T.I. Curates Museum Dedicated to Trap Music in Atlanta

The city of Atlanta, Georgia is known for being the birthplace of the Civil Rights movement, the home of southern comfort food and of course… its influence on the music game. Now, trap music pioneer and Atlanta native, T.I. is curating a pop-up museum dedicated to trap music.

According to The Fader, the pop-up will open September 30th – which coincides with the 15th anniversary of Tip’s Trap Muzik album. The exhibit will serve as a nod to the city’s music culture and showcase the artist that helped shape trap music into music’s most prominent sub-genres. Although it has not been confirmed, the museum will feature artifacts and art pieces featuring artist like Gucci Mane, Shawty Lo, 21 Savage, Future and more. On top of the exhibit, there will also be a twist on an escape room called, “Escape the Trap.” The room is said to require guest to figure out secret codes to break out.

The “Bring Em Out” rapper took to Instagram to tease the pop-up museum with a promotional video which features trap music stars next to classic artwork.

“This for US!!! All US!!! All contributors to the culture of Trap Muzik!!! No matter who you are or how you’ve contributed…Consider this just as much yours as it is anybody’s. This is your HOME just like it’s mines…Regardless of our personal differences or discrepancies. It is what it is… Trap Muzik wouldn’t be SHIT without ALL OF US!!!” he wrote.


For now, the location of the Trap Music museum has not been announced. However, those who are interested can sign up for more information and updates in the website.
