    OutKast's Influence On Hip-Hop, Explained In Charts

    Before the big reunion tour starts, one OutKast fan tracks how the duo went from being underdogs to industry icons.

    When OutKast released their debut album in 1994, they put Southern hip-hop on the map.

    Over the years, they popularized Southern slang.

    But as they got older, OutKast talked less about the South than they had on their early albums.

    All that growth and experimentation eventually moved Big Boi and Andre 3000 away from each other, though.

    But the past is the past, and these guys will play no less than 40 festivals this Summer.
