Best Outkast Songs of All Time!

#25. Morris Brown ft. Scar and Sleepy Brown – The “Idlewild” album was not good! It didn’t sound like a proper Outkast project whatsoever! That might of been by design because it was technically a movie soundtrack, but if that was the case why not make it an album by “various artists” instead of calling it an “Outkast” album! Either way “Morris Brown” may have been the only highlight of that entire joint… Damn I wish I had that $10 back…

#24. Spaghetti Junction – “N*ggas elope with ski slopes and fall like avalanches” … Damn…”That’s the hardest sh*t since MC Ren”…

#23. GhettoMusick (Club Mix) – I might be in the minority when I say this, but “Speakerboxxx/The Love Below” is my favorite Outkast Album of all time! During the time period in which it came out in (the early 2000’s), it didn’t sound like anything that had come before it. Songs such as “GhettoMusick” could easily be mistaken for something that came out this year in fact. The whole album’s style was kinda like “O.D.B”, “there ain’t no father to it”…

#22. Flip Flop Rock ft. Jay-Z and Killer Mike – Outkast and Jay-Z styles on paper didn’t seem like they would mesh all that well together. Fortunately I’m happy to report that the execution of this record was better then most could’ve imagined. Jay-Z rap/singing the hook was a bold decision, but I think it works for this song… People will want to know who do I personally think “won” this track out of everyone who was involved, and my answer would be “none of them”. This doesn’t come off as “competitive”to me, and I feel like everyone does what they’re supposed to do here. Nothing more, or nothing less then what is expected…

#21. Chonkyfire – Listening to Andre 3000 reminds me why I hate so many of the people involved in today’s rap culture. That’s a kind of ironic statement for me to make considering that I make these lists to “help” the culture, but it’s truly the way i feel… People need to start respecting this hip hop sh*t before it’s to late!If people “in the culture” don’t respect it, how can you honestly expect anyone outside of “the culture” to respect it?… I like to rant sometimes… It’s therapeutic…

#20. Wheelz of Steel – “ATLiens” was the first album in which Outkast started to distinguish themselves as a rap group outside of the “ordinary”. The subject matter changed drastically from their first to second album. They went from being “pimps” to “prophets” , and I feel like at the time it threw some fans for a giant loop… You no longer knew what to expect from a new Outkast project. Every album sounded different, and this is major reason why people are still “fiending” for a new Outkast album today even though it’s been over 10 years since the group disbanded…

#19. Roses – I can already tell that list is going to be extremely long winded, so I’ll keep this one short… “Roses” is Outkast attempt at a mainstream hit. It succeeded…

#18. Ain’t No Thang – This track is an absolute banger! Listening to early tracks like this from Outkast kind of make wish that 3 Stacks remained a “gangsta” for a little while longer before transitioning into being a high powered rap deity…

#17. Hootie Hoo –  “Hootie Hoooooooooooo”, is what i use to holla out back in the day when I “trapped out the bando”… Those killa coppas were always flying around in helicopta’s, spying on me and my partna’s, so I blasted them with my choppa. We didn’t want the POPO around no more so we left them dead in the street foshow… Damn “That’s the hardest shit since MC Ren”(DISCLAIMER: This paragraph contains no factual information)…

#16. The Way You Move ft. Sleepy Brown – Did you know that Sleepy Brown wrote the TLC song “Waterfall’s”? Saying that the Dungeon Family was instrumental to just rap music would be an understatement…

#15. Skew It On the Bar-B ft. Raekwon – Getting a member of the Wu-tang Clan to be featured on one of your tracks in the 90’s was a honor only reserved for the best “MC’s… Basically if you weren’t Mobb Deep, Nas, or Outkast the Wu was not f#cking with you in the 90’s period…

#14. So Fresh, So Clean – The first Outkast project that I owned growing up was “Stankonia”. You would think that I would love this album from a nostalgia point alone, but this is not the case. Yes there are a few great songs on this album, but I could never “get down” with the amount of “filler” that was on here. There is such a thing as having too many “interludes”, and I feel like this is “Stankonia’s” primary problem…

