#30thAnniversary – Outkast “Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik”

The south as something to say!

Back in 1994, most Hip Hop music was coming from NYC or California, but Outkast came and changed the game. “Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik” is the debut album from Atlanta’s very own Big Boi and Andre 3000, masterly crafted by Ray Murray, Sleepy Brown and Rico Wade (RIP) aka “Organized Noise”. From the first single “Player’s Ball”, originally release on a LaFace Records Christmas compilation (is this really a Christmas song!?!?), to the title track or deep album cuts like “Crumblin’ Erb” & “Hootie Hoo”, this is an incredible collection of dope songs from a bunch of young geniuses. This LP is often overlooked because of the amazing run of classic material Outkast managed to create for the next ten years, but don’t get it twisted, even if they didn’t hit their peak lyrically at this point, this is still one of the best Hip Hop records of 1994.
