"da art of storytelling pts. 1 and 2 " (1998): outkast

Outkast "Da Art of Storytelling Pt. 1" (1998)

Outkast "Da Art of Storytelling Pt. 2" (1998)

When Aquemini dropped in Septemebr 1998, those who had previously doubted the talent and abilities of Outkast were forever silenced. To deny their lyrical artistry at that point would have been intellectually fraudulent. The high point of that project (according to me), were tracks 9 and 10. The Atlanta-based duo showed that the South had previously and will forever produce hip hop artists that can showcase rhyming at the highest levels. Can't believe this was 11 years ago.
