OutKast to reissue ‘Stankonia’ for 20th anniversary

The landmark album featured hits like “Ms Jackson” and “So Fresh, So Clean.”

OutKast have announced a 20th anniversary reissue of their landmark fourth studio album, Stankonia.

Originally released on October 30, 2000 via LaFace Records, the record spawned platinum hits in tracks like “Ms Jackson,” “So Fresh, So Clean” and “BOB (Bombs Over Baghdad).” In 2001, the LP won the hip hop duo—comprising André 3000 and Big Boi—the Grammy Awards for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Performance By a Duo or Group for “Ms Jackson.” Stankonia was also up for Grammy Album of the Year, but lost to the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack album.

According to Variety, the upcoming reissue will be available in both physical and digital formats, and will include bonus instrumental and acapella tracks, plus a previously unreleased remix of “BOB” by Zack de la Rocha of Rage Against the Machine.

Following Stankonia, André 3000 and Big Boi went on to release two more albums together—2003’s Speakerboxxx/The Love Below and 2006’s Idlewild—before going on hiatus. Both rappers are currently pursuing solo endeavors.

Earlier this year, Big Boi hinted that he had a collaboration with Kate Bush in the works. Meanwhile, André 3000 recently appeared on Logic’s final album No Pressure on the track “GP4.”
