OutKast – Elevators (Me & You)

I recently noticed the other day that there is a lack of OutKast material on this here blog, so I’m posting the video for one of their early joints that made me a fan. Though Kast introduced themselves to the world with their debut Southernplayalisticcadillacmuzik, their sophomore album put them in the limelight, and helped branded their style of creativity and lyricism.
