Boom Moment In Hip-Hop

On this day in 2003, one of the greatest hip-hop duo’s of all time released their fifth studio album Speakerboxxx/The Love Below. The album had a very unique distribution, with over two hours of  music distributed over solo albums from Big Boi and Andre 3000. Speakerboxxx had that classic, southern hip-hop feel, with Andre 3000’s The Love Below was more pop, funk type of feel.

Hits included “Hey Ya!”, “The Way You Move” and “Roses”. The album was certified diamond and sold over 11 million units.
