The Ultimate Outkast Setlist (30+ Songs We Want To Hear On Their Comeback Tour)

outkast_polaroids

With just one day remaining before the debut performance of Outkasts highly anticipated 40-stop reunion festival tour, we ninjas can not contain our excitement. To keep ourselves occupied as we impatiently wait for Coachella to kick off, we spent the last week putting together our dream setlist from the legendary hip-hop duo. For anyone who will be in attendance during Andre 3000 and Big Boi‘s marathon of a tour, this playlist should certainly prepare you for what promises to be an incredible string of shows. If you won’t be able to make it, we hope that this will be the next best thing.

We’ve also put these tracks in a SpottieOttiefy Playlist (we mean Spotify, in case you didn’t get our sly ninja joke) for those “ATLiens’ out there who want to listen to “GhettoMusick” when they “Git Up, Git Out” and explore “The Whole World.”

[Hip-Hop] Atmosphere – Kanye West

Atmosphere - Kanye West
Atmosphere
Kanye West

Before you have a heart attack at the prospects of a hip-hop collaboration of unfathomable proportions, we want to stop you from making any dangerous assumptions. This is a song by Atmosphere, and the title of the song is “Kanye West.” Yeezy had no involvement with this song at all unfortunately, and nor is this a tribute to him either. The motivation for this one is best explained by Slug himself, who recently told Pigeons & Planes 

I wanted to write a song about loving something so much that you submit to the moment.
The single itself carries with it a familiarly gritty Atmosphere sound. It may be 2014, but Slug’s storytelling skills are as poignant as ever, and Ant‘s work behind the boards just as immaculate. Now that we’ve heard the first two singles from Southsiders, we could not be more excited for the release of the group’s upcoming album on May 6th. Stream the track above, and head over to iTunes to pre-order the album and receive copies of “Bitter” and “Kanye West” instantly. You can catch the official video for “Bitter” as well after the jump.

[Chill] EPISODE – Dust (Feat. Mree & Topaz Jones)

EPISODE
Dust Feat. Mree & Topaz Jones

As bloggers, we live for the moments when a song comes across our inbox that inexplicably grips us from the very first moments and never lets go. Calming is the word that instantly comes to mind when listening to EPISODE‘s “Dust,” as Mree‘s affectionately delicate, reassuring vocals snake their way around your body, and slowly melt all your worries away. By the time the drums kick in just prior to the one minute mark, you’ve already reached such a state of nirvana that it seems as if Topaz Jones‘ slick lyrics are effortlessly gliding over the lush instrumental. With the weather finally taking a turn in the right direction, there’s no better song we could imagine listening to during those breezy summer afternoons.

While not much is known about the mysterious NYC based production entity behind this blissfully enchanting tune, there’s no question in our minds that it’s only a matter of time before EPISODE become household names. Keep your fingers hovering over that play button, because repeat listens are inevitable. If you still can’t get enough (we really can’t blame you), head over to the group’s official website to snag yourself a free download of this amazing gem.

[NEW] Future – I Won (Feat. Kanye West)

Future I Won
Future
I Won (Feat. Kanye West)

Judging by the title, you’d think this song would be the anthem for Shabazz Napier to rock in the UConn locker room tonight. However, this song is referring to whole different type of winning, as Future and Kanye West detail how they landed first place in the wifey contest (knotting Ciara and Kim Kardashian respectively). While we would never personally recommend referring to your significant others as trophies, we’re pretty certain guys like Yeezy and Future can get away with it fairly easily. While we would have appreciated a banger from these two, we can’t hate on them for wanting to get in touch with their romantic sides.

Stream the sentimental single above, and look out for Future’s upcoming album, Honest, set to drop later this month on April 22nd.

[Hip-Hop] The Roots – When The People Cheer

When The People Cheer

If you’re like us here at TMN, Mondays probably aren’t your favorite your day of the week. After a long day back on the grind, it’s surprises like this that really can make it all worth it.

As they get set for the release of their first LP in nearly three years, The Roots have decided to share with us the lead single from the project, “When The People Cheer.” Contrary from what you might perceive from the title, the song is far from celebratory. Pensive in nature, the track features Black Thought utilizing a more melodic flow to start, before switching to a quietly thoughtful, yet emphatically determined cadence after the chorus. This is all balanced by some rhythmic drums and refined piano work provided by ?uestlove and the rest of The Legendary Roots Crew.

While a song like this won’t necessarily move the needle, it’s great to know that the band can still produce quality music over 20 years into their respective careers. Keep your eyes peeled for The Roots’ next album,  And Then You Shoot Your Cousin, out via Def Jam on May 13th.

[Hip-Hop] SZA – Babylon (feat. Kendrick Lamar)

SZA
Babylon feat. Kendrick Lamar

Just a day away from the release of her debut album, SZA keeps the buzz high letting loose a track featuring her fellow Top Dawg Entertainment  signee Kendrick Lamar. “Babylon” fits nicely with the tracks we have already heard from the project as SZA displays her uniquely airy sound over mellow, but heavy instrumental from DJ Dahi, the producer of a number of recent hits including “My Type of Party.” As expected, Kendrick delivers an amazing verse delving into the themes of introspection and solitude initially introduced by SZA. Enjoy this track above and look for on iTunes tomorrow.

[Hip-Hop] Joyner Lucas – No Strings Attached (Feat. Young Migs)

Joyner Lucas Feat. Young Migs
No Strings Attached

Joyner Lucas is an artist that’s been on our radar for quite awhile, but until today hasn’t been featured on the pages of TMN. Well, as you can see, that’s all about to change. The New England native’s most recent single is one that’s aimed directly at the ladies. Although not exactly the most romantic of hip-hop ballads, “No Strings Attached” accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do.

Lucas puts his elastic flow to proper use, masterfully manipulating the beat with a suave confidence that’ll have ladies everywhere swooning. This one however, wouldn’t be complete without the assistance of captivating crooner Young Migs, whose gorgeous vocals on the sexually charged chorus really put this one over the top.

More singles like this, and chances are you’ll be seeing Joyner’s name a lot more frequently. If you’re curious about what else the emcee is capable of, head over to his SoundCloud page to check out a few of his other recent tracks.
