After starring in a 2006 musical film called ''Idlewild'' (the soundtrack of which is the group's most recent album), [=OutKast=] went on hiatus the following year, with both members pursuing solo careers. However, the two briefly reunited for a tour in 2014 to [[MilestoneCelebration celebrate their 20th anniversary]]. The two have said that they'll record new material together once they've both put out solo albums. Big Boi's album, ''Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty'', was released in 2010 [[ScheduleSlip after repeated delays]] to rave reviews; in 2012 he released his sophomore album, ''Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors'', which was also positively reviewed. Andre 3000 has appeared ever so often to chime in a verse, such as on Music/{{Drake}}'s "The Real Her" and several songs by [[Music/{{OFWGKTA}} Frank Ocean]] ("Pink Matter", "Solo (Reprise)"), but [[ScheduleSlip as for his solo album...]]

* AlbumFiller: "West Savannah" on ''Aquemini'', while not a bad song at all, this record was a leftover from the first album and was included for the sake of being included.

** The almost ridiculously upbeat sounding "Roses" is one gigantic "The Reason You Suck" speech to an extremely conceited girl. Some of Andre's lyrics get really dark, such as mentioning that he wants her to die in a car crash and the fact that he reports "crazy bitch" at least ten times in a row.

* NonIndicativeFirstEpisode: 'Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik'', while generally considered to be on par with the rest of their work, had more urban themes than their later releases, and didn't feature the eclectic mix of genres they would later become known for.

Getting their start in 1990, hip-hop duo [=OutKast=] ended up becoming one of the most vital and dynamic music groups of the 2000's. Benjamin and Patton met while attending Tri-Cities High School, a Visual and Performing Arts School. Benjamin's parents were divorced and he was living with his father. Meanwhile, Patton had to move with his four brothers and six sisters from Savannah to Atlanta. Benjamin and Patton eventually teamed up and were pursued by Organized Noize, a group of local producers who would later make hits for Music/{{TLC}}. The duo initially wanted to be called "2 Shades Deep" or "The Misfits", but because those names were already taken they later decided to use "[=OutKast=]" based on finding "outcast" as synonym for "misfit" in a dictionary. [=OutKast=], Organized Noize, and schoolmates Goodie Mob formed the nucleus of the Dungeon Family organization.

** It was probably a service to fans who had asked about it since a small clip was used in the beginning of the Benz Or A Beamer video in 1995. It would never have fit on [=ATLiens=] but fits well on Aquemini.

** The whole Southernplayalisticadillacmusik album to some degree, though it deconstructs this trope as well.

Added DiffLines:

* GreatestHitsAlbum: "Big Boi And Dre Present Outkast" which featured three new tracks as well as several alternate mixes of older tracks.


Added DiffLines:

* RearrangeTheSong: The band's remixes often change the mood of the song, most notably "Jazzy Belle (Swift C Remix)" which makes it much more of a contemporary R&B song by adding guest vocals and more radio-friendly production., and the single version of "Da Art Of Storytellin' (Part 1)" which adds a verse from SlickRick.
** Aside from remixes, the band have two different recordings of 'Speedballin' (one was on a pre-order bonus disc for Stankonia and the other on the Tomb Raider: The Cradle Of Life soundtrack). They also have two different recordings of Gangsta Shit (one on a promo and the other on Stankonia).

*** The intros and interludes on all albums that have them are filler in their broadest form. They are entertaining for the most part, but didn't really need to be there. ''[=ATLiens=]'' only has one intro and is considered their most mature and cohesive album.
