Outkast have been in the game for beyond a decade now! Over the years, they have released five critically acclaimed LPs, including 2003’s “Speakerboxx / The Love Below”, which featured a complete solo disc from both members. Around the release of their third LP, 1998’s “Aquemini”, Dre and Big Boi decided to expand on their names with their very own recording label. Also titled Aquemini, they introduced the world to two of Atlanta’s greatest emcees in Slimm Calhoun (2000’s “Skinny”) and Killer Mike (2003’s “Monster”). They also introduced the world to Sleepy Brown. With Dre moving closer and closer to the big screens of Hollywood, Big Boi has now decided to cut all dealings end all dealings with the title Aquemini!
