Hailing from East Point, Georgia, “Andre 3000” Benjamin and Antwan “Big Boi” Patton debuted as the Atlanta-based rap duo, OutKast in 1992. Mixing “dirty south” rhythms with G-funk, rock, spoken word and jazz, OutKast emerged with one of the most authentic and unique sounds of all time. The success of epic album releases like SouthernPlayalisticCadillacMuizik, ATLiens, Aquemini, Stankonia and the double album, Spekerboxxx/TheLoveBelow, proved that the world welcomes musical experimentation. Today, OutKast’s barrier-breaking legacy continues. The duo recently announced that they will reunite to celebrate their 20th anniversary by performing at more than 40 festivals worldwide beginning with Coachella in April 2014.
