Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik is hip-hop duo Outkast's debut studio album and was featured as the VMP Hip-Hop Record of the Month in June 2019. Big Boi shared about the album: “I mean, it's all social commentary, you know what I mean? We might be some of the greatest storytellers ever when it comes to music, and you want to paint a picture and evoke certain emotions. You talk about situations you're goin' through, things that you see that affect you, and it's a testament to how you live. I like to say that every album is a diary, and it gives the listener insight into what you were doin' in-between records, you know what I mean? You just write it down and you put it down on wax.” Stankonia, the duo's fourth album, was featured as the VMP Essentials Record of the Month in October 2020. Listening Notes author Travis ""Yoh"" Phillips wrote: ""Atlanta, Georgia rappers Antwan “Big Boi” Patton and André “André 3000” Benjamin, best known as the Southern hip-hop duo OutKast, did not appear as disruptors of reality or deities of pop culture on the cover of their fourth studio album, Stankonia... Unlike the cover art for their 1998 third studio album, Aquemini, which reimagined the two rap stars as radiant mystics, Stankonia strips away vibrancy and comic book illustration for subtle imagery. The stillness of their stances fails to encapsulate how the 24-song, 74-minute magnum opus doesn’t stop moving."
