Recap: T.I’s Trap Music Museum Launches Lil Trap House Pop Up Exhibition In Los Angeles Honoring Hip Hop’s Most Iconic Trap Stars

HOSTED BY MEDIA MAVEN KAREN CIVIL, THE LAUNCH EVENT ATTRACTED NOTABLES LIKE KAREEM “BIGGS” BURKE, DOMANI HARRIS, INFLUENCERS SHIGGY SHOW & JASMINE BROWN, AND MORE

Multi-platinum Hip Hop Icon, Trap music pioneer, blockbuster actor and label head Tip “T.I.” Harris brought his Atlanta-based Trap Music Museum to Los Angeles with the Lil Trap House art exhibition and popup launch event hosted by Karen Civil.

As an ode to Trap culture, the Lil Trap House Exhibition, featured a collection of one-of-a-kind pieces in honor of the most influential Trap artists such as T.I., Nipsey Hussle, YG, Pusha-T, Young Jeezy, Gucci Mane, Future, Rick Ross, Migos, Young Thug, Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, and many more.

Let’s take you through Lil Trap House…

First, exhibitioners start in Grandma’s Living Room with guns, drugs, and money on the coffee table to ultimately symbolize protection and security to the hustlers while visiting. Viewers then step into Gucci Mane’s Lil Trap Kitchen, infamously mentioned in many of his songs with key items like scales, Pyrex measuring cups on the stove, and Atlanta fast food chain J.R. Crickets on the counter. Up the wall, many viewers will get a first-look at Pusha-T Interactive Barcode with the classic My Name Is My Name album cover and opposite of this will be Migos City “The Nawf,” a scaled down model of their Atlanta neighborhood and Young Thug’s “Snake Exhibit. As art-goers look around they will be filled with nostalgia as they see a 3D rendition of The Remake of Future’s Dirty Sprite 2 cover, trap icon Young Jeezy’s Brick Wall, Miami’s biggest boss Rick Ross’ Mastermind portrait, a remake of his 2014 album, and the legendary T.I. Rubberband Man installation, which if you take a closer look shows the icon’s entire piece constructed by rubber bands. Before exiting fans are reminded to bow down to the powerful women in the Hip Hop industry with Cardi B and Nicki Minaj’s Throne, and stare in awe at the YG and late great Nipsey Hussle West Coast Tribute symbolizing unity in music and gang culture in Los Angeles.

The festivities don’t stop there, as part of a collaboration with Delicious Pizza on Sunset Blvd, all in attendance received pizza and merchandise in Delicious Pizza boxes filled with Trap Music Museum and Lil Trap House shirts.

The exhibition will be open to the public for the remainder of July and will allow patrons to fully experience the visual journey of art, culture and creativity as a part of the interactive installation. The Lil Trap House exhibition will continue touring to music festivals and college campuses around the country.
