The BlackTop Playlist: OUTKAST & MONÁE

Saturday 26 May 10.30pm

The second instalment of the BlackTop Playlist series will explore music of iconic, eccentric and celebrated hip hop artists: OutKast & Janelle Monae.
OutKast are known for popularising Southern hip hop, and mixing it with elements of funk, jazz and rock. The evolution of their musical style and lyrical content have been described by Rolling Stone as “idiosyncratic” and “inspired by the Afrocentric psychedelics of George Clinton and Sly Stone.”

Janelle Monae is heralded as the sister to the iconic hip hop duo. Not only did she collaborate with the group on their album Idlewild, but her unique sound is indicative of the genre-smashing ferocity of OutKast. She has established herself as an icon of the modern day female empowerment movement, with her latest releases celebrating precisely this.

Book your tickets early and come immerse yourself in the latest BlackTop Playlist!
