Kast Party

Atlanta hip-hop duo OutKast leave the Dirty South for a land called Stankonia

Smell my record: Big Boi and Andre of Outkast
Smell my record: Big Boi and Andre of Outkast

"B.O.B." is so irresistibly heavy a dance groove it has already detonated: The track was targeted for saturation status on radio and video even prior to the CD's release. And just as Stankonia's lyrics demonstrate Dre and Big Boi's determination to cram as much of the black experience into a rhyme as possible, "B.O.B." demonstrates Organized Konfusion's determination to expand the parameters of their sound, swallowing up whole electronic subgenres and calling the results hip hop. With their help, Dre and Big Boi have set up a nation of outcasts who hide out at the center of things--at the center of the Earth, at the center of the charts, at the center of attention. And they still think they're outcasts? Do they contradict themselves? Well, day-um, dawg--they contain multitudes.
