Happy Anniversary Stankonia ... Atlanta scene in 2000 earn its respect heavily because of this album.

The album debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200 chart, selling over 530,000 copies the first week. It produced three singles: "B.O.B", "Ms. Jackson", and "So Fresh, So Clean"; "Ms. Jackson" became the group's first single to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100. At the 2002 Grammy Awards, OutKast won Best Rap Album for Stankonia and Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group for "Ms. Jackson". In 2003, the album was ranked number 359 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Is this album the Greatest Southern Hip Hop Album of the 2000's? Thoughts?

    It still goes hard. I'm sure I have enough bias to call it a classic but if I can listen to a record 10 years later and still feel it then what else do I need personally.

    Stankonia is an incredible, creative, musical masterpiece of an album. I remember buying this joint when it first came out, I was 12. I had listened to a lot of Outkast singles and tracks here and there but this was the first Kast album I heard from front to back and it completely changed the way I thought about the way you can make hip hop music. Personal classic to me.
