If you love hip-hop and R&B from the ’90s into the early 2000s, you need to thank Organized Noize. The production trio ushered in a brand new sound by mixing hard knocking beats with live instrumentation. Their work put Atlanta on the map as a major musical city in America.
The crew, comprised of Sleepy Brown, Rico Wade, and Ray Murray, are finally getting their just due with an upcoming Netflix documentary. The film, titled The Art of Organized Noize features interviews with their early collaborators like Outkast, Goodie Mob, Ludacris, and Diddy.
The film tracks the production team’s rise to fame, influence on modern music, and the eventual demise of the team. After several years of doing their own thing, Organized Noize talks about reuniting and helping to cultivate Future as an artist and songwriter.
“This is our second coming. We better take full advantage of this one. I never heard of a third comeback,” says Sleepy Brown with a laugh.
The Art of Organized Noize will be available on Netflix on March 22. Check out the trailer below.
