List Rules This list includes studio albums only, so if you add an album make sure it's a proper studio release.

OutKast are considered by many to be one of the best alternative hip hop groups and the best rappers of all time. Since they’re such an influential band, let’s rank the best OutKast albums, with the help of your votes. Formed in 1991 by Atlanta-based rappers André "André 3000" Benjamin and Antwan "Big Boi" Patton, OutKast’s blend of sexy southern funk, smooth rap, and inventive production ushered in a new subgenre of hip-hop beginning with their strong debut in Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik (1994) and gaining Top 40 success with Speakerboxxx/The Love Below (2003) and it’s leadoff single, “Hey Ya!”

To make it easy for you, we haven't included OutKast singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest OutKast album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves.

This list of popular OutKast CDs, such as Aquemini (1998) and Stankonia (2000) has been voted on by music fans around the world, so the order of this list isn't just one person's opinion. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite OutKast album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.
