Description

2018 reissue in a purple cassette shell - A vaguely futuristic, synthesizer-drenched album punctuated with anthemic choruses and bluesy beats, Aquemini taclkes many topics such as emancipation, drug addiction and problematic relationships, while exploring the bleakest aspects of humanity. In contrast to much of hip hop music in the late 1990s, OutKast did not tone down the regional qualities, like the harmonica break on "Rosa Parks" and distinctive Atlanta slang and diction throughout. The song led to much controversy with Rosa Parks filing a defamation suit against OutKast. At the time, mainstream rap was almost entirely dominated by Puff Daddy's New York-based Bad Boy label, which was criticized for putting out music that hip-hop fans claimed was commercially watered-down both lyrically and in terms of production. OutKast's sound, while outwardly similar to some other Southern rappers like Master P or Goodie Mob, was distinct, yet hook-laden and accessible, and sounded fresh at a time of stagnation in the hip hop community.
