On May 18th Microphone Check went to Atlanta to interview the three-man production team behind some of the greatest songs ever: every one on Outkast’s Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, every one on Goodie Mob’s Soul Food, TLC’s “Waterfalls,” En Vogue’s “Don’t Let Go,” deep cuts and big hits everywhere. The people who came out to join the conversation and express their gratitude to Organized Noize included much of the Dungeon Family — Big Boi, Backbone and Mr. DJ got on mic, and Big Rube took Ray Murray’s place on stage when Ray had to go celebrate his daughter’s graduation from high school — and the whole room felt aligned and together and giddy. Ali said he was geeked, Frannie had the best time. We’ll all do it again soon.
