OutKast to the Extreme

You don't often see interviews done in a hotel room, but that's just what this 1998 clip is: A 10-minute Q&A featuring a laid-back Dre and Big Boi discussing their new album Aquemini, the state of hip hop and "their formula." "This album is like OutKast extreme," Dre says.

Although the quality is fuzzy, this funky 1997 BET clip shows OutKast performing "Elevators" and "ATLiens." The real star of this video? Andre's yellow crochet cap.
