Mais de duas horas... Ouvi em dois dias. A primeira parte é bem mais Hip-Hop e bem coesa. A segunda tem uma mistura de estilos e eu gostei bem mais, além de ter a icônica Hey Ya! Também gostei muito de Pink & Blue, etc.
The whole room fell silent, the girls all paused with glee
Turning left, turning right, are they looking at me?
Well I was looking at them, there there on the dancefloor
Now they got me in the middle, feeling like a manwhore
On this day in 2003, OutKast released their fifth album Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, a masterpiece that would be the last studio project Big Boi and André 3000 would record together.
"In hip-hop, people don't talk about their vulnerable or sensitive side a lot because they're trying to keep it real or be tough - they think it makes them look weak," Dré told the Guardian in 2003. "That's what the Love Below means, that bubbling-under feeling that people don't like to talk about, that dudes try to cover up with machismo."
The other half is Speakerboxxx, Big Boi’s crunk-filled ride that feels more in tuned with OutKast's previous albums. Songs like the crunk-doo-wop of "The Way You Move," the gospel-infused "Church" and the club anthem "Last Call" are genre-bending and artistic leaps in southern rap.
The musical split on the album also sparked rumors that this would be Big Boi and André 3000's final album as a group, much to the sadness of their fans. Nevertheless, OutKast's double album went on to sell 10 million copies worldwide and garnered the Atlanta duo a well-deserved Album of the Year trophy at 2004 Grammy Awards.
"Winning Album of the Year was the equivalent of winning a Super Bowl ring," Big Boi told Billboard in 2014. "To be the best album of all the genres is the highest honor in music and is one of the highlights of my career.”
Literally just yelled NO out loud over the stupid and then fundamentally incorrect outkast chat on the latest ep of hhsml
#No BOB is not on speakerboxxx u moron?? #And no it's not 2 solo artists doing separate albums you moron #And they're both on both!! #Fair play it's boo boo on roses though #Outkast#Music#Hip hop #Hip hop saved my life #Podcasts
"Roses," is a single from OutKast's 2003 album, Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, featuring Big Boi. This is one of the most entertaining music videos! The video features Paula Abdul Fonzworth Bentley and Katt Williams. The Love Below crew are performing on stage a parody about Caroline, who is presumably the most desirable female in their class, which she is oblivious to as she is consumed with her looks. I love when André 3000 goes off the rails in the lyrics about her crashing into a ditch then says “just kidding.” During their performance, the Speakerboxxx crew comes in and starts a fight with Love Below. The teachers are unable to control the fighting and Katt Williams approaches Caroline, presents her with a rose and she agrees to go on a date with him, while the crews are still fighting over her. The fact that he got the date just simply by asking her instead of all the antics is so telling about life. The simpler and clearer you are, the easier things tend to be instead of getting all convoluted in the message. I really like the idea of the yearbook capturing several moments throughout the music video. It’s a cute idea! This song seriously ever gets old. Lastly, wishing André 3000 a very happy birthday!
