Not many in the world of hip hop have been able to duplicate the creative prowess of Outkast over the past 20 years. Just sift through their discography for proof of the unique twists and turns they’ve taken with each album.
Each time they’ve returned to the scene they’ve captured the public’s attention while blending musical borders. And now they’re back in full force in 2014.
Big Boi and Andre 3000 made their long awaited reunion last night at the Coachella Valley Arts and Music Festival, which is some sort of gathering that pulls fans from all walks of life and musical backgrounds.
It’s likely that most in the crowd was experiencing the full brunt of Outkast’s funk for the very first time. Lucky for those of us who couldn’t be there, the whole performance can be seen online. It’s not without it’s flaws, but it’s all we’ve got for now. Check the full setlist after the jump.
