OutKast started off as two teenagers that simply wanted to rap. When they debuted in 1994, most of the industry couldn't have known just how special they were -- but the duo had clearly set a standard for rap music coming out of the South.

Their first LP, 'Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik,' was the pride and joy of ATLiens who believed that it captured the soulful vibe of everyday living while representing a new side of hip-hop, where good music is defined by how it sounds while riding slow in a box Chevy.

In later years, Andre "3000" Benjamin and Antwan "Big Boi" Patton had notably begun to differ from one another but somehow they still seemed to fit together. The bohemian feel on their debut could be found on every album that followed including 'ATLiens,' 'Aquemini,' 'Stankonia' and even 'Speakerboxxx / The Love Below,' which was actually more of a solo LP for Big and Dre although sold together. OutKast curated the soul in hip-hop, they brought the futuristic funk and plenty of 808 bump to spare.
