Greg Street & Outkast
As you all know by now, today marks the twentieth anniversary of the day when Outkast’s debut album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik was unveiled to the world.
To help ring in the celebrations, the newly revamped Myspace tracked down a few legends in their own right to build on what some fans call Outkast’s best work. That, of course, is very debatable, but I digress. Some of the players in this discussion include David Banner, Trae the Truth, B.o.B, K.R.I.T. and Freddie Gibbs. Below is an excerpt of the conversation:
On the Goodie Mob featured “Git Up, Git Out”
Freddie Gibbs: “Git Up, Git Out,” that’s one of my favorite records. It was so much talent in Atlanta, like when you heard Cee Lo and his voice was so dope. Hearing that reminds me of the time I was being at middle school, smoking weed, fuckin’ with girls, just getting my introduction to life. That song’s one of those special records that takes me back to smoking weed on the corner, gang bangin’. When that record was playing, it definitely takes you back to that era.
Trae Tha Truth: [Singing] “You need to get up, get out and get something…” Yeah, yeah, yeah! Goodie Mob was another group that came through and with the whole Dungeon Family. I think that was a great set-up that OutKast had, with the Dungeon Family and having each one of them being embraced in so many different ways but coming through all together. It was a beautiful movement.
