ABL Radio chats with Ray Murray of Dungeon Family/Organized Noize
Murray talks about everything from the Dungeon Family’s early days to how Southern stereotypes and realities have impacted hip-hop, good and bad.
ABL Radio’s Day 1 Radio has an interview with Organized Noize producer and Dungeon Family MVP Ray Murray making the rounds on the Internet.
Murray needs no introduction, but his resume includes production credits on countless OutKast and Goodie Mob numbers, along with TLC’s “Waterfalls,” and dozens of other Atlanta hip-hop staples. Day 1 Radio co-hosts Nadine Graham, Branden Peters, and CL contributor Maurice Garland caught up with Murray before OutKast’s third show was announced, to talk about everything from the Dungeon Family’s early days, watching OutKast’s return since Coachella, how Southern stereotypes and realities have changed hip-hop, good and bad, and how a lack of diversity and corporatizing the music has affected hip-hop’s rebellious spirit. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, though. There’s a full hour and 53 minutes of music and commentary regarding race, art, and politics here, and it’s all coming from a pretty insightful perspective.
