Tonight I was inhaling trees. I was alone after dealing with life in HD ( Hardcore Definition) when I remembered that I had hand picked voices for my journey to the past, present & future.... Aquimeni. 39 bells I am. 39 whistles in the wind. 39 summers...Been here so long that i could here my echo from 39 years ago. Today...today Aquimeni sounded louder than any bell or whistle..... . but from where does the auditorial libation a come?!!!! A different time, much different place. OutKast why has though forsaken we? In a time of insecurity, disruption and corruption why doest though flee?!!!Read more
This is from back in 1996, when Big and Dre (who was in "data processing", according to Big) were making the rounds to promote ATLiens. They were clearly proud of the video for "Elevators" and how it worked to represent their career up until that point.
Also, was Yo! MTV Raps kind of ahead of its time with the "online questions"? I mean, MTV shows are still pulling that exact move with Twitter, 15 years later. Check out their 3 part appearance on Yo! MTV Raps below. Man, that ATLiens card that Dre is holding up is great...that might be the only time that image has been on TV. Anyone?Read more
was just wondering if outkast's stankonia tour was recorded and possibly released as a dvd or released at all. saw them three times during that tour: 1) in l.a., 2) at area1 with the roots, new order and moby 3) at audiotistic with qbert, blackalicious, the roots (they were everywhere in 2001-2002, even coachella) and mos def. i was a young teenage punk but knew that these were important performances and I truly appreciated them and still do.Read more
This is the album that started this whole movement. Go buy another copy for yourself (cuz you know your copy is CHEWED UP by now) or better yet, buy a copy and use it to deputize a new fan. Give it to your kids, your grandkids, your grandma, your co-workers, your momma, your dad, the police, the dude at the corner store, your doctor, your priest, your rabbi. Doesn't matter. We're all kings today.
