Pick of the Day – July 2nd: a throwback…Outkast’s Aquemini

Outkast – Aquemini

This morality play of a record is one of the best hip hop albums ever, and really a classic in music history. Basically a perfect, play all the way through album.  I listened to this non-stop my first year in college, so it has some sentimentality for me.  This was one of those albums that shaped my ears for the future.  Looking back, it was an incredibly conscious and mature album in sound and theme (Big and Andre went from good to great lyricists here, though Andre is a definitely the nicer MC.).  If you do not have this album, you should be trying to cop it.