#13. Player’s Ball – You ever notice whenever someone drives by “bumping” some rap music nowadays, 99% of the time it’s turns out to be the lamest sh*t imaginably… I live in California so you would think that I would hear artists such as Eazy E, Ice Cube, 2Pac being played in the streets, but most of the time it’s some bullsh*t rap song featuring that’s featuring Ty Dolla $ign or something that is equally as terrible… I wrote this list while wearing my Lebron 9 “South Beaches”, i’m keeping sh*t trill over here…

#12. SpottieOttieDopaliscious – One of strangest/dopest hip hop listening experiences you could ever have… but “That’s if you’re on top of your game, and man enough to handle real life situations”…

#11. Hey Ya! (Radio Mix/Club Mix) – In 2005 I was a freshman in high school, and was required to make a Powerpoint presentation on my favorite musician/group of all time and play one song from their catalog’s. Naturally i picked Outkast, and since I wasn’t allowed to choose a song with “curse words”, I played this song “Hey Ya!” in front of all of my classmates. I hated public speaking, but when it came to talking about Outkast it wasn’t as much of a challenge for me… Fast forward 12 years and now I spend all of my time writing a hip hop blog that generates no money… It’s true what people say, ” some dreams can come true”...

#10. Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik – … I have a really bad hand cramp right now…

#09. Elevators (Me & You) – IMO this song is kind of overrated… Every “Outkast expert” seems to be under the impression that “Elevators” is a “top 3” Outkast song, but there’s really no bases for it. What exactly is so great about this song?.. Don’t get me wrong, this song deserves to be in the “top 10” for sure, but i’m unwilling to put any song that doesn’t “ooze” absolute dopeness any higher than number 9 on this list. Sorry…

#08. Ms. Jackson – This is the song that got me heavy into hip hop music when i was an adolescent. “Ms. Jackson” came out right when I was around nine years old, and was “instrumental” (no pun intended) in influencing my musical taste’s before i knew what was what. Had this song never came out would i still be making hip hop lists right now? Honestly, who’s to say…

#07. Return of the “G” – “Yeah, yeah it goes like this right here. Like uh, n*ggas always be hollering “peace”. You know what I’m saying, “peace my brother”. Peace this, peace that, you know what I’m saying but every time I uh try to get a peace of mind, n*ggas try to get a piece of mine so I gotta grab my piece”… Man, I never knew that guys who wore turban’s could go “in” like that… “That was the hardest sh*t since”… Ahhh f#ck it, you know what I mean…

#06. Rosa Parks – Is this the best rap/country song of all time? …Let’s face it, the only other rap/country records out there are made by those “hicks” in the south who only exploit rap music so they can be featured on Budweiser commercial’s. Past that the genre is basically nonexistent…

#05. B.O.B. – I think that this song is a “social commentary” on war or something like that… I don’t really know… I’ve listened to this track a thousand times and still have no idea what they’re are trying to say with this message. “War is bad”? Yeah that’s probably it…

#04. Two Dope Boyz (In a Cadillac) – This song has my favorite Big Boi verse of all time in it!.. On a different topic… Why don’t more people respect Daddy Fat Sax lyricism? All this dude does is drop classic songs almost each and every year, and people still want to “sleep on him”? Listen to all of those solo projects… You cant tell me that Big Boi hasn’t been holding this sh*t down better then anyone over the past 25 years…

#03. Aquemini – “Aquemini” would have to be considered the best Outkast album all time! It was a brilliantly weird experience that had just the right balance of flash and substance to it. Much like the album, “Aquemini” the song is just as spectacular! You might not understand this song after a single listen, but after 5-10 listens you should hopefully have a completely different level of appreciation for it…

#02. ATLiens – From a lyrical standpoint this might be Outkast best song. I considered putting this track at number 1, but there was one song that I had a stronger affinity for, and that song is…

#01. Da Art of Storytellin’, Pt. 1 (remix) ft. Slick Rick – Arguably the three best rap “storytellers” of all time on one track!… This song had to be number 1 IMO. The instrumental on this track is every bit as “classic” as anything you could find in Outkast discography…
