Speakerboxxx/The Love Below


In 2003, iconic Atlanta-based hip-hop duo OutKast—aka Big Boi and André 3000—released their split album Speakerboxxx/The Love Below wherein each artist created their own record, but released them as one. Big Boi’s 808-driven Speakerboxx leans into southern hip-hop via electronic and soulful flair. On the flip side, André 3000’s The Love Below overflows with eccentricities, combining R&B, electronic, jazz and funk. Altogether, the 40-track album—available as a 4LP vinyl set—remains a powerhouse.
