"Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik" is for the hip-hop fans who love beats. That's what this album is all about. Beats, beats, and more beats. Lil' Jon should be taking lessons from Organized Noize, the production team in charge of the beats on this album. Go to any track (except for a skit), and you'll notice how ill the beat is. The only thing that makes those beats better are the two dope MC's riding that beat. You know who I mean. Dre and Big Boi, right out of high school on this album, drop down-south classics like the pimped-out "Player's Ball", the title track, "Ain't No Thang", and "Crumblin' Erb".
While all the songs are more than solid, there's one song on this album that stands out above the rest. "Git Up, Git Out" featuring Cee-Lo and Big Gipp of Goodie Mob rip it up with Outkast on this mid-tempo classic about doin' something with your life. The lyrics on that joint couldn't get better, and Cee-Lo's verse is one of the best hip-hop verses I have ever heard.
The only complaints I have with this album is the overall raw-ness Outkast displays. Some of the songs sound alike, which isn't a bad thing most of the time, but it would be nice to see a little more variety on this album. Although they sound almost the same, "Hootie Hoo" and "D.E.E.P." are both excellent songs with bangin' beats.Read more ›
Negatives: Becuase I heard their best album to date, Aquemini, before this one, I expected more in terms of production and lyrics. If I would have heard this album before I heard their more recent stuff, I would have said this album was pretty dope. Overall, this is good Southern rap.
"Myintrotoletuknow" is a fast paced hardcore song that proves OutKast is not here to play into the mainstream stereotypes of hip-hop. "Ain't No Thang" is one of the funkiest beats ever made and uses a now infamous hook: "Ain't no thang but a chicken wing...". "Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik" is my favorite OutKast song of all-time as it is a smooth southern beat using a nice mixture of strings and wind intruments in the background. The hook is amazing as this song is literally music to your ears. "Player's Ball" shows off the P-Funk influence with a great song conjuring up images of old-school singing and creating music for fun, rather than money. On "Funky Ride" is where this album really departs into uncharted waters with a great carefree singing song. "Git Up, Git Out" features the Goodie Mob and is one of the better lyrical messages on the album. Cee-Lo, as usual, uses his time well and provides a great verse. "Hootie Hoo" is a memorable song as it features a beat that sounds as if it is just ready to explode and will get you saying "Big Boi's on my left, Andre on my right". "D.E.E.P." is a real nice song as Andre and Big Boi discuss stereotypes.
All hip-hop fans should own this one as it is the classic debut from one of hip-hop's greatest groups (my favorite). OutKast brings an album that is original not only in its genre, but moves from song to song well with varying styles.
