OutKast is celebrating the 20th-anniversary of their seminal album Stankonia with a set of bonus tracks, previously unreleased remixes, streaming bundles and vinyl and digital editions.
According to reports, the digital re-release will arrive in 24-bit and 360 Reality Audio formats, and will feature a total of six bonus tracks that include a remix of “B.O.B. (Bombs Over Baghdad)” by Zack de la Rocha of Rage Against The Machine, a remix of “Ms. Jackson” by Mr. Drunk, a remix of “So Fresh, So Clean” with Snoop Dogg and Sleepy Brown, plus a cappella versions of the three songs. The cuts will also be offered with individual streaming bundles comprised of additional remixes from Fatboy Slim and the Goodie Mob x OutKast collab “Sole Sunday.”
Meanwhile, the Stankonia 20th anniversary vinyl edition will be exclusive to Vinyl Me, Please members as the club’s October record of the month. Pressed on a “Black and White Galaxy” vinyl, the double LP will also come with an art print.
Big Boi and André 3000 dropped Stankonia on October 31, 2000, and is widely considered as one of the greatest and influential hip-hop records of all time. The album sold more than 530,000 units in its first week but debuted at only No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
Elsewhere in music, Tory Lanez has officially been charged with the shooting of Megan Thee Stallion.
