Favorite old school OutKast album: ‘ATLiens’ or ‘Aquemini’?

The powerful combination of Big Boi’s percussive multi-speed flow and Andre 3000’s idiosyncratic verses make OutKast among the most intriguing and versatile hip-hop acts, and unquestionably put southern hip-hop on the map. They began their careers as teenagers in the mid-90s with “Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik” but achieved greater success and acclaim with “ATLiens” and the follow-up, “Aquemini.” Which of these old school albums is your favorite?

On the double-platinum 1996 album “ATLiens,” OutKast showed a greater self-awareness and growing musical range, but still kept it fun and funky. The stand-out track, “Elevators (Me & You),” speaks of the vagaries of fame and features the laid-back but memorable hook, “Me and you, your mama and your cousin, too.” Check out YouTube's Rap Critic on why that song is so damn good, below.

Platinum-selling “Aquemini” (a reference to their signs, aquarius and gemini) showed the increasingly distinct deliveries of Big Boi and Andre 3000, and a wide variety of samples and themes. Grammy-nominated “Rosa Parks” met with some legal troubles—settled with a cash donation to Mrs. Park’s educational charity. Despite that obstacle, "Rosa Parks" is one of their best-known tracks.
