Outkast – Speakerboxxx / The Love Below: The Samples

Speakerboxxx / The Love Below

The second OutKast set from Ivan and me today is for their certified diamond double-CD Speakerboxxx / The Love Below, the highest-selling rap album ever according to the RIAA.

Released in ’03, each disc is held in high regard among music heads as a modern-day masterpiece. Big Boi’s Speakerboxxx is heralded for its loyalty to the thump-centric OutKast of old while Andre’s off-the-wall The Love Below received critial praise for its innovative, free-flowing nature. This project also marked the departure of Organized Noize as producers, as the duo themselves took sole control the boards with brief assistance from Mr. DJ, Carl Mo, Cutmaster Swiff & Dojo5.

The sample selection is as diverse as the album itself, especially since the majority were featured on Andre’s portion.  Everything from hip-hop (Geto Boys, Volume 10) to funk (Parliament) to soul (The Four Tops, Patti LaBelle) and classic jazz (John Coltrane) is represented here, creating a sound beyond the confines of any particular genre.

Regardless of your thoughts on the album, there’s no denying it pushed the metaphorical envelope for a sonically-pleasing experience. I hope you find the music behind the final product is just as entertaining, Enjoy!
