On Saturday, September 29th, Tip “T.I.” Harris hosted the VIP preview of the new Trap Music Museum in Atlanta. This pop-up museum is a collaboration of mix-media installations honoring the trap music culture and the artists, producers, DJ’s and more who helped create the genre. Over 300 guests came out to support and view the dynamic space while enjoying custom cocktails by Tito’s Vodka and bites by Chef Petey. DJ A1 spun the greatest trap music hits from 2003 – present time, while guests mixed, mingled and reminisced on the monumental moments that defined this movement. Select guests put their brains to the test by trying out the “Escape the Trap” escape room located within the space.

“We have an intentional plan to revitalize and redevelop the Proctor Creek Watershed with investment from the entertainment industry. The Trap Museum is the first example of placemaking BY creatives FOR creatives. TIP, Atlanta’s native son has yet again raised the bar by curating an artistic experience that reflects poverty and struggle turned into success and community building.”

“Trap is often associated with “the crack era” and its horrors, but this museum shows you truly that the ‘Trappers’ (similar to moonshiners vs prohibition) were simply home grown entrepreneurs that used an ‘illegal’ means to better the economic experience for those in underserved communities. Without Moonshiners you have no NASCAR and the millions of dollars of generational wealth it created and without ‘Trap Music’ hip-hop would not be the most dominant culture force sold out of the USA worldwide. It has been a long hard road with a wicked drug war that locked up our best business minds, but the spirit of ‘do for self’ lives and thrives today because of ‘Trap Music’. Bravo To all my Trappers.”
