Label: LaFace, Arista
Outkast's fourth album, and their last real collaborative one, has an awesome double-layered title. It sounds like "stank on ya"-which musically, this album most definitely succeeds in putting. But it also conjures up a magical, mystical long-lost land of fonkiness, one where "Here Comes a Bride" is interpolated into a banging divorce anthem (on "Ms. Jackson"), "B.O.B" is an apocalyptic musical headtrip instead of a rapper who sings too much, and best of all, Andre and Big Boi are still making dope music together.
