    Smh this is just all old shit

  • D3ent

    Paul wall, yelawolf, Jay electronia & raekwon track Leaked who got it ???

  • Actual/Factual

    man this ain’t getting downloaded lol…wtf is this shit?!?

  • mr2dope

    wow I feel so sent off right now lol…

  • grap




  • Derp

    The old tracks are remakes, he remade and added a few more things to the tracks such as ATLiens and B.o.B

  • russell

    Thanks. Can’t wait to bump.

  • Best hip hop duo ever? I don’t know about that Shake because Big Boi is garbage. Andre 3k is dope though and always has been. Would you really put Outkast ahead of EPMD, Gangstarr, Eric B & Rakim, or even Mobb Deep? It’s just really hard because Andre 3k is real dope so he makes Outkast as a duo seem better than I think they were/are.

  • niceeee


  • Shake & Meka’s Homie

    @Derek Jeter- I wouldnt count Eric B & Rakim & Gangstarr as duo’s. They were the “The MC & The DJ” type of group. That wouldnt be fair to size them up against real duos (2 MC’s) like the Clipse, Outkast, EPMD & Mobb Deep.

  • ben

    stupid ass derekskeeter, go re-listen to Southernplayalistic… real recognize real

  • Justice Face

    I can’t believe how many people sleep on Big Boi lyrically because of how often you stack him up against Andre. Even if Andre is the better of the two, Big Boi is still in that top 1-2% of mc’s/rappers.
    and to post above, I think a huge amount of people would put outkast ahead of epmd, gangstarr, etc. I’m talking about hip hop heads, not the vast majority of the audience (who obviously will put outkast ahead because of popularity)

  • mreastside

    Derek Jeter, you are so wrong . you have no clue what you are talking about at all. big boi is better then andre 3k . big boi is what made outkast blow up not andre 3k . outkast is better then mobb deep .big boi is not garabage but the best parrt of outkast . how you think & what you think is garabage .outkast,geto boys,UGK ,& 2live crew the reasons the south blew up. big boi is real hood MC unlike andre 3k these days. the first 3 albums of outkast were all big boi not andre 3k

  • “Would you really put Outkast ahead of EPMD, Gangstarr, Eric B & Rakim, or even Mobb Deep?”

    while i don’t really count eric b & rakim and gangstarr in the same type of “duo”… yes. yes i would.

  • Rare Air

    Derek Jeter…… you trippin bro…. nuff said

  • Derek, you are trippin’ but so are you, mreastside. I agree with Shake & crew unless were including DeLa. I guess they wouldn’t really count cuz of Mase, the DJ. It’s kind of confusing since Mr. DJ was or is sort considered to be in Outkast, too? But, yeah, ‘Kast & DeLa.

  • Justice Face

    Yep, when you say ‘Duo’ it doesnt account for everybody. If it wasn’t for Organized Noize as well they wouldnt be who they are musically, that has to factor in to why they are the best ‘duo’ also.

  • russell

    Just listened to this shit. What the fuck at it all being old.

  • Justice Face

    If anyone has the alternate version of Gangsta Shit (the one without the funky guitars),
    please post a link, I’ve been searching everywhere.

  • yadida

    anyone who doesn’t think big boi can hold his own obviously has only heard a handful of outkast songs

  • Justice Face
  • yadida
  • crackadon

    those djs literally were up from midnight last nite ’till like noon the next day mastering and hyping this tape up. they said it was gonna be sum classics, remixes and exclusives. it’s nothing more than an Outkast best of playlist. ive been waiting to burn my damn copy of Sir Lucious Left Foot ’till the tape dropped cuz i thought it would have those damn unreleased Andre tracks. now i feel bamboozled. i have high standards when it comes to my free music, Big Boi!!

  • Justice Face

    THank you Yadida

  • glad ive got the album already and dont need to “feel disappointed” with this

  • ahaha mixtapes for dummies yo. shits hilarious!!! dummies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • teddy2grizzly

    There are a couple new songs on this tape, including a Andre 3000 feature

  • Merckushio

    @ Derek Jeter bash yourself in the skull with a Louisville. You’re talking on fulltimeboss status with your comments.

