The “ATLiens” are back.
Legendary Atlanta rappers André 3000 and Big Boi have returned. While the Outkast duo don’t link up for a new song, they both appear on back to back songs off the Goodie Mob’s new album, Survival Kit. Three Stacks spits a nostalgic verse on “No Cigar” (his first of 2020,) while Big Boi features on “Prey 4 Da Sheep.” If you know anything about these “ATLiens”, you’d know they brought it.
André uses his verse to reminisce on the early days of Outkast and Goodie Mob when they used to make music in a “home for misfits.” Check out the Andre 3000’s verse on “No Cigar” below.
Survival Kit is Goodie Mob’s first album in seven years, and also features Public Enemy’s Chuck D. The mob is made up of key Dungeon Family members Cee-Lo Green, T-Mo, Big Gipp and Khujo.
The Dungeon Family goes way back.
The members of Outkast and Goodie Mob were part of an Atlanta music collective called The Dungeon Family when they first broke onto the scene. Together, the members of the group helped mark Atlanta, and the south in general, as the center of the hip-hop world for decades to come.
Whether it was Dré and Big Boi hopping on Goodie Mob’s “Black Ice (Sky High)” in 1998, or Goodie Mob hopping on the classic Outkast single “Git Up Git Out” in 1995, The Dungeon Family have been collaborating on great music for the better part of the last 30 years.
Outkast celebrates a classic.
Last Sunday, Outkast celebrated the 20th anniversary of their classic 2000 album, “Stankonia.” The album featured hit songs like “Ms. Jackson” and “Bombs Over Baghdad,” and solidified their status as hip-hop legends and chart topping artists.
The album is a genre defining work of art that has inspired a multitude of artists today. If André 3000 and Big Boi were not part of your childhood, well, “I’m sorry Ms. Jackson.”
