Song of the Week (Week 9 of 2023)

Song: Da Art of Storytelling Pt. 2

Album: Aquemini (1998)

Artist: OutKast

Thoughts: I finished reading Dilla Time, and I immediately dove into Kevin Young’s The Grey Album. I would recommend reading this book if you have not already. In The Grey Album Young theorizes this idea of “Storying”. He uses the phrase to explain how Black folks story tell to make life. In other words, he sees stories as Blackness. I have be thinking about this a lot lately. Like what stories do I tell? Why do I tell these stories? And what do these stories do for me? Here is one of the greatest stories in hip-hop. Enjoy!
