Outkast Da Art of Storytelling

Da Art of Storytelling by Outkast was another single off the Aquemini album. The song received wide appraises and was accompanied by an interesting video.

The song has no real meaning or message but rather illustrates Big Boi and Andre�s storytelling abilities, hence the name of the song.

In my opinion, Big Boi once again comes with a real strong, solid verse, but it�s Dre verse that takes Da Art of Storytelling song over the top. In the song, Dre touches more on our emotions by first painting a bright picture of happiness and joy then suddenly switching to tragedy with his story ending.

Favorite Lines

Talkin bout what we gonna be when we grow up
I said what you wanna be, she said, "Alive" (hmm)
It made me think for a minute, then looked in her eyes

This is perhaps one of my most favorite lines from Dre and one of his deepest in my opinion. The line is simple yet very introspective. It�s a great description of the lack of vision and goals that plague many of our most beloved people in the world. In the song, Dre questions her on the one thing she would like be in her future and she simply replies by saying she would like to be �alive� when she grows up. Additionally, the line is a sad but often times true portrayal of the mentality that many people who feel trapped in their small world possess, never being able to envision anything past the world they know.

But two weeks later she got found in the back of a school
With a needle in her arm, baby two months due, Sasha Thumper

This line is a good illustration of the vivid pictures that Dre is capable of producing in his raps, making him one of the top storytellers in the hip-hop game in my opinion. The line bluntly shows the sad result what will often happen to those with little to no goals and how the people of your past will not always be able to rise above their oppression.

I coulda died, time went on, I got grown
Rhyme got strong, mind got blown, I came back home
to find lil Sasha was gone
Her mamma said she with a nigga that be treatin her wrong
I kept on singin my song and hopin at a show
that I would one day see her standin in the front row

This line is a good portrayal of what often happens after you�ve had the courage to step out the protection of your comfort zone and venture off to new places. You will often come back home to find that for the most part many things still have not changedAnd many of your old acquaintances may have veered off toward the wrong past. As bad as you want for things to be different and as much as you hope for the better, it is just not always possible. I didn�t want to believe it but had to finally accept this fact the first time I came back home from college.
