Good

Being the first Outkast record I've listened to, I can't say I'm disappointed! With it's astounding collection of beats and very memorable bars from Big Boy and Andre 3000, 'Stankonia' is an interesting and eclectic listening experience from the Georgia hip-hop duo.

Color: Black
FAV TRACKS: Ms. Jackson, ?, Gasoline Dreams, Gangsta Shit, Humble Mumble, Snappin' & Trappin', B.O.B.
LEAST FAV: Spaghetti Junction
