    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.

    when did they fall off have you heard the art of storytelling pt.4
    c'mon Andre3000 kills the shit son just peep this verse son

    [Andre 3000]
    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

    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

    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,"...

    another thing...

    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...
