A beautiful lil birdie suggested that I make an Outkast mix since they were reuniting for Coachella, so here goes 78 minutes of dope music from one of the greatest duos of all-time. Mixed live by yours truly. Stank you very much.
Oh, the beatiful birdie gave me some more fie mix ideas so stay tuned this week.
I have this episode on VHS and the crowd was really hesitant to give them love but they couldn’t deny that they were rocking it. This is right when Erykah’s influence was starting to show on Dre because he came out when they did “Elevators” with an incense lol.
Yes, this is new music from Outkast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I must say it’s FIE! It’s four verses, with two of them being new. The song originally was an unrelased song from Big Boi’s solo (which is a must buy) and is sorta like an upbeat 2K10 version of “I Can’t Wait” from the Barbershop 2 soundtrack. This right here has me amped for a new album because both Big Boi and Dre 3K DESTROY the beat and I’m still mad label politics kept Dre off of Big Boi’s solo. My patna said that Dre is like Bruce Leroy in The Last Dragon: He can kick everybody’s tail but he refuses to fight lol
“Strugglin’s just a part of my day Many obstacles have been placed in my way I know the only reason that I make it through Is because I never stop believing in You Some people wonder why we here in the first place They can’t believe cause they ain’t never seen Your face But even when you pray, the next day you gotta try Can’t wait for nobody to come down out the sky You’ve got to realize that the world’s a test You can only do your best and let Him do the rest You’ve got your life And got your health So quit procrastinating and push it yourself”
This is probably my favorite Outkast song and is powerful spiritual music. I probably listen to this song everyday. Cee-Lo’s verse especially reminds you that even though you have faith, God’s not going to magically fix everything. We still have to put forth the effort first and let the Lord do the rest. Nobody said being a Christian was easy lol.
This has to be one of the realest songs I’ve ever heard and helped me get through the toughest time of my life. As I get older, I appreciate and understand it more and more. Crazy that I been bumpin this since 5th grade in ’95. I don’t know what music these yungins now raised on
