Inside Big Boi and Sleepy Brown’s New Album

10 months ago
After 30 years of friendship, Outkast’s Big Boi and Organized Noize’s Sleepy Brown act more like brothers than musical collaborators.

They came up together in Atlanta as a part of the historic musical collective the Dungeon Family, named for the dark, unvarnished basement where Outkast and their contemporaries recorded and bonded in the Nineties. Big Boi and Sleepy Brown were essential in laying the groundwork for the city to become Black American music’s reigning capital.
