Outkast Player’s Ball for Throwback Thursday

Outkast has been viewed as one of the greatest rap groups of all time. Billboard crowned them the greatest rap group/duo ever. The last album Outkast released was the Idlewild Soundtrack back in 2006. You can’t really call that an Outkast album, which means you must go back to Halloween of 2000. Stankonia was the name, and it went 5X platinum and they never put another album out together. Everything started back in 1994 with Outkast as they released their debut album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik. Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik went platinum and put Outkast on the map. The first single was Player’s Ball, and it was a smooth, laid-back track. Speaking of Outkast and the Player’s Ball single, there’s a nice story about them and meeting them before they blew up. Outkast was at FreakNik promoting the single and handing them out to people.

The Player’s Ball disc they were giving away was a yellow and purple CD and man I wish I still had it. Either way, let’s take it back to the beginning of Outkast and their classic Player’s Ball. Player’s Ball is my Throwback Thursday joint. Check out the video above and below you can peep at the track listing and stream link to Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik.
