Hip-hop legend Big Boi is inviting fans to stay at his old stomping grounds in Atlanta — known as The Dungeon.

The Outkast member has officially become an Airbnb host during Black Music Month and ahead of the 25th anniversary of his and André 3000‘s 1996 album, ATLiens.

In a video shared by Airbnb Thursday, Big Boi describes the home, which is where the Dungeon Family artists formed in the 1990s.

“The Dungeon, this is the holy place where the alliance of elite MCs congregated — Outkast, Goodie Mob, Organized Noize, Big Rube — to start our movement in music,” Big says in a video shared on Instagram. “This building has so much history in it. It’s all our home.”

The 46-year-old says he purchased the home to preserve it, so future “generations” can experience “the ultimate vibe of how the culture in Atlanta progressed.”

“This is our starting gate right here,” Big adds of the home where Outkast recorded most of their early work.  

Fans who stay at The Dungeon will sleep in a plush bed with the Outkast logo above the headboard. Aspiring musicians will appreciate the state-of-the-art studio in the basement, walls lined with platinum hit records, and a black-and-white-striped wall that looks similar to the cover of Outkast’s 2000 album, Stankonia.

Big Boi will host three overnight stays at The Dungeon on June 29, July 1 and July 3, for $25 a night through Bookings open up on Friday, June 25, at 1 p.m. ET.
