    Since Outkast began an indefinite hiatus shortly after the release of Idlewild in 2006, their unique sound has been greatly missed in the rap game and beyond. Big Boi brought 50% of the equation back in 2010 with his critically-acclaimed solo album Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty which he followed up this past December with Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumours.

    The importance of an album can be measured in several ways. Some are deemed iconic because of sale figures, others by the creativity and artistic integrity of the work, others still by their cultural influence. Although it's very rare for an album to nail all of these criteria, Dr. Dre's debut solo project did just that and then some. Now, 21 years after its release, let us roll some green and...

    Atlanta. Just a mention of the city in hip-hop circles conjures up thoughts of trap (and maybe crunk and So So Def-style bass music if you're a bit older), a sound that's been dominating the region since T.I. first hit the scene over a decade ago. But some artists from the A don't fit into that box, opting to cut their own path rather than getting swept up in the prevailing current. Wara From The...
