Building on the driving momentum created by previous releases ATLiens and Aquameni, rap duo Outkast returns with a series of blazing new tracks. The Atlanta MCs bring unique qualities to the beats-and-rhymes template, infusing their tunes with a bass-heavy Southern sensibility and lyrics that manage to be both confrontational and thoughtful. On Stankonia, Big Boi and Dre continue to perfect their rapid-fire delivery, laying strong vocals over musical collages that include guitars and an overall increase in live instrumentation. Nourishing the minds, bodies and souls of listeners everywhere, Outkast solidify their reputation as true hip-hop innovators.

Principally recorded at Stankonia Recording, Atlanta, Georgia.
STANKONIA won the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. "Ms. Jackson" won the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group.
The Atlanta-based critically acclaimed duo of Big Boi and Dre returns with yet another innovative contribution to hip-hop. STANKONIA, an album borrowing its title from the group-owned recording studio, continues Outkast's tradition of delivering groundbreaking music.
The two MCs cover topics that only they would rap about, over self-produced tracks that only they could make. Songs like "B.O.B. (Bombs Over Baghdad)" are in contrast to the current hip-hop scene, with its bass music background, while "Ms. Jackson," a dedication to a baby's momma's momma, sports a soulful melody in the tradition of Outkast's previous efforts. Either way, Outkast still proves to be in its own elite class.
