"Elevators" is the song that really showed you how much OutKast were actually outcasts. Sounding nothing like they did their debut, the ATLiens took a complete 180 with this song, but it worked. It was also the first signal of OutKast's desire to produce their own songs and not rely solely on Organized Noize.
There was an early controversy with this track; Big Boi gave the song to Greg Street ahead of time to play on the radio, and LaFace Records promptly sent C&D letters to the DJ, asking that he not play it any longer, at least until they were ready to officially release it.
