Following the remarkable success of OutKast's Stankonia and its subsequent touring, L.A.
Reid at Arista Records gave the Atlanta duo the go-ahead to record as Dungeon Family, a rap supergroup featuring other Atlanta-based affiliates, in hopes of capitalizing on the momentum. In addition to André 3000 and Big Boi of OutKast, Dungeon Family also includes members of Goodie Mob and Organized Noize, along with several other lesser-known affiliates like Cool Breeze and Backbone. The supergroup's first album, Even in Darkness (2001), featured production by Organized Noize and Earthtone III, in addition to rapping by the group's numerous members. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
