West Savannah (4:03)

Cover of Aquemini

From Aquemini and 2 other releases

Produced by Organized Noize

Originally recorded for OutKast debut, “West Savannah” drips with Organized Noize’s snappy-nappy funk and a youthful-sounding Big Boi giving listeners a too-grown-for-his-own-good guided tour through his native Savannah stomping grounds.

Big Boi: A lot of times when we record, we over record. Dre also had a song called “Bow Your Head. ” It was the counterpart to “West Savannah,” so with different albums we might throw like a bonus in there for the listeners, to give them something that’s nostalgic of the times and Dre said, “We need to throw that ‘West Savannah’ on the record.” So I was like, “Shit, let’s do it.” And you know that’s my hometown. I’m from Savannah, Ga. and there’s a lot of people there that I love and my family is there, so I’m all about it.

Andre 3000: Sometimes songs are done ahead of their time. It was done during Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik. Some songs sit, like “Hey Ya” was done three years before it came out.
