woah ease up dog. i must have touched on a sensitive subject. no need to get personal and start dissin. now who's lookin like a fool?

back to the subject, if you have aquemini, i suggest you bump "west savannah" that song was meant to be on SPLCM but it didn't end up on the album. check out "slump", "da art of storytellin pt. 1" and "spottieottiedopalicious" straight classic songs.

but to say dre doesn't have skill anymore? damn. check this, goodie mob released soul food in 97 (but since your "one of the biggest south heads in here, i guess you already know). which was right before aquemini came out (1998) if you listen to "thought process" and hear dre rhyme, and still say he doesn't have skill then i don't know what else to say.

and i may be part of the majority for liking outkast. if thats wrong then i'll never be right. but realize that you are part of a majority (albeit a naive majority) that stereotypes people for how they look and what they wear. i hope you come out of it someday. you'll realize how much you've missed because of it. peace

Well, I'm not a huge hiphop head, I just like good music.  Outkast is good music.  their first album, mighta been better in your tastes, but I've always like Aquemini better.  So it's just your opinion, no big deal.  I could care less what people wear, but whatever floats your boat... The first time I saw the video for "Players Ball" i was pretty surprised that Dre was just wearin' a t-shirt, lol, I wasn't a fan back in the day when that video dropped.  If yall think Dre has lost it, your crazy.  I thought he was hella dope even on Stankonia.  Ms. Jackson is their biggest commercial song, and he was dope as hell on THAT.

i never once said dre doesnt have skill...post where i said he doesnt have skill...dre does have skill...not as much as people say he does...but he has skill...i just think that big boi is the more talented out of the duo...and peep it...in hip hop theres many thinks i look at...music first...image second...his image is lame to me...just like people clown camron for rockin pink...its a wack look...and it further makes me dislike him more...now...i still wasnt completley against outkast after atliens or their spot on the soul food album...and hell i still like their spots on the slimm calhound & cool breeze records...but as a group...to me theyre wack now...just like goodie mob did...i think outkast should break up and go seperate ways...big boi is always outside the spotlight...when he deserves more...

well lets see i'll quote your last line "if big boi went solo, i wouldn't mind tho...he still got skills" and you're contradicting yourself now. you said you listened to ATLiens when if first came out and haven't listened to it since, you also called it crap--crap compared to who? it sounds to me like you wrote them off. i just can't understand saying somebody's wack because of how they dress. image means shit when i listen to music. if its dope then i bump it, regardless of what the person looks like. peace

how am i contradicting myself?...i just said big boi still has skill...i didnt once say dre didnt...did i?...no...u and i still havent listened to it since...and its crap compared to Southerplayalistic...that was the complete album...best beats...best rhymes...stankonia kinda brought my hopes up that they might go back to their old style...but it crushed it by the end of that album...now ur so damn stuck on the clothes...lemme splain it to u one more time...S-L-O-W-L-Y...i grew accustom to seein the laid back clothing of outkast of old...when i saw those loud ass colors and strange furry things dre was wearin i almost flipped out...he looked like a complete fool...to me his image was lame and it was taking away from the credibility of outkast...i couldnt take a guy runnin around in suspenders and football pads serious anymore...oh and not to mention...after i seen outkast live...i could not stand them anymore...that had to be one of the worst shows ever...

you said "he still got skills" implying that dre doesn't. don't say you weren't. it's ok i'll let it go. and you're the one concerned with clothes. you said image is your SECOND most important thing when you look at a group. if you were that stunned about dre, i can only imagine the look on your face after you saw 8ball and MJG in their video for buck bounce. i bet you shit your pants.

u mustve took it that way...i would never go out and say..."dre has absolutely has no skills" cuz he does...hes just not on daddy fats saks' level...and i had no clue about that buck bounce video...that shit was a tight song...but that video was weird as fuck...Pimp Hard was much better

well with that then you've just proven my point. you admit the song was tight. in the video 8ball's big ol' ass is in this whole robot attire. he looks straight out of terminator 2. so i'm guessin you're gonna have to quit bumpin them cuz of how they dressed for that video huh.

Naw.. it's understandable

I know a couple a people who dont like that about Dre.ESPECIALLY tha people who were down with Outkast before  ATLiens. People might see it as a gimmick. Which makes it feel not as real as it used to be...

well i'm not gonna even front. the first outkast cd i bought was ATLIENS, then SPLCM. but after hearing SPLCM, it made me appreciate atliens even more. and from the beginning i've said that i understand people sayin that they changed their style. they did, but i think they have still stayed true to themselves. on aquemini there were only a few songs that were futuristic sounding, and a lot of songs that were consistent with their old style. everyone is entitled to their opinion on music. i just said that its hard to respect someones opinion on music when that opinion is based on what someone looks like. he said he couldn't take seeing dre dressing how he was. then in the other thread he said 8ball and MJG were better (which i can understand) but they did the exact same thing in their video AFTER outkast. so basically he was contradicting himself. then it got to even more outrageous statements like the clipse were better than outkast, which really tests the validity of any of his prior statements.

holy shit!! you mean to tell me he dresses like that in PUBLIC?!? why didn't you say that in the first place? to dress like that in a video is one thing, but this is obviously going to far.(runs upstairs and proceeds to burn all outkast cd's)

dear god: i know i don't pray often, but i'm praying now. let this dude hear me out once and for all. thank you.

I never once had a problem with anyone disliking any group whatsoever. EVERYONE HAS THEIR OPINION. but i find it amusing and somewhat scary that someone would base their musical opinion on what someone looks like/dresses like. that was my point, and i felt like you were being hypocritical. and relax, i believe you have lots of knowledge when it comes to hip-hop. i think i can sum it up by saying it doesn't matter to me what someone looks like. if its dope i buy it. i could give a fuck about their image. IMO thats not what makes a musician.

u make it seem like the first thing i look at is their image...which is the complete opposite...of course i listen to the music first...then i worry about their image...its like if i hear this guy talkin all this crip shit...then i see him rockin nothin but red...i aint gonna take him serious...it may be scary or whatever but fuck it...everyone has their own ways of lookin at shit....

well in my opinion, image is what fucks music up in the first place. ESPECIALLY HIP HOP. i think if more rappers were more concerned about lyrics/production rather than if people are going to judge them for what they are wearing, their music wouldn't suffer as much. people need to decide if they want dope music or if they want rappers to dress in a way that pleases them. i'm not trying to say you don't put music first. you stated that very clearly. but you also said that the second most important thing you judge them by is their image. i don't see how what someone wears can make your opinion of their MUSIC. peace

ok now let me explain. i totally understand what you are sayin. you can't take them serious because they (%95 of the time dre) dress differently. and with your comparison of applying for your job does not apply at all with this conversation. appearance counts like a motherfucker in applying for a job. it shows how serious you are about the job. i don't look for someones appearance when i decide whether to bump their music. when i'm bumpin in my truck i'm not thinking to myself, "shit i wonder what they're wearing right now". to deny someone's musical skill/talent because of what they wear is ignorant. i can understand you not feeling a particular artist, it may not be your taste. i'm totally fine with that. but if their image plays a big enough role on whether or not you're going to denounce them as musicians, then its hard for someone like me who looks strictly at the music to totally respect that viewpoint. its like when you say you don't like a song-in my mind i'm gonna think, well he may not be basing it on the music. peace
