About this album

Stankonia is the fourth studio album by American hip hop duo OutKast, released October 31, 2000 on La Face Records. The album debuted at number 2 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, selling over 530,000 copies the first week. Stankonia received universal acclaim from most music critics, based on an aggregate score of 95/100 from Metacritic. It received rave reviews from publications such as USA Today and the Los Angeles Times. It was also voted as the best album of the year in The Village Voice Pazz & Jop critics’ poll. In 2003, the album was ranked number 359 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Stank, a commonly used word on the album, is derived from a southern U.S. pronunciation of stink, the original meaning of the word funk. George Clinton applied the term stank to the more carnal, hedonistic things in life, including funk music. “Stankonia” is the name of a fictional land at “the center of the earth, seven light years below sea level”, which is “the place from which all ‘funky thangs’ come”, according to the album’s opening lyrics. The lyrical content is divided between verses from Big Boi and André 3000. The artists describe themselves as “a player and a poet”, respectively, and this is reflected in the lyrics; Big Boi tends to deal with standard gangsta fare (such as guns, hoes, and pimping on songs such as “Snappin & Trappin” and “We Luv Deez Hoez”) while André 3000 talks about other elements of “stanking”, using metaphors about elephants, ski slopes, and the four humours.

    Aquemini > ATliens > Stankonia > Speakerboxx/TLB = SPKM >>> Idlewild --- But all of them are great. Except for Idlewild.

    This is where they really broke into the mainstream, and it shows that they're aware of this. It's a very good album, but I almost never listen to it because Aquemini and ATLiens do it for me.

    the interludes are funny anyway. you can easily skip them, unlike on Aquemini where the interludes/skits were tacked onto the ends of songs.

    Far too many interludes... who gives a fuck? The interludes are very good anyway...

    the sound layering on some of the joints is incredible as well. Beat-wise this seems to fly over some peoples heads...

    i can only add myself to the growing line of people who say this record is INCREDIBLE. love red velvet, xplosion, spaghetti junction, gasoline dreams..not a bad track on here, even the skits and interludes are great.

    It's funny how once OutKast REALLY began to heat up the charts - hip-hop heads grew less and less inclined to splatter praise on their subsequent albums, even though they still showed a lot of growth and made great songs in the process... 'Oh but Stankonia was too experimental, too disjointed' - you could say the exact same about Aquemini... If Stankonia's overrated by general music critics, then Aquemini's overrated by general hip-hop listeners...

    I'm tired of Rock critics thinking if they accept an album it means it "must be a good album, even if it's rap". I don't see rap critics putting on a pedestal rock albums as if, because they dig rap, that this, coldplay, or radiohead album must be good if I a rap critic/fan digs it, even though it's, rock. Like, see how silly it is? But anyway, yeah, Stankonia's that shit. Top 10 albums in music of the 2000-2009 decade.
