“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.”

Kwanza Hall | Managing Director at Invest Atlanta for Proctor Creek Development

“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.”

T.I. Drops Two Records, “Jefe” feat. Meek Mill & “Wraith” feat. Yo Gotti, off Highly Anticipated Project “Dime Trap”

 Epic Records is proud to announce the signing of multi-platinum, multi-Grammy Award-winning artist/producer/actor/entrepreneur Tip “T.I.” Harris. Along with the label signing, T.I. has shared his first taste of new music with two brand-new tracks, available today at all DSPs: “Jefe (featuring Meek Mill)” and “Wraith (featuring Yo Gotti). T.I. is set to release his eagerly anticipated 10TH studio album and first full-length in four years, Dime Trap, later in 2018. Get “Jefe” HERE and “Wraith” HERE via Epic Records/Grand Hustle!

Universally recognized as a visionary and groundbreaking entrepreneur—one who led the explosion of southern hip hop music and, specifically, trap, to a mainstream breakthrough–both new songs capture the magnetic rapper at the top of his game; ‘While you were getting going I was getting to it..’ he schools in wicked wisps of wordplay on the mesmerizing “Wraith,” while the hallucinatory “Jefe” overflows with verse and crossbred backing track, including wobblily Spanish horns.

Marking 15 years since he released his breakthrough album Trap Muzik, (which helped launch the popular hip hop subgenre), Dime Trap will be the multi-talented artist’s 10th album and truly brings his career full circle. An acclaimed innovator with millions of albums sold and more than 35 million singles, T.I. has been awarded 3 Grammy Awards, 11 Billboard Awards, 3 BET Awards, 2 American Music Awards and more through the years. Viewed as a seamless collaborator whose prolific musical pairings with seminal superstars include Drake, Beyoncé, Pharrell, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Robin Thicke, M.I.A., Lady Gaga, and others, his recent politically-charged collaboration with Kanye West on “Ye Vs. The People” is also garnering raves. T.I.’s decade-and-a-half stewardship of Grand Hustle Records has produced multiple breakout artists, including Iggy Azalea, Travis Scott, and others, and his purpose-driven 2016 EP Us Or Elsecourageously addressed police brutality and racial inequality in America, hailed by Rolling Stone as another crucial ‘point on the timeline of the rapper’s growing social conscious.’
