Every time I try and get peace of mind, a n*gga try and take a piece of mine, so I got to grab my piece….the first time I heard that line as the beat dropped on return of the G it’s like Hip Hop God spoke into my musical mind and said let there be light. Aquemini is one of those albums that makes you appreciate one rap with substance , prior to hearing this album you could say I was one of those cats who walked into stores looking for that pimp trick gangsta click album. Aquemini also blessed us with the classic that is Rosa Parks, I dare you sit still while this songs plays and I dare your grandparents not to have flashbacks between the 2:28 – 2:56 marks of party favorite.
Though outkast will provide the songs for us to get it move to they wouldn’t be dopest group ever if they didn’t give us tracks to think about how we live on a daily. Those tracks that make you slow a down a bit and think about how we are living, tracks like da art of story tellin pt 1&2 , Mamacita , and of course the smooth ass track that is spottieottiedopaliscious.
However, with all the dope songs as previously mentioned my favorite song on this album is the title track. The reason I’m such a huge outkast fan is because the way the kick their rhymes with the smooth story telling fashion makes me feel like I’m on Headland and Delowe with big boi and dre. The title track gives me that feeling more than the others with a beat that sounds fresh out the dungeon the flow sounds like you chilling kast on the corner as they kick to you shit that’s been on their mind lately.
Aquemini may have been a little different to the Outkast fans upon release but as time went on and the more times this album was replayed I’m sure they see it as another Kast classic. * takes off shirt* NOW WHO ELSE WANNA F*CK WITH HOLLYWOOD COLE.
