Outkast’s Top 20 Songs

To celebrate Outkast’s 20th anniversary, I have decided to do my Top 20 Outkast songs of all time. Andre 3000 and Big Boi are one of the most creative, influential, and compelling hip-hop artists of all time and I think that it is fitting to commemorate their impact with some jawns. After doing this list I realized that one album is represented more than the others and that is ok. I also forgot how good their videos are (not every song has an official video with it).

Again, this is my list and you can definitely disagree and add your favorites.

These Youtube links could possibly break soon so listen and enjoy now. Or just copy the list and look it up links later. Or buy these albums and quit being cheap. I’m not the boss of you, do your thing. I don’t even care. Enjoy.

Outkast – “ATLiens” Throwback Thursday May 10th, 2012

This is the first of many Throwback Thursday tracks to come. These are all tracks that influenced my musical tastes. I am proud to start off this weekly post with Outkast’s – “ATLiens” released August 27, 1996 on LaFace Records.  I remember listening to this track and album in my friend A.J.’s car driving to school.   It is because of Outkast that I really became a southern hip-hop fan.  I am sure many of you can relate to a song or sound shaping your youth.  For me it was this or Korn as my first post. I’m glad I went with this.  My favorite line is from Big Boi, Cause I’m cooler than a polar bear’s toenails/Oh hell, there he go again talkin that shit. I love it and wish I was cool enough to use this routinely, but I’m not.
