|"To me, that's real style, anything that feels comfortable and expresses|
your personality and makes you stand a little taller." ~ Andre 3000
Andre 3000 is helmed as a rap legend to music fanatics having recorded five studio albums as one half of the rap duo, Outkast. They were the first hip hop act to a Grammy for Best Album of the Year for the album, “Speakerboxxx/ The Love Below”, in 2004, and as of 2006 that same album was certified to have sold over 11 million copies [source]. They have been helmed mostly for their creativity and originality in the rap game. In my fashion, the sound of their music was comparable to a new sort of 60's funk, but executed in the cool, suave, new millennium style of the 90's. Outkast was always known for their offbeat style and presence, and the two complimented each other in that we could see the extroverted mentality of the flashy and smooth, Big Boi, coupled with more introverted, reserved, and artistic Three Stacks.
