Private Funeral Arrangements for Rico Wade

Rico Wade, an architect of Southern Hip Hop and one-third of the Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum-selling legendary production team Organized Noize and the de facto leader of The Dungeon Family, will be eulogized privately and by invitation only for family and friends on Friday, April 26, 2024, at Ebenezer Baptist Church, located at 101 Jackson St, NE Atlanta, GA.

New York Times Christopher Weingarten reports:  Wade’s open doors and nurturing vision became the engine of Atlanta’s creative explosion, tilting the spotlight away from New York and Los Angeles and toward the homegrown sounds of artists like Outkast, Goodie Mob, Killer Mike, Janelle Monáe and eventually Wade’s younger cousin Future. 

While the service is private, the media is invited to cover the attendees’ arrivals assixty-eight (68) members of Clark Atlanta’s band perform hits produced by Organized Noize outside of the church. 

The media is also encouraged to report on and publish the procession route, which is found below.
