Aquemini by Outkast

While Outkast became a household name based on hits like “Hey Ya!” and “Ms. Jackson”,  they are revered by fans for their timeless songwriting and genre-pushing experimentation on their early albums. The talent and creativity of duo Andre 3000 and Big Boi crystallized on their third LP, Aquemini. On this episode of Critically Acclaimed, host Jake Ramirez and DC-based hip hop artist Fleetwood DeVille talk about Aquemini‘s place in the music landscape in 1998, how Dre and Big Boi balance their distinct styles, and how the album has shaped this decade’s most successful hip hop artists like Kendrick Lamar.
