“B.O.B.” by OutKast

Sixteen years ago on Halloween, OutKast released one of the most ambitious and dynamic hip-hop albums ever. Heavily influenced by gospel, afrobeat, rock and, most obviously, funk music, Stankonia somehow embraces all of these elements and creates a self-sustaining world that is still unique to André 3000 and Big Boi to this day. “B.O.B.” (Bombs over Baghdad) in particular is a hyper-kinetic, bombastic romp that lyrically delves through everything including politics, religion, and life’s hardships all in the span of a mere few minutes.
