The greatest rap album dropped in 1998 and it also had the greatest verse ever imo.

Can't tell me no different. Them 🤬 managed to make a perfect album with balance, it had something for everybody (club bangers, street 🤬 , conscious 🤬 , politic raps,etc). The live instruments on that 🤬 make that 🤬 even more dope.

Andre 3000 verse on Aquemini, both of them are just pure genius. That 🤬 is like fresh water on a hot day.



I ain't even gonna bring up the Art of Storytelling, Spootieottie.....,Synthesizer,etc.

GOAT album imo. It took me a while to come to this decision with 🤬 like Illmatic, Reasonable Doubt, Paid in Full,etc out there but none of those albums are as complete like Aquemini imo.

    Illmatic still the GOAT to me but Ive always had Aquemini in my top 3 all time albums right alongside illmatic, so I have no problem with this opinion

    U can call me a stan or whatever but Ive never heard an album from any genre better than this. Granted I am a Hip Hop head to the bone.

    I've never been much of an Oukast fan. Its something about the way they rap, they don't sound serious. They sound like they're joking around. It's their accents. I'm as East Coast as you can get. Only 3 places I've lived is Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey so Southern accents sound funny to me.

    But Outkast has a few songs I like. I bought their greatest hits album a few years ago. Its cool.

    No diss but dismissing rappers for their accent only sounds ignorant as hell to me

    I'll agree that the greatest verse in Hip-Hop history was dropped in '98, Mos Def dropped it though.
