Music Collective: vol. 14 {#OutkastATLast}

The big day has finally arrived; the Outkast ATLast concert in Atlanta's own Centennial Olympic Park, right back where it all began.  I'm excited to be around old friends, good music, and to be able witness the homecoming of one of the greatest hip-hop duos of all time, largely responsible for the development of hip-hip in the south. And anyone who knows me, knows that no matter how expansive my music collection can be, I will have a special place in my heart for those heavy bass lines and southern drawls that always remind me of a city that will forever be home. 

With a few exceptions, the line-up is pretty phenomenal, so I anticipate a great show. It will be my first time seeing Janelle Monae since she's blown up as a mainstream artist, first time ever seeing Solange and Bun B. perform so, I'm just hype about it all.

By the way, if you're an Atlanta blogger, or a blogger here for a weekend road trip, and will be in attendance at the Friday show, hit me up via Twitter and we'll see if we can do a miniature meet-up. (Now that I think about it, I probably should have scheduled this for earlier in the week, but...procrastination.). If you see me, don't be too shy to speak, especially on a day that I'm in an extremely happy-go-lucky and friendly mood.

So without further ado, as an ode to this entire weekend, I present my 2-part #OutkastDay essentials play list (with links to a few):
