The soundtrack creators of the south!
22 March 2016 | by districtincSee all my reviews

The Art of Organized Noize is a complete documentary on the producer trio Ray Murray, Rico Wade, and Sleepy Brown known as Organized Noize. Produced by them as well as directed by Quincy Jones III (QD3) this is a masterpiece of a documentary. Never have I seen such a film put together about hip hop producers and musicians that views well and is as heartfelt and full of depth and inspiration ever.

The film takes you on a journey through the life cycle and history of Organized Noize.

I love the fact that they made the music for the movie because any other temp music would have made it unauthentic. Organized Noize provided a sound track to an entire body of people in a region of an entire country thats something movie composers don't do and most commercial music producers quite frankly can't do.

Organized Noize is an inspiration to me because it's the only producer group that I ever loved not just this one person here or there. The first song I ever heard from the off springs of their teaching was "Elevators" by Outkast and then "They don't dance no mo" by Goodie Mob. I was 10 or 11 at the time and I had to have doubles and triples of what they were producing let alone the artists that they were cultivating. I've lost so many copies of their works from cracking to letting people borrow them to just what ever.

Watch this movie if you love hip-hop music, if you plan on migrating to Atlanta and need to know the culture, or if you love them period 10/10.
