Grammy award-winning recording artist T.I. unveiled his latest venture, The Trap Music Museum. Located in Atlanta, the pop-up museum showcases various exhibits highlighting the ‘trap’ subgenre of rap, it’s origins and impact on pop culture. Curated by Antwanette McLaughlin and The Spice Group, The Trap Music Museum highlights trap artists such as T.I., 21 Savage, Rick Ross, Future, Gucci Mane, Shawty Lo & more.
Over the weekend, T.I & Antwanette McLaughlin previewed the exhibit in an intimate gathering featuring Atlanta’s finest artists and influencers. The VIP preview was attended by Usher, Monica, Tiny, LeToya Luckett, Reginae Carter, platinum-selling producer Zaytoven & more.
“This project was built off a team of creatives that had a couple of grand ideas and it continuously grew into this amazing experience.” says Antwanette. “Doug Peterson (T.I.’s manager) called me about their vision in detail and at first it seemed quite outrageous but after literally weeks and weeks of meetings, scouts, and sharing of ideas, we came to a happy place and started to truly develop and evolve the Trap Music Museum. It’s been 9 weeks of long hours, sweat, sleepless nights with true lovers of the art, culture, and trap music.”
The Trap Music Museum will officially be open to the public on Thursday, October 4th and can be accessed for free Thursday through Sunday for the month of October.
