Frequently touted as one of the best duos in rap history, Outkast
continue to hint at their glory days with collabs from members Andre 3000
and recent talk-of-the-town Big Boi
. The b-side from Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son Of Chico Dusty
(Boi's blistering solo album) featuring the two together ("Looking For Ya") recently underwent a remix makeover. This new "Jedi" version is so excruciatingly good, it's a painful reminder of just how abysmal (and detrimental) the label disputes keeping Andre off the record really were. F*cking suits.
The "Jedi Remix" finds new lyrics for the already well-known "Lookin' For Ya" b-side, and boy are they a doozy. 3000 drops one of the most artfully crafted lyrics of the year on this one. Check it out (and own it) below. -joe puglisi
