Meet Uncle Darnell

We’re going back to Frazier Homes, only this time Big Boi isn’t our tour guide. It is, instead, his Uncle Darnell. Perhaps you’ll remember him from the title track “ATLiens.”

And I try, to warn you not to test but you don’t listen/Givin’ the shout out to my Uncle Darnell locked up in prison…”

Remember going to cookouts when you were younger and having that one uncle who would always have a drink in his hand and a cigarette somehow barely hanging on the tip of his lip? Yep, that’s Uncle D. Minus the cig. A charming, intriguing fellow, indeed. He’s got stories for days and hell of a way to offer a play-by-play. He lives in the community, so he understands its pulse and can relate to damn near everyone who calls the place home — young and old. Pretty much, Darnell is Savannah, Georgia.

If you live in the area, or ever happen to pass through, make sure to visit D’s BBQ spot on Martin Luther King and Gwinnett. Just a heads up, if anything is located on MLK in the South, it’s either in or near the hood. I’d bet my last dollar that it’ll be some damn good food though.

So go ahead and check it out. We see and respect the hustle. Tell ’em TSS sent you.
