The Best Outkast Songs

Outkast is a legendary hip hop group from Atlanta, Georgia. The group was founded in 1992 by Andre Benjamin (Andre 3000) and Antwan Patton (Big Boi). The duo has six full-length albums plus a variety of singles, and music videos.

What we love about Outkast is that they weren’t afraid to be weird in a time when mainstream hip hop was dominated by gangster rap. Outkast took that southern flashy hip hop style and blended it with their other influences, such as science-fiction and comic books.

Outkast is known for its very lyrical tracks, storytelling, and humor. While many of their most popular tracks are also their most humorous, Outkast has a large discography that spans multiple songwriting concepts and techniques. Today, we want to go over the best songs from this legendary rap group. Let us know your favorite Outkast songs on social media!

Never meant to make your daughter cry
I apologize a trillion times
I’m sorry, Ms. Jackson, ooh, I am for real
Never meant to make your daughter cry
I apologize a trillion times

Street Talkin’ (Slick Rick)

A lot of people talk about hip hop collaborations that they want to see. Luckily, one of my preferred collaborations already exists. You can’t beat the storytelling power of Slick Rick and Outkast.

Street Talkin’ features Outkast, but it is track three off of Slick Rick’s 1999 album The Art of Storytelling. This was Slick Rick’s last released album.
