Outkast Biography

Outkast Members:

  • Big Boi (AKA Antwan Patton)
  • Andre 3000 (Andre Benjamin)

Outkast - The Beginning

Way back in the early 1990's, a couple of high school kids in Atlanta, Georgia joined forces to form the group we now know as Outkast. It started out as a single track on the LaFace Records' Christmas album (Player's Ball) and almost ten years later, Outkast has become one of the most successful hip hop acts of all-time.

Outkast - The Climb to the Top

When Outkast's single Player's Ball raced its way to the top of the charts, LaFace Records quickly jumped at the chance to sign Big Boi and Dre. Outkast was the first hip-hop act to be signed to LaFace, which was previously known more for soulful R&B than catchy hip-hop tracks. Outkast's firt disc, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, went platinum by the end of 1994 and was followed up with several more chart-topping discs. Stankonia, which came out in 2000, scored two Grammys for Outkast - one for Best Rap Album of the Year and one for Best Rap Performance by a Group or Duo. That was just the beginning to their award-winning ways.

Outkast - Hip-Hop Legends

Today, Outkast continues to tear up the charts with songs from their latest two-disc album, Speakerboxxx/The Love Below. Tracks like Hey Ya, The Way You Move and Roses have managed to win several awards and have introduced a whole new generation to Outkast's music. Not only has Outkast made waves in the music industry, Andre 3000 was also named the world's best dressed man in Esquire magazine in 2004!

Outkast - Did U Know?

  • Andre 3000 stars in the Get Shorty sequel, Be Cool, which was in theaters in March 2005.
  • Big Boi owns his own pitbull breeding company called Pitfall Kennels with his brother James Patton.
  • Andre 3000 is a vegan.

Outkast Says...

"Our very first name was Two Shades Deep and my first rap name was Black Wolf. He was Black Dog."

I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)

Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
