My 25 Favorite Artists of the 2000s - #23

#23 - Outkast

While the late 90s were definitely the group's heyday, Andre 3k and Big Boi began this decade off in a remarkable fashion, releasing one of my favorite hip-hop albums of all time, Stankonia. Taking their strong lyrical style and fusing it with beats that sounded at the time like they came straight from outer space, this was one of the most groundbreaking releases of our time. A few years later things began to change as the two started to drift apart, releasing Speakerboxx/The Love Below which was basically a collection of solo albums packaged together under the Outkast name. Overall the content wasn't quite as strong, as Big Boi just wasn't the same without Andre, and Andre completely drifted off to another planet with his half of the double album.

My Favorite Albums:
1. Stankonia (2000)
2. The Love Below (2003)
