It's not a myth - pretty girls actually like Trap Music, or at least I do. I've been a fan of Trap Music since I can remember. My favorites being Young Jeezy, Gucci Mane, T.I., 2Chainz, and Future. and more.
T.I. opened the Trap Music Museum in Atlanta to honor the 15th Anniversary of his second album Trap Muzik. I had the opportunity to go to the museum during the opening weekend, and it definitely met my expectations.
The museum takes you through the history of trap music and the lifestyle that birthed this whole genre. Once you enter the Trap Music Museum, you're welcomed into the corner store where you are warmly greeted. You are then led through the living room (aka the bando), kitchen, and more. The museum also highlights T.I.'s gun closet, Rick Ross' "Rather You Than Me" album, Young Jeezy's "snow room", 2Chainz pink car from his trap house, and other staples from the trap culture! The museum also included an area that paid homage to those Trap Legends that have passed including Shawty Lo and Bankroll Fresh.
One of my favorite parts was the mixtape wall that highlighted mixtape covers from some of the best trap rappers. This wall made me so nostalgic because I had and listened to a lot of the mixtapes that were highlighted. I used to sit in my room or ride around in my first car listening to a lot of these trap music classics. Some of my favorites include Lil' Wayne's Dedication 2, Gucci Mane's Chicken Talk and EA Sportscenter, Young Jeezy Tha Streets Iz Watchin and Trap or Die, and any Gangsta Grillz mixtape (DJ Drama always held it down with these).
The museum is very insightful, interactive, and has a lot of good photo ops (so definitely be ready to take pics for the 'gram). If you really want to take advantage of the interactive experience, you can purchase tickets for the Escape Room.
I tried to give a good overview without actually spoiling the museum. This is one of those 'you have to see for yourself" experiences, so if you're in the Atlanta area you should definitely check it out!
Here are some of the photos that I took at the museum.