  • DJ122

    Which track has the new andre 3000 feature?

  • guest

    hey @derekjeter since everyone else is hating on you brutally because you gave your opinion i guess i have to as well! so fuck you derekjeter. you are all lame.

  • RockyLockrige

    Thankyou big boi
    1) I can tell some of these peoples negative responses were inspired by shakes blurb and just ran with it, i think shake respects outkast alot hence the site name. so plz listen to the tape first then comment.

    2) How dare you diss kast like that, if u are a fan of kast u wont complain he gave out a free mixtape of their old great hits, some of which arent on the album.

    3)In the outakst best duo debate..their my favourite, but some of the comments just make me SMDH, cos i can tell some commenting havent even heard all of their albums and are just spewing nonsense.

    4)I look forward to this tape. that is all.

    exactly, i told myself i wasnt gonna download.. im just waiting on the album.. but a best of from big boi, especially if mixed rite…, is a nice change of pace..

  • shawn p.

    i’m just mad synthesizer ain’t on here. you can never be disappointed with a kast joint though. I’m bout to light a blunt and let this shit ride.

  • jojoba

    If you’re not counting DJ and rapper types that means your only counting by number of MCs and that would mean you would have to include Tribe and Run DMC and without a doubt Run DMC is the best ‘Rapping Dou’ of all time… Nuff said

  • Kilo Ali IV

    i may be wrong..but is this the first time a KILO ALI song been on 2dopeboyz?…AHHH SKEET SKEET!!!

  • CJ

    That song w/ Dre isn’t unreleased, it was on an old 8Ball MJG album.

    And seriously, Outkast is clearly the greatest hip-hop duo ever. Listen from Southernplayalistic to Stankonia, all classics. Lyrically they’re sick and they always came with something new and creative. They been holding it down for the South before it was even “cool” to be a rapper from GA

  • @jojoba…
    Quit with the Run DMC. I understand they were pioneers & originators in the culture and all that, along with their unprecedented mainstream success. Were talking “rap duos” here, & you’re crazy if you think ol’ Run & DMC are better than Andre & Big Boi. Even their commercial success is arguably greater than Run DMC’s. Some may even argue that Kast’s impact on the culture is even greater being that they somewhat put the South on the map in hip-hop. Also, Tribe is my favorite of all time but I don’t think Phife really carries his weight to put ’em in the greatest rap-duo debate.

  • southcakc23

    BOI STOP! @derek jeter, you are fucking retarded. Not only is Big Boi not Garbage, He’s EASILY top 10 all time….(just barely misses top 5).

    @shake….outkast isn’t the greatest duo, THEY ARE THE GREATEST GROUP OF ALL TIME. There is no ‘duo’ category; it’s either solo or group. People use ‘duo’ to save face for having other groups like Wu Tang from being dissed by someone putting ‘kast above the Wu.

    Outkast is G.O.A.T. period….they have the quality, longevity and THE FUCKING RECORD SALES to back their G.O.A.T. UP!

    @anyone saying this person or that person is the reason outkast blew up…..you are full of shit unless you say OUTKAST is the reason OUTKAST blew up.

    @big boi being > andre….whomever said that shit is smoking crack; especially the kat that said the first 3 albums were all Big Boi…..BOI STOP! The first album Big Boi shined….ATLiens and Aquemini…it was the Andre 3000 show.

  • Where would I detect the comparable wordpress template like this one? is it harmonious with the latest 3.1? thanks

  • Hey 6sqcoflw25iro366p6d3, very interesting post, it really got me thinking. p578vmfsf3 kfp63psw2j Thank you. v9l9joz3t5

  • Wow! I’m truly enjoying your design/style for the site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it can be very hard to get that “perfect balance” concerning superb usability as well as visual appeal. I must say you have done a awesome job. Additionally, this blog site starts extremely quick for me on Firefox. Outstanding Weblog. Incidentally did you hear about Obamas budget problems?
