Outkast’s sophomore album is a very important album in the history of Hip-Hop. The project is clearly very much influenced by Dr Dre’s “The Chronic” which featured massive influential tracks such as Still D.R.E., with the duo seen still finding their sound.
The 20 year old album marks a turning point for the industry, with little hits, but the obvious display of Andre 3000 and Big Boi‘s skill as artists. Outkast maintains sounds from their debut album (Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik), however ATLiens is a very individual project with numerous flows shown from both the rappers this time around. Andre finds himself much more animated and able to create more ways to make amazing tracks despite quieter less hard instrumentals.
