When OutKast Became en vogue
There was a time when it wasn’t cool to be from the south. At one point, southern rap wasn’t considered a genre in Hip Hop. That fact was made apparent at the 1995 Source Awards in New York City when Atlanta duo, OutKast, accepted their award for Best New Group. Overshadowed by the ensuing East Coast-West Coast conflict that took center stage that night, OuKast were barely noticed, aside from the hail storm of boos they received when they accepted their award from an already divided audience between coastal lines. New York, the epicenter and gatekeepers of Hip Hop, weren’t ready to fully embrace southern artists. Sonically, OutKast’s debut album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, was out of context with New York’s traditional Boom Bap, kick-snare-kicks-and-hi hat, drum pattern, that helped define the region’s sound in the early 90′s, so the deep fried southern delicacy that OutKast cooked up was an acquired taste for most Hip Hop elitists.
