OUTKAST - 2 DOPE BOYZ: With this piece, I wanted to capture Outkast in each of their thematic changes from pimps to aliens to futuristic hip hop funksters. I think you have to be a true Outkast fan to appreciate the references in this piece, because like they said early on, “If you think it’s all about pimpin’ hoes and slammin’ Cadillac Vogues …”

As an Outkast fan you will also know that I didn’t make up the words in the acronym, you’ll understand the title, and you’ll also recognize the source of the quoted lyric:

I live by the beat like you live check-to-check,
If it don’t move your feet then I don’t eat,
so we like neck-to-neck
