Many are now hyped up to see the Atlanta-native rapper, T.I. opening a new pop-up museum, but this museum is not your ordinary museum because it features well-known and respected Atlanta rappers who have contributed to the “trap music” culture over the past couple of decades. In light of the 15th anniversary of T.I.’s album “Trap Muzik,” the rapper speaks about how he wants to celebrate the advancement of this specific genre and everything that it has become and what it will be in the next coming years.

In a recent interview with Journalnow.com, the artist goes more in-depth with his purpose and reasoning for the Trap Music Museum “I want to celebrate the culture and not just me…The genre has become so significant that I felt it deserved more than that,” T.I. says. “It’s really going to be a place where people can take pictures and kind of interact.”

Rick Ross, Future, 21 Savage, Shawty Lo, Gucci Mane and of course T.I. are a few of the artists that will be highlighted at the pop-up. Not only will this museum feature these artists’ and their contributions to the culture but there will also be an Escape the Room component. With the remixed name of the popular activity, Escape the Trap, visitors can expect to be charged thirty dollars in order to participate while entry to the museum itself is free.

The Trap Music Museum is set to open on September 30th, 2018. More information with hours of operation can be found on https://trapmusicmuseum.us. You can also check them out on Instagram @trapmusicmuseum.
