Big Boi and Airbnb are celebrating Black Music Month with an exciting opportunity for OutKast and Dungeon Family fans. The two have announced that they are officially listing the Dungeon Family house in Atlanta for $25 USD a night on select dates this June and July.
“The Dungeon is where André 3000 and I spent countless hours writing songs and producing beats that became Outkast’s early albums,” the music legend wrote in the listing. The guests who book the overnight stays scheduled on June 29, July 1 and July 3 will be given guided access to the basement of The Dungeon, where OutKast and Goodie Mob recorded some of their biggest hits and a state of the art in-home studio with Yamaha audio equipment, plus a special ride to and from the house (within Atlanta city limits) in an escalade. The Dungeon will also offer relaxing rooms styled to commemorate the important Atlanta locations that inspired the songs of the Dungeon Family, and guests will be allowed to just kick back and listen to the records in the room.
“Atlanta is my home, and I grew up with The Dungeon Family in this house. We would spend hours hanging out in the basement, writing rhymes and putting together beats at all hours of the night. Since purchasing the home, I’ve been excited to open its doors and welcome the next generation of artists to the space that inspired countless songs,” Big Boi said in a statement. “In recognition of the significant impact of music education on my own career, Airbnb will make a one-time donation to Atlanta Public Schools Music Department to expand resources and increase access to music education for kids aged K-12th grade.”
The overnight stays are priced at $25 USD in honor of the 25th anniversary of OutKast’s ATLiens, but is only open to guests in the United States to minimize COVID-19 risks. Interested guests can request to book The Dungeon on June 25.
