Big Boi & Dre Present... Outkast by Outkast (2001-12-03)
Release Date: 04-12-2001
Details: Product description
Big Boi and Dre Presents... Outkast is not so much of a greatest hits, more of a refresher course for a group with a history nearly as long as their debut album title (
Southernplayalisticadillacmusik, anyone?). It showcases the hits from their four studio albums, including 2000's
Stankonia, which finally saw them gain recognition outside the world of hip-hop for their brand of genre-switching southern beats and flamboyant personas.
Presents... is a glimpse into a style of hip-hop that owes as much to George Clinton's Funkadelic mothership as it does to the wider world of rap with funk workouts (Funkin' Around) be-bop jazz (Movin' Cool) and adrenaline fuelled rump shakers (B.O.B), as well as Miss Jackson, the single that deservedly brought them into the mainstream.
Presents... is a great introduction to a group that seems to be hitting their stride, with a lot more to come. --
