OutKast appreciation thread
I dedicate this thread to the illest duo ever to walk the planet Earth (although big love to Eric B. & Rakim)...The lyricists in a place that was crawling with swangers,purple drank,Paul Wall etc...
Post your favorites
Their first 3 albums imo were back to back classics, Southernplayalisticcadillacmusik or however it's spelt lol, Atliens and Aquemini. From then on the albums haven't been as great, but nevertheless show that they're creative artists with a unique vision. As well as this many consider Andre 3000 to be in top 10 or 20 best mc's of all time, and to this day he continues to drop ILL verses with ease. Definitely one of hip hop's greats.
Used to be one of the illest duos around, a shame they fell off so much.
OutKast are DOPE.
Atliens and Aquemini are amamzing albums.
Hell On Earth.
Enter the 36 Chambers.
Return To the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version.
plenty of gems on atliens and aquemini, which are the only albums ive heard from them...
13th floor, E.T. (Extraterrestrial), two dope boyz, milennium, aquemini, synthesizer...to name a few.
c'mon Andre3000 kills the shit son just peep this verse son
So I'm watching her fine ass walk to my bedroom
And thought to myself that's the shape of things to come
She said, "Why in the club, you don't make it precipate?
You know, make it rain when you could make it thunderstorm?"
I'm like, why? The world needs sun. The hood needs funds
There's a war going on and half the battle is guns
How dare I throw it on the floor
When people are poor
So I write like Edgar Allen to restore
Got a cord, umbilical, attached to a place that can't afford
No landscaping or window draping
This old lady told me if I ain't got nothing good, say nay-thing
That's why I don't talk much. I swear it don't cost much
To pay attention to me
I tell it like it is and then I tell it how it could be
The hood be requesting my services
Oh, don't get nervous it's
Step your game up time. These ain't them same old rhymes
Designed to have you dancing in some club
Niggas ride to me; women beat off in their tub
Exfoliating with their poms poms yelling, "Go 3000."
I'm in my whatever bumping +nwa, + +100 Miles and Runnin'+
Runnin', Runnin', Runnin', Runnin'
Summon, woman. Come in. Sit down
Heard you need some plumbing
Done and Iím in a swell mood, a rather swole mood
Until she told me that she told dude
That sheíll be back, sheís going to the store
I didnít know she had a boyfriend so the door
I pointed her to. I said, "Call me when y'all break up
I donít fuck nobody's bitch and never owned a Jacob."
Know what time it is
Nigga just trying to live like a nigga supposed to live
If I still drank that malt liquor, Iíd pour the beer
On the ground for niggas not around. I started off starving
Now they got me out here +Brett Favre+ing
Trying see if I still got it; got it
I guess itís like a bike. Think about it
Bout it, bout it
they need to reunite and do it outkast style not some half-n-half
Idlewild was a really good album.. 'Kast is still going strong in my opinion.. They killed Int Playas Anthem with UGK lately, and that new track with rae is ill aswell.. one of the best groups ever
Outkast sucks and Andre is a weirdo. Only album i like by them is their first one.
...................................so if you like fish and grits and all that pimp shit..................
if you smoke a diiiiiiime
then i'll smoke a diiiiiiime
yo they mite jus surprize headz again someday, with somethin really dope-
for me personally, ATLiens is in my top 5 albums, period... some say aquemini is a better album, and thats cool with me... to each their own..
but atliens held more tracks i felt, and the way they ended that album with a conscious track that left the listener reflecting, i mean... that album defined an era for me.. always will... "softly, as if i play piano in the dark,"...
i agree with the threadstarter that these 2 are definately the best duo ever to bless our ears, but i present this argument...
i am most def a wu fan over anything else, but real hip hop fans cant deny they feelin of ghost and raekwon, that wouldve been a sick duo had it ridden out throughout the years...
