On Saturday, November 26 2016, the Bay Area once again pays homage to Outkast, one of the greatest hip-hop duos of all time, THE ART OF STORYTELLIN’ Outkast Tribute Party at Oakland's Starline Social Club.
Emerging in 1994 on the Atlanta-based boutique LaFace Records, Outkast became the first southern US hip-hop act to achieve both commercial and critical success, and in the process shifted hip-hop’s capital from New York City to Atlanta, Georgia. Not only would Outkast’s emergence signal a creative shift in pop music, it would trigger tectonic movements in fashion and culture – with songs like “Liberation” and “Ms. Jackson” unifying the social commentary and community struggles of the diaspora worldwide.
Now in its fifth year, THE ART OF STORYTELLIN’ promises an extraordinary experience at the Starline Social Club in Oakland, California – another city fighting to reclaim its crown in the hip-hop and pop music firmament.
