“It’s so much to be said for a group that hasn’t made music in a decade,” said T.I," who's currently working on a joint album with Boosie Badazz. “It’s timeless and still speaks to the now… Anytime Outkast in there that’s an easy one for me ... And Future comes from the school of Outkast, a Dungeon Family alumni … Outkast, I definitely think they hold the crown.”

Tip also bigged up the duo's 1994 classic, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik.

“It’s like the holy grail," he explained. "As far as mainstream global recognition, that’s the first of its kind for real. I truly do think Southernplayalistic is the alpha."

Would you say OutKast are the best rappers to ever come out of Atlanta?
