tt_outkast

Fusing hip-hop, funk, soul, electro and whatever else might be close by, Outkast created their own distinct brand of music in the ‘90s and well into the 21st century. Their back catalog is littered with some of the funkiest basslines since Sly & The Family Stone were a Top 10 group. Big Boi and Andre 3000 have again joined forces for a summer tour across a global mix of lucky-festivalgoers. This mix of their greatest hits syncs nicely with the cuts they have been performing live.

Listen to the Outkast: Rewind playlist on Music Unlimited.

BoB_FBAtlanta-based rapper B.o.B. is famous for his esoteric rhymes and genre-busting collaborators like Taylor SwiftBruno Mars and Paramore’s Hayley Williams. So it’s no wonder that his Music Unlimited artist picks list features so many unlikely influences, such as Green Day, MGMT and Death Cab For Cutie.

B.o.B. explains, “These are tracks that not only I like but, more importantly, this playlist represents what I am all about – as it bridges together all different types of music. It includes songs that have influenced me along the way, including old school artists from my hometown of Atlanta (Outkast, Cee-Lo Green of Gnarls Barkley), to tracks that helped convert me to a full-fledged rock fan (Green Day), to artists that first inspired me to rap (DMX). Some of these tracks (“Kids” by MGMT) were so influential to me, that I’ve even covered them live. From Coldplay to Lil’ Wayne, this represents B.o.B.”
