    Outkast ATLiens Released 25 Years Ago Today

    Outkast is regarded as one of the best hip hop duos to ever touch the mic. Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik was their debut back in 1994 and it was a classic. The album introduced the Goodie Mob and their first album, Soul Food was also a classic. The hip hop community was waiting to hear some new music from Outkast. Early in the summer of 1996, they released the first single, Elevators for their upcoming album. The album was called ATLiens and it was released 25 years ago today. ATLiens went on to go double platinum and has been called one of the greatest hip hop joints ever. Elevators was the first single…

    Outkast Elevators for Throwback Thursday

    Welcome to another Thursday as that mean we are closer to the weekend. My playlist this week started off with the Exodus album from the late, great DMX. Trill by Bun B, Eminem’s Marshall Mathers LP 2 and Premro 2 by 8Ball was also played. Kizzy Rock, the joint from Talib Kweli & HiTek and Ice Cube’s Peace album made the list also. Any of those albums would be worthy of being featured, but I’ll go in a different direction. The History of the Dungeon Family mixtape was also played and it had some bangers.

    Outkast Dropped Aquemini 20 Years Ago Today

    20 years ago today was a momentous day if you’re a fan of hip hop. Jay-Z dropped his Hard Knock Life Volume 2 album and Outkast put out their classic, Aquemini. We saw the evolution of Outkast from Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik to ATLiens and now the Aquemini joint. Either way, despite being three different projects they all are considered classics. With Aquemini, many people are calling this their best album and one of the best ever in hip hop. A week after the release of the album, they release Rosa Parks as their first single. This was an incredibly dope, up-tempo track that was very successful. Later on, they were sued by…
