This title is about a transitional album, fantastically straddling a middle road between regional sounds and mass-popular hits. "Aquemini" is in essence a tour of the people and places of Atlanta. Listening, you feel a distinct sense of place. With that in mind, this book is not simply a study of Outkast and their third album, it is also a tactile meditation on Atlanta as an historical atlas of the past ten years. When Big Boi and Dre released "Aquemini", in the wake of the East Coast/West Coast rap feud, amidst the superficial glitter of post-Biggie-Smalls Puff Daddy, few were looking to Atlanta. How things have changed. Outkast's debut and follow-up album were still homegrown hits, carried on the shoulders and dollars of other southerners. Aquemini on the other hand, is the record that brought Outkast to a national stage, earning a Grammy nomination for the single 'Rosa Parks'. Conceptually, Aquemini aims to create a document that's both a visual and written account of a time and brings to life a culturally specific experience. This is a journalistic account augmented by photographs, snippets of dialogue, artifacts, and of course the authors own musings.
