowl during his performance (alongside Travis Scott and Maroon 5), which is now available at OutKast.com. He released new songs “Doin’ It” (featuring Sleepy Brown) and “Return Of The Dope Boi” (featuring Killer Mike and Backbone). “Doin’ It” also received the visual treatment. In 2018, Big Boi hit the road by himself extensively for his Daddy Fat Saxxx Tour to promote his then-recently album Boomiverse.
Three years ago, Organized Noize starred in a Netflix documentary, The Art of Organized Noize, directed by QDIII. In 2017, the trio released an eponymous EP. Goodie Mob last released 2013’s Age Against The Machine album.
