The Hidden Activism of Outkast
Whether it was André 3000 painting metaphors and tales of meeting gypsies or Big Boi spitting insights on more literal situations, Outkast has been dropping philosophical gems in their music for more than 20 years now. Since the duo debuted with Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik in 1992, they’ve made it their specialty to make music that stands out from all the rest, including their own past works.
Join in on your interpretation of the activist wisdom hidden within their lyrics.
