Located in the Main Exhibit Hall.

The members of OutKast, Antwan “Big Boi” Patton and Andre “Dre” Benjamin, attended high school together in Atlanta. They signed to LaFace Records right out of high school. Their first single, “Player’s Ball,” was released in 1994 and topped the rap charts for six weeks. The band’s debut album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, hit the Top 20 in 1994 and was certified platinum by the end of the year. Dre changed his name to Andre 3000 before the group issued its fourth album, Stankonia, in late 2000. Stankonia debuted at Number Two and went triple platinum in just a few months. The album featured the singles "B.O.B.," “So Fresh, So Clean” and "Ms. Jackson," the latter becoming OutKast’s first Number One pop single in February 2001. The duo’s ambitious double album, Speakerboxxxx: The Love Below, was released in September 2003. Singles from the album include “The Way You Move,” “Roses” and “Hey Ya!” Andre 3000 wore this outfit in the video for “Roses.”
