Editors’ Notes

The most surprising thing about Outkast’s gradual ascendance to international pop superstardom is how little they’ve had to compromise their art along the way. With each release, from the heady playalistic funk of their 1994 debut to the unhinged futurist pop of their more recent work, Outkast and their Atlanta based production team Organized Noize have watched their audience swell and diversify along with their musical talents. Sonically expansive and thematically ambitious, deliriously eclectic and yet deliciously accessible, 2000’s Stankonia is an achievement of era-defining proportions. Over the course of twenty-four mind-expanding tracks Andre and Big Boi lay out a blueprint for the way music is supposed to sound in the 21st century. They draw on everything from assaultive Bomb Squad styled cut and paste chaos (“B.O.B”) to Prince’s sleek machine-tooled funk (“So Fresh So Clean”) to George Clinton’s post-modern word jumbles to create a wholly original and fiercely inimitable sound that, by the winter of 2000, could be heard blasting from trunk mounted speakerboxxes and day-glo video monitors the world over. With Stankonia Outkast executed a dizzying cultural blitzkrieg that allowed them to remake the post-millennial musical landscape in their own image. The importance of their accomplishment cannot be overstated.

If u don't like this album u should look urself in the mirror and say "what's wrong with me".


Andre and Big Boi are at top of their creative genius on this album. Check "Spaghetti Junction" for a straight up-grown-up Hip-Hop classic, "B.O.B" represents the new millenium's future of music. This album meshes so many emotions into immactuately crafted songs. The definition of a CLASSIC. Outkast's finest album from the 2000's. Worth every cent.

OutKast's blend of gritty Southern soul, fluid raps, and the low-slung funk of their Organized Noize production crew epitomized the Atlanta wing of hip-hop's rising force, the Dirty South, during the mid to late '90s. Along with Goodie Mob, OutKast took Southern hip-hop in bold and innovative directions: less reliance on aggression, more positivity and melody, thicker arrangements, and intricate lyrics. After Dré and Big Boi hit number one on the rap charts with their first single, "Player's...
