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. If you didn’t know, the Dungeon Family included Organized Noise, Outkast, Society of Soul and many others. They put out a lot of great tracks over the years it was hard to select one track. For this featured Throwback Thursday track, we are going back to the ATLiens album.
ATLiens was the second album from Outkast and it went double platinum. One of the tracks on the mixtape was Elevators, which was the first single. Elevators is the featured track and both 3 Stacks and Big Boi killed the track. Elevators went gold and were one of the hottest tracks in the summer of 1996. Unfortunately, Outkast doesn’t release music as a group anymore and haven’t for years. Either way, just enjoy the video for Elevators up above. Check out the track listing and stream links for the ATLiens album below.
