The Retrospect and Return of Outkast

Pitchfork - "Atlanta to Atlantis: An Outkast Retrospective"

Speakerboxxx/The Love Below

"You can spot their influence across contemporary music: Kendrick Lamar, Cee-Lo, Curren$y, B.o.B., Big K.R.I.T., Janelle MonĂ¡e, even Tyler, the Creator. Andre defined the idea of the eccentric genius for a generation. Yet OutKast is inimitable. There is no blueprint or trail of crumbs. You listen to their records and wonder how they did it. It’s like visiting the pyramids and concluding that they had to be the handiwork of aliens."

Billboard - "Outkast Announce Tour of Over 40 Festivals"
