Outkast, Antwan Patton (Big Boi) and Andr� Benjamin (Andr� 3000.

Outkast got signed to Laface in 1992, originally starting out as being on a Remix of a TLC song. Eventually they released Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik which was well adored among Rap fans, but barely noticed by the mainstream audience. But over time, as outkast reached a mainstream audience, the album would eventually go Platinum.

In 1996, Outkast released ATLiens, which was a gigantic departure from their style onSouthernplayalisticadillacmuzik , it was much more Electronic and Afrocentric, and really showed a quick maturing in Outkast's career. "Elevators" reached the top 20 (The first Outkast song that got such noteriety) and ATLiens peaked at #2 on the US Album charts, And has gone double platinum. .

In 1998, Outkast released what Is widely regarded as their best effort: "Aquemini" (The title comes from the two member's Zodiac Signs). Aquemini had Rock, Blues, and Jazz influences which helped reached a very wide audience and would help the album go double platinum. Originally also planned out to be accompanied by a movie, which would not materilize until much later on.

Though Outkast were adored by rap fans and casual listeners alike, their big break would come in 2000, with the release of "Stankonia", which comtained smash hits like "B.O.B. (Bombs Over Baghdad)", "Ms. Jackson",and "So Fresh, So Clean".The album won two Grammys and went 4X Platinum, and was on Top 10 of 2000 Lists everywhere.

Just when Outkast thought they had reached their Zenith, they released the long anticipated and long delayed double solo album Speakerboxx(Big Boi)/ The Love Below (Andre 3000) which was matched by few albums in popularity, selling five million copies.

Outkast have once again made people anticipate their new (and once again, often pushed back) Idlewild, which was released in 2006 with their long-dreamed feature film of the same name. Unfortunately, both the film and the album received lukewarm responses from critics and fans, and, although it's unknown what implication this would have, OutKast would later go on on hiatus in 2007 to focus on their solo careers, with Big Boi being thus far the only one who has managed to release a proper full length album, despite Three Stacks several guest appearances since.

in 2013, it was confirmed that OutKast would once again reunite to perform at Coachella and to tour, although there has thus far been no talk about new material. « hide
