Outkast Ghetto Musick
Outkast Ghetto Musick
Ghetto Musick by Outkast was Big Boi�s second single off the Speakerboxxx half of Speakerboxxx/The Love Below. The single features mega superstar R&B; singer Pattie Labelle singing bridges and Andre 3000 singing the chorus.
The fifth release of the Speakerboxxx/The Love Below Album and the opening song to Speakerboxx, Ghetto Music begins the album in a highly energetic, vibrant motion. The song goes from hardcore rave then on over to soul never pausing a breath, making an oddly addictive combination for a song. The frantic pace of the song continues going from electro, then to P-funk, then a little swing, via mariachi, back to techno, and anything else that takes Big Boi�s Fancy. Outkast Ghetto Musick is hip-hop, but not as we�ve known it.
The Outkast GhettoMusick video in my opinion was also a great video. The video features some of Atlanta�s biggest stars including, Lil Jon, the Dunegon family, and more. In the video, Big Boi plays a delivery truck driver for �Fed Up.� He goes from house to house delivering packages while bouncing his shoulders and letting loose to his music. The basic concept of the video and the song is just to �find a way� to release some the of daily stresses of life (such as your job), and in this case, he does this through Ghetto Music. The video has a lot of comical scenes and was overall well-thought out.
Outkast Ghetto Musick:
Fight off the shit and flush the waste down
The pipes of my life flow deep into the ground
You just gotta love lines like this. Big Boi always comes so direct and draws pictures so clearly in his rhymes. In this line he�s basically say you have to shake off the bad and keep moving forward. The �pipes of his life� go deep in the ground and prove that he�ll remain strong and unshaken by the hard times.
Campaign in vein for the same lame fame, people obtain, you ought to be detainedBy the hip hop sheriff, locked up
no possibility of getting out cause the shit you make is
killing me and my ears, and my peers
In this line Big Boi is basically commenting on the trash that some call rap that often leak out in the hip-hop community. He speaks how rappers often simply rap about the same things (killing, drugs, sex) for the same chance at fame that others have gotten. That music and their mentality is killing hip-hop as a community and they should be detained and sentenced by the �hip-hop sheriff� for doing so.
