This Day In Hip Hop and Rap History

April 26th - Outkast release their classic debut album, “Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik”, on LaFace Records on this day in 1994.

The set by the famed ATL duo was produced by resident production team Organized Noize and was instantly praised by fans and critics alike.

The set’s fresh and unique sound was influenced by multiple sources such as P-Funk, Prince, Sly And The Family Stone and hip-hop from Houston’s Rap-A-Lot label.

The album would spawn the classic hit singles “Player’s Ball”, “Git Up, Git Out” and the title track.

The platinum-selling debut would also feature guest appearances by fellow ATL crew and posse partners Goodie Mob.

“Southerplayalisticadillacmuzik” is one the most impressive and praised debut albums by a hip-hop group ever.
