OutKast is the greatest group of all time. full stop.

Well any reason to post this picture

Okay I don’t even understand why this needs to be said but lets roll out the credentials.

Southernplayalisticadillacmusik- 4.5 mics when it mattered, millions sold, Git Up Git Out, Crumbling Herb, title song…numerous others . . . fucking classic album

ATLiens- 4 mics when it mattered again, millions sold, Elevators, Growing Old, title song, every other track every track is unique and banging.  Largely self produced by the artists as Dre and Big Boi started coming into their own on the production side . . . fucking classic album

Aquemini- 5 mics. Rosa Parks. Return of the G. SpottieOttie . . . fucking classic album.

Stankonia. SpeakerBoxx/The Love Below.

Really I don’t even know whats the point of this post. Everyone has their own opinion but if you’re not putting Kast in the Top Five then you need to clean your ears. with napalm.

Andre and Big Boi have continuously evolved from album to album, growing lyrically and sonically with each album.  Their subject matter is miles beyond that of a large majority of other artists, hip-hop or otherwise.  They have come the closest to being as expressive as alt-rockers are capable of while still remaining firmly grounded in hip-hop.

Both Dre and Big have revolutionzed style and set new standards for hip-hop artists as individuals and as a group.  Exploring movies, television, clothing, record label ownership, music production for the likes of Gwen Stefani, cartoons, and even opera with the production of BIG by the Atlanta Ballet.

    Benhameen! What’s going on friend? Glad you free, back, and still doing your thing.

    I agree with everything you said except I think Atliens should get 4.5 mics. I can listen to that entire album without skipping a track. The only reason I wouldn’t give it 5 mics like Aquemini is because overall the standout tracks on Aquemini (Return of the G, title track, Skew it on the Bar-B, etc) were > than the stand out tracks on Atliens (title track, Wheelz of Steel, Elevators, Jazzy Belle etc).
