The world is in for a treat as two of the greatest groups to come out of the south have released deluxe versions of some of their acclaimed albums. Goodie Mob and Outkast have went back in the vault to bring some rarities to the masses.
Outkast has come thru with the “Deluxe” version of their classic album “Stankonia” which was originally released in 2000. “Stankonia” was album number four for Outkast and really showed their growth when it came to experimentation. Three singles kept the album on the charts, yet it was the single “Mrs.Jackson” that reached number one. “Stankonia” is regarded by many as one of the greatest albums ever created, so to get the “deluxe” version 20 years later was worth the wait. All 24 of the original tracks are intact with an additional 6 tracks. The 6 new tracks are not technically new, just a few remixes and acappellas. But still yet, they are worth a listen. Check out “Stankonia“(Deluxe) by Outkast below.
Outkast turned up the pace with their single “B.O.B“(Bombs Over Baghdad). Check out the video below.
Goodie Mob also went back to their classic debut album “Soul Food” from 1995 and put out the “25th Anniversary Expanded” version of the album.
“Soulfood” was so groundbreaking at the time of its’s release and even coined the term “Dirty South“. Label mates Outkast showed up on the album and there are not too many who will dispute the classical status of the album. Their first single “Cell Therapy” had us all “woke” and established Goodie as a force to be reckoned with. All 19 of the original tracks are intact with an additional 8 tracks. The 8 new tracks are not technically new, just a few remixes and acappellas. But still yet, they are worth a listen. Check out “Soul Food“(25th Anniversary Expanded) by Goodie Mob below.
Goodie Mob changed the entire dialect of the south with this track. Check out “Dirty South” by Goodie Mob below.
