A TAV Curator's Pick. 

Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik is the debut album of American hip hop duo OutKast, rappers André 3000 and Big Boi, working together with production team Organized Noize. The album was originally released in 1994 by LaFace Records.

A Southern hip hop album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik features live instrumentation in its hip hop production and musical elements from funk and soul genres. Wanting to make a statement about urban life as an African American in the South, OutKast wrote and recorded the album as teenagers and addressed coming of age topics with the album's songs. They also incorporated repetitive hooks and Southern slang in their lyrics. – Wiki

“Southernplaylisticadillacmuzik will always be regarded as a stellar debut album, a left-field nuclear bomb that landed smack dab in the era of rap purists laud endlessly. The Illmatic, Ready to Die, The Chronic era, in which no rap or pop music critic was quite ready for the drawl-heavy, genre-blending series of cherry bombs Outkast dropped on the industry.” – The Source

 “OutKast would go on to make so much more great music, but we’d never hear them on each other’s level in quite the same way again. Maybe they lost something when they moved off in different directions. Or maybe they needed to establish a foundation as solid as Southerplayalistic before they nudged each other on to become their greatest selves. Either way Southernplayalistic stands as a truly great rap album on its own, and as a harbinger of even more great things to come. If you haven’t listened to it in a while — or if you’ve never listened to it — go back to it. It’s a nourishing experience.” – Stereogum
