Gavin Godfrey is a freelance writer and editor from Atlanta, who's written for CNN, Rolling Stone, Vice, The Fader and Complex. He co-wrote "Straight Outta Stankonia," the Creative Loafing cover story that was voted one of Atlanta Press Club's Top 10 Favorite Stories of the Past 50 Years. He believes OutKast is the greatest rap group of all time and it's not even close.

When OutKast released its fourth studio album Stankonia, the pioneering duo out of Atlanta, Ga., was not new to this, but they remained true to the hip-hop thing. Released on Halloween 2000, months after the initial Y2K scare that left people terrified of being throttled back into a period of darkness and technological paranoia, Stankonia took full advantage of the new millennium.
