#SoulRnBFact Le 18 octobre 2003, les Outkast entraient dans le BillBoard Hot100 (#57) avec leur single "Hey Ya!". La chanson prendra la tête du classement au mois de décembre pour 9 semaines. #outkast #heyya #speakerboxxx #thelovebelow #bigboi #andre3000 #soulrnb
So fresh and so clean, clean. Life is like wishin' it was this. #thelovebelow #outkast #speakerboxxx
Look. 🗣Your favorite MC could NEVER...!!!💜 Please understand how groundbreaking The Love Below was for hip-hop, Indie artists, pop music, radio, and the culture. So unlike anything else at the time that Joe Budden probably had a problem with it, too, I’m sure🙄

Outkast - Speakerboxxx/ The Love Below [2003] Arista [82876-50133-1]

It would be spurious for me to consider this article on Outkasts' fifth release a complete review. In tradition of my longstanding bias, I am only covering the second half of the double album, 'The Love Below'. In 2003 I was a senior in high school. My hobbies included writing rhymes, hanging out with my friends and soaking up all of the other perks that come with being in the final year of grade schooling. I wasn't ready to process 'TLB' at the time so I just simply didn't. I heard anything that made it to radio but, it wasn't until maybe 6/7 years later that I really appreciated what Andre 3K had contributed.

Outside of 3K, the real star on the album [to me] is the bassist, Aaron Mills. 'Electric Man' Mills is a southern bass player who has played with Sam & Dave, Joe Tex and Maceo. His contributions on 'Candy' & 'Word Up' in the 80's shaped the tone of those hits. His presence on 'TLB' is no different. Mills is heard on ‘She Lives in My Lap’ and ‘Prototype’. Both records showcase his power to produce a bass line that supports the record as well as create a harmonic web in and around it simultaneously. His relationship with Outkast however, was not new at the time ‘TLB’ was recorded. Mills had been working with the duo on their previous albums appearing on ‘The Whole World’, 'So Fresh, So Clean’ & ‘Ms. Jackson’ [which he recorded in one take]. At a certain point you have to question if it’s a coincidence of timing or if it’s the players’ natural ability to bring the best out of a record. My guess would be a healthy balance of both. Regardless, it has been Mills influence that has piqued my interest in a record time and time again. #outkast #thelovebelow #hiphop
HEY YOU THATS SCROLLING DOWN. DONT YOU SCROLL PAST ME CUZ. I'm here to tell YOU why OutKast has the best discography in rap. OutKast is a rap duo of Andre 3000 and Boi from Atlanta. They've released 5 albums: Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, ATLiens, Aquemini, Stankonia, Speakerboxxx/ The Love Below. They released a soundtrack, Islewild, after all those albums but I'm not gonna let this count (cause it's a soundtrack and for the sake of my point 😅).

Each album is a classic, no if ands or butt-fucks about it. While I would be say all their albums are perfect, they each pushed the HipHop culture forward. The South already had a voice before OutKast, but they just made the voice stronger. DID I MENTION THEY WERE RHYMING THEIR ASSES OFF?They also had hits without watering down their style. Speaking of style, EVERY ALBUM DOES NOT SOUND LIKE THE LAST. The beats and sometimes the feel is different as they always try to experiment and try something new. They are not afraid to take risks, and fortunately they work ALL THE TIME. Imma just say this, WITHOUT OUTKAST THE GAME WITH CHANGE TREMEMNDOUSLY. That is all. Best discography.


If y'all want to debate me, fell free. I like discussions. Maybe even put ME on
