Clifford Harris, Jr. and Andre Benjamin are two of my favorite Atlanta-based rappers. They came together on a track produced by Jazze Pha for Tip’s 2012 album, Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head. T.I.’s southern drawl is perfectly complemented by 3 Stacks rapid-fire rhyme flow. The lyrics are realer than real. It’s one of those songs you can play on repeat a few times just to absorb the enormity of the artists and the artistry.
I was one of many people who tuned in to the Outkast reunion at Coachella live from my bedroom. It left me as an Outkast fan too hyped to go to sleep afterward, and I ended up lying awake until at least 3 a.m. discussing it with other fans.

A lot of what I saw being tweeted during the concert was dismay for the crowd who seemed to not appreciate what was happening right before their very eyes in living flesh. Admittedly, I was disappointed in the crowd too, but as many pointed out, the people in the crowd were not necessarily there for Outkast; they were there for Coachella, and that is entirely different.
In any case, here is the full set for those of you who will appreciate it and for those of you who may come to appreciate it.
What did you think of the Outkast performance? Did the crowd make you mad? Let me know in the comments.
