Rapper Big Boi is giving Outkast fans the chance to rent the Atlanta home where the duo recorded some of their biggest hits.

Big Boi is teaming up with Aibnb to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their classic album ATLIENS.

The six-time Grammy Award winner also listed The Dungeon in honor of Black Music Month.

The hip-hop star is offering three overnight stays at the renovated house known as The Dungeon via Airbnb, with the June and July bookings available on a first come, first served basis.

Airbnb will begin taking bookings on AIrbnb on June 25.

Renters who live in the Atlanta area will also get an added bonus - a ride to and from the custom crib in an Escalade.

Once there, guests will be invited to take a tour of the famed basement, where OutKast and the Goodie Mob, both part of The Dungeon Family collective, created some of their earliest works.

There are gold and platinum plaques on the wall, and they even signed their names on the walls of the makeshift studio.

Other rooms are packed with memorabilia paying homage to Atlanta venues which inspired the music of The Dungeon Family.

There is also a top-of-the-line studio filled with Yamaha hi-fi audio equipment.

The home previously belonged to music producer Rico Wade's mother, but Big Boi purchased it two years ago. He has now teamed up with Airbnb bosses to offer overnight stays for just $25 per night - not including taxes and fees.

As part of the deal, Airbnb officials will make a donation to the Atlanta Public Schools Music Department to expand resources and increase access to music education for young students, reports TMZ.

Big Boi and Sherlita Patton

Outkast rapper Big Boi and his wife, local entrepreneur Sherlita Patton, have dropped their plans for divorce.

At the time Sherlita stated the marriage was “irretrievably broken." She sought alimony, an equitable division of marital property and attorney’s fees, and child support for the couple's two children, son Cross (who just made the Honor Roll at school) and daughter Jordan, who graduated high school last year.

Janelle and Monica at Outkast Reunion concert

Natural beauties Monica Brown, right, and Janelle Monáe posed together at Outkast's Georgia Reunion concert at CounterPoint Music Festival in Rome, GA over the weekend. For some reason the group chose to perform in Rome (of all places) rather than in their hometown of Atlanta. But that didn't stop hardcore fans from making the trip to Kingston Downs in the driving rain to watch their favorite group belt out their hits.

Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix

A video clip of the upcoming Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is By My Side, featuring Outkast member Andre 3000 Benjamin was released online yesterday. The film will focus on Jimi's life while he was still living in New York. No U.S. release date has been set yet.

A left-handed guitarist, Jimi taught himself to play a right handed Fender Stratocaster guitar -- upside down.

Born in Seattle, Washington in 1942, Jimi moved to England when he was 24. A year later, Jimi's legend was born when he played the Monterey Pop Festival in the U.S. At the end of his set he lit his guitar on fire onstage.

Like most falling stars, Jimi died of a drug overdose in a London flat in 1970.

Watch the clip after the break.
