There was a time when Pusha T once rhymed, “I can’t be bothered with paying homage to forefathers.” That anti-patriotism clearly didn’t carry into his Hip Hop citizenship, as King Push cites the likes of Outkast and Cee-Lo as artists that inspired him. 1994’s Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik gave us all a glimpse into the new era of Southern Hip Hop, as Outkast set the new standard. ”Git Up, Git Out’ was probably my favorite joint,” Pusha T says of Outkast’s debut opus.
“It introduced me to Cee Lo, and I thought he sounded so incredible on the hook that I didn’t know what that tone was.” The track brought us all into the world of the burgeoning Dungeon Family, with Cee-Lo and Big Gipp of Goodie Mob both representing for their collective. “I didn’t know anything,” says Pusha upon hearing the cut. “I just thought it was great.” Check out the song and video, and Happy 20th Anniversary to Outkast.
