"OutKast 2K19 (an EarthGang post)"


  

          

So, I know the title of this post is gonna rub a lot of folks the wrong way, and may turn ya'll off to what I'm about to present... But I had to get you in the door. Now that you're here though, why are ya'll sleeping on EarthGang?! Their album, MirrorLand is slated to drop next month and it's one of my most anticipated releases of 2019. Don't know who they are? Cool. I gotchu. Tell me this shit ain't fire.

Up (if you only watch one, watch this one)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgNVvtOp8mU

Stuck
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAt2opBKt9M

Robots
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TK5YW8tJsx8

Meditate feat. JID (who you should also be up on at this point)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skw3kUycvpo

Now to be clear, EarthGang is not better than Kast. Not as good as Kast. But in 2019, they're the closest we've got (and the similarities are uncanny).
And as a bonus they previewed a couple more tracks from MirrorLand on IG the other day (Up and Stuck should be there too), and here's that:

They're weird, they're from Atlanta, and that one dude definitely tries to emulate 3k. But nah. "Next OutKast" as the first commenter on that first video terms them, is kind of insulting haha.

In response to Reply # 2


  

          

Every single person I know who has listened to then has come to the same conclusion. Every single person without any prompting says "Dang they remind me of OutKast" Or "I get OutKast vibes from these dudes" People just don't like be told that upfront, it turns them off. But they are in a lot of ways, a lot like OutKast. A duo from Atlanta, who makes "weird" music compared to what the rest of the region is doing. Johnny Venus is a lot like Andre stylistically and WowGr8 (formerly Doctur Dot) is a lot like Big in that he's the "regular" Atlanta nigga of the two (but a different generation of "regular").
Don't get me wrong, OutKast is my favorite group of all time and Andre my favorite rapper of all time. And if you'd read my entire post -- I don't think EarthGang is better, or even as good as Kast. But if you think the comparison isn't apt, you're lying to yourself.

In response to Reply # 4


          

Didn't mean to come off so dismissive but re-reading what I wrote it def *does* come off that way so my bad.

You did add the qualifiers so we're on the same page for the most part. I guess my gripe would just be that putting them on that pedestal right off the bat results in unfair expectations for THIS group, even if most people would naturally come to the conclusion that there are clear similarities on their own, as you rightfully said.

I mean I definitely see it and hear it. So again we're on the same page there. I guess it's just my natural inclination to get fired up anytime anyone tries to compare another group to OutKast lol.

Meditate from the Rags EP was cool, but I think JID was the deciding factor.

But even on songs where I don’t like his voice, the beats are usually super hoard, which makes up the deficit.

They work really well together. But I get the feeling their different approaches to making music wouldn't lend well to them actually being in a group together on a personal level.
