Atlanta is considered a hotbed of hip hop these days, but that wasn’t the case in 1995. ATL’s own Dungeon Family crew would change that forever.
Consisting of OutKast, Goodie Mob, Cool Breeze, Witchdoctor, producers Organized Noize and others, the Dungeon Family put real Atlanta hip hop on the map. Before Cee-Lo blew up with Gnarls Barkley and the song “F*ck You,” the SW ATL native was an integral member of Goodie Mob, along with Big Gipp, T-Mo and Khujo.
Not only did the Dungeon Family redefine Southern hip hop forever, Goodie Mob actually gave the South its name with its 1995 hit single “Dirty South” from the group’s critically-acclaimed debut album, Soul Food.
The song’s intro is a skit of a house raid by the controversial Red Dog drug police unit, which was recently disbanded.
Big Boi from OutKast is featured on the song while Cool Breeze does the hook. Now considered a hip hop legend, Big wasn’t even old enough to drink when “Dirty South” dropped: “…year older / now I’m almost legal…”
