Atlanta-based rap outfit OutKast garnered its first two Grammy Awards Wednesday night, earning nods in the best rap performance duo or group category for their monster hit “Ms. Jackson,” and best rap album category for Stankonia.
Prior to receiving the best rap album award, OutKast performed a spirited rendition of “Ms. Jackson” backed by a band, three back-up singers, and a live backdrop of several children playing on a playground.
While accepting their best rap album Grammy, OutKast principals Big Boi and Andre 3000 thanked their label and told fans to watch out for new material.
“First, we want to give a, you know, a thanks to the Lord above for allowing us to be here and to participate in the Grammys. I want to give a shout out to our record company, Arista Records, L.A. Reid, Clive Davis. We got to give it up for Family Tree Management–that’s Blue Williams holding it down,” said Big Boi.
Andre 3000 added, “I just want to say a short thank you, and it’s only the beginning. We’re in the studio right now, working on new stuff. OutKast clothing company, all that, we love ya’ll. Look out for OutKast. Peace.”
