Happy 20th Anniversary to Outkast's Stankonia

Come Halloween one of the biggest hip hop albums ever turns twenty years old as Outkast  fantastic Stankonia was released twenty years ago on that freaky night back in 2000. 

RtBE got an early copy of this record back in the day, right before a long road trip (conveniently with another record we recently highlighted) and instantly fell in love with this classic album. That love has lasted to this day and we ranked it high on our list of best albums of the 2000's for Glide. In revisiting that list, we should have ranked it even higher...

Everyone can have personal favorites, but Stankonia seems to be the pinnacle of Outkast's career. The band brought in outside genres, totally embraced their P-Funk roots and brought their dirty south style to an international level.

Each song still sounds dope and the album is immensely fun to return to. Let's celebrate the record in the best way possible, by listening to the tunes:
