16 years ago today the rap game changed forever. Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik dropped on April 26, 1994 and since then everyone has been playing catch up.
From the ridiculously solid Organized Noize production to the almost-perfect tracklist, to the chain-linked chemistry of Big Boi and Andre 3000, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik was not just important to hip-hop, it was arguably one of the best debut albums ever, if only for the fact that the ‘Kast have spent the rest of their career fulfilling every inch of the promise they showed on this debut.
So spin that disc up and hang your speakers out the Window for all to hear. Share some love and favorite tracks, lyrics, whatever right here in the comments.
Happy Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik Day y’allz, and if you don’t have the album, buy it right here in the Outkast store.
Oh and if you forgot what it looked like, the video for “Players Ball” can be found after the jump.
