Outkast one of my favorite groups from the south. This group set trend and influenced whole new generation of rappers from the south. I can remember when I heard the song
Southernplayalisticadillacmusic. It was in a summer in the early nineties. It was truly giving me a good mood and what a vibe. That moment I will never forget.
The group outkast is from Atlanta, Georgia. They were formerly known as OKB(OutKast Brothers). Later on they took the name OutKast. Music style of this group Outkast can be called mix of Dirty South and G-Funk. later on they added more influence to their music style such as electronic music, pop, jazz, rock, soul, funk and blues. The duo's name are Big Boi and Andre 3000. These rappers are not the average rappers, they received 6 Grammy's. Over 25 million copies have been sold of their 8 albums all over the world.
