“I wanted to make a classic. I knew I had to make timeless music, which could stand the test of time. It was about showing that even if you were participating in felonious activities, there were still other things you needed to deal with: you’re not just drug dealing but also dealing with a relationship with your parents, your girlfriend, having a child too young and being looked down on by society as one thing, when you’re actually much more than that definition… ‘Trap Muzik’ was kind of crystallizing this black experience into a piece of music.”
The Trap Muzik Museum will be opened to the public September 30th, 2018. Although the exact location hasn’t been disclosed yet, it is for certain that it will be held in the land of the Trap, Atlanta.
