Dungeon Family Day



By now I've spoken with many of you about the experience I had last Monday. I'm still kinda at a loss for words for what I was around. I'm also at a loss of words because I don't want to let too many cats out of the bag out of respect from some of my professional peers...


But, in a nutshell, I pretty much got to kick it with the DF.


Big Boi, Witchdoctor, Andre3000 and Spree Wilson




Like I said, I can't really get into how and why all of these cats was together on this particular day. But, if your on the internet 24/7, happened to visit my site Monday afternoon or just nosey as hell you already know the deal. Either way, after they was finished doing what they we're doing that morning they all caravaned over to Stankonia and just chilled out. I happen to work across the street and the homie Spree Wilson gave me the heads up on all of them being over there.

I ain't gonna lie, I was kinda cautious about just going over there with my camera. This was the first time that alot of these cats had even been around each other at the same time in years. Quite a few of them was at the Stankonia Christmas party back in '07 but other than that, this was the first time that the DF had just kicked it like that. So I wanted to respect their space. I even asked my potna to just tell them I'm here with you. But he was like "shied, them niggas prolly know you better than they know me! Nigga you Maurice Garland." If you say so shawty...

Granted, I've interviewed each and everyone of these cats in my career and even broke bread with a few of them. But I don't really be expecting folks to just remember who I am all the time. So I have a habit of re-introducing myself to people the next time I see them. So, I felt kinda cool when I walked up and everybody warmed up to me on some "damn nigga, we was wondering if you was coming around" "oh man, glad you're here"-type ish.

But yeah, I asked the fellas if I could just snap a few flicks or what not just to document and share with the world. They was all cool with it, so I opted to just be a fly on the wall. I didn't want to tell dudes to pose or "you two stand together" or "you go over there." Like I said, at the end of the day, these dudes was chilling and getting back acquainted with each other. They didn't have to let me post up with them like that, hell, I was the only media/blogger dude on the premises.

Mr. DJ



DJ Toomp was in the house too?

You can peep the rest of the photos in the gallery below. Now as far as some of your questions...

No, I don't think a lick of music got recorded on this day. What I do know is that they had a closed-door meeting where issues were resolved and plans for the future were discussed.

I spoke with Big Boi a couple days ago and said that over the next two years we will be getting a barrage of Dungeon Family music. His solo album (expect some big news on that soon), Dre3000 solo album, a Goodie Mob album and another Outkast album are all included in that. Backbone is working right now and Witchdoctor is still dropping projects so please go out and support those.

At the end of the day, there is music recorded and ready to go from everybody for the most part, they're all just trying to find homes (labels) for it to be put out on.

And yeah, I got a little bit of video, but I was asked to sit on that for a while, sorry. I hope you enjoy what I have been able to share with you though.

Thanks for visiting.
