Biography

Atlanta, Georgia, United States (1993 – present)

OutKast is an American duo from Atlanta, Georgia, United States. The duo is one of the most successful hip-hop groups of all time, having received six Grammy Awards. Over 25 million copies have been sold of Outkast’s seven releases: six studio albums—including one double album—and a greatest hits release.

The group’s original musical style was a mixture of Dirty South and G-Funk. Since then funk, soul, pop, electronic music, rock, spoken word poetry, jazz, and blues have been added to the group’s musical palette. The duo consists of Atlanta native André “Andre 3000” Benjamin (formerly known as Dré) and Georgia-born Antwan “Big Boi” Patton.

Speakerboxxx/The Love Below is one of only four hip-hop albums to be certified Diamond in the U.S. for shipping over 10 million units. Along with Outkast’s commercial success, they have maintained an experimental approach in their music and are widely praised for their originality and artistic content.

Benjamin and Patton met while attending Tri-Cities High School, a Visual and Performing Arts School. Benjamin’s parents were divorced and he was living with his father. Meanwhile, Patton had to move with his four brothers and six sisters from Savannah to Atlanta. Benjamin and Patton eventually teamed up and were pursued by Organized Noize, a group of local producers who would later make hits for TLC.

    Honestly, Outkast consistently makes good music. The albums all sound distinct and actually can't quite be compared. However, 90s Outkast > 2000s Outkast, ATLiens being quite a stand-out album for me.
