Outkast, Aquemeni (1998) 

Label: LaFace

Asher: This was an album that hit me at a very impressionable time. The Raekwon feature on “Skew it the Barb” is brilliant. “Liberation” and “Spottiottidopalicous” changed my perspective of hip-hop. Aquemini opened up a world for me. I really tapped in, and I was like, “Holy shit.” I was introduced to a whole new sound. When I got introduced to that record, that’s when I found Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik and ATLiens. So that was huge.
