When GOATs Rock the Same Heat
This post could easily turn into a 500-600 word piece about me expressing my love for the Mighty O, better known as OutKast.
Last week the group’s first album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, turned 23. Of course that makes me feel old because I remember vividly when the album dropped. I was a youngin’, but I still remember trying to sneak a peek at the CD’s artwork. Real OutKast fans know what I’m talking about. Ha!
Big Boi and Andre 3000 hung out with Killer Mike & El P aka Run The Jewels. Imagine that! The best rap duo of all time, and arguably the greatest current rap duo just chopping it up about life. But I’ll say what everyone is thinking: what would an OutKast and Run The Jewels song sound like?
Hopefully we find out one day.
Aside from seeing them all in one picture, the thing I noticed off rip was Big and Dre both wearing Infrared Jordan 6s. Now we know these guys have always been on their own wave. That said, in the words of Big Boi, it was a crazy coincidence that they both wore the exact same shoes on the night of their 23rd Anniversary.
That’s crazy! Is that a sign from the Father above? Perhaps this was the sign 3K needed to convince him that it’s time for another Kast album. I hope so!
In closing, I just want to thank Kast for giving the south a voice when we were only known for booty shake music. OutKast truly changed how people view southern rap, and for that I’m thankful. Thank you for giving the south a respected voice.
23 years later and the south still got something to say.
Do you think we’ll ever get another OutKast album? Also, what’s your favorite Kast album?
A little history lesson below, and some music for those not familiar with RTJ.
