Organized Noize Documentary Trailer Features OutKast, Future & More
Organized Noize is quite simply one of the most innovative and important production crews in the history of hip-hop. The three-man team comprised of Rico Wade, Ray Murray and Sleepy Brown were the backbone of the Dungeon Family, producing albums for Outkast and Goodie Mob and providing hit singles like "Waterfalls" for TLC and "Don't Let Go" for En Vogue.
Now we're finally getting an in-depth look at the story behind the group's rise to success in a new documentary called The Art of Organized Noize. Starring a litany of high-profile industry figures like L.A. Reid, Andre 3000, Big Boi, Cee-Lo, Future, Metro Boomin, Diddy, and many others, the documentary takes a close look at how three guys from Atlanta became one of hip-hop's most revered production squads during the '90s.
The last time we've seen this close of an investigation into Organized Noize and the Dungeon Fam was the infamous Vibe piece from 2010, "The Untold Story of the Dungeon Family." In it, we get an uncompromising look at some of the internal strife in the collective, as well as what led Rico Wade to hit rock bottom.
The documentary, directed by QDIII, (who also did The Carter documentary on Lil Wayne from 2009), looks to include background about ONP's $20 million deal with Interscope, why Ray Murray eventually distanced himself from the crew, and tension Rico Wade had with other artists.
The film looks incredible, so if you're a Dungeon Family fan watch the trailer above and be sure to check out the whole thing when it drops March 22 on Netflix.
