Coachella music festival rolled out its lineup announcement this week and the biggest news from said announcement is the reunion of the ATL’s finest, OutKast. Finally a reunion we can all actually care about. Andre 3000 and Big Boi have not released an album together as OutKast since the year 2003. It’s been a long time coming so this week I thought we needed a reminder of just how important OutKast is in the history of Hip Hop with this throwback jam from the year 1994. “Player’s Ball” comes off the very first OutKast record “Southernplayalistcadillacmuzik”.
Here’s a video from Pitchfork’s video series called “Frames” where Big Boi tells a story from the early days of OutKast set to a hilarious cartoon.
