Dungeon Family

The Dungeon Family is a hip hop collective, based in Atlanta, Georgia and specializing in Southern hip hop with heavy funk and soul influences. The group derives its name from ‘The Dungeon,’ the name given to record producer Rico Wade’s basement studio where many of the early members of the collective did their first recordings. Rico Wade, Ray Murray, and Sleepy Brown constitute the production/songwriting team Organized Noize, who have produced hits for the main popular Dungeon Family groups OutKast and Goodie Mob.

Only once has the collective been brought together for a project: the 2001 collaborative album ‘Even in Darkness.’
