Known to the hip-hop fans as one of the best performers so far,
Big Boi and Andre 3000, or Outcast, manifest outstanding gift in
accomplishing funky beats and playful rhymes. They are greatly discernible
among the multitude of rap stars by not sticking to one style and not
focusing on the same common themes such as money and ladies. The six albums
behind their energetic backs greatly differ from one another and every
single song is charged with authentic, deeply-lived-through emotions. With
their even succession of album releases, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik,
1994, ATLiens (1996) and Aquemini (1998), gifted performers significantly
evolve in their exposure to the public attention in terms of personal style
and rhythmic balance. However, their real jump to worldwide stardom comes
when they release Stankonia in 2000, thus making it to the forefront of rap
with contagious songs like "Ms. Jackson" and "So Fresh, So Clean." This is
,however, just a hint that three years later double CD, Speakerboxxx/The
Love Below (2003) will deservedly become Grammy award-winning and spawn
global smash hits as "Hey Ya!", "Roses" and "The Way You Move".
Hip-hop super stars OutKast performed at a tribute in the honor of Rosa
Parks at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Rosa Parks,
whose name they made a household one, was a retired seamstress and
homemaker, who died at the age of 92. Other celebrities that appeared at the
tribute were Cedric the Entertainer and Aaron McGruder, creator of the comic
strip Boondocks. October, 28th, 2005.

due December 6. The new release dubbed "Idlewild" will be the soundtrack for
their forthcoming movie, an HBO production, featuring the two stars who

Southern speakeasy. The first single will be called 'Idlewild Blues.
