Outkast Makes Good In London
Outkast returned to London last night (June 4) to make up a series of February shows postponed after rapper Big Boi's girlfriend gave birth to a son back in the U.S. The concert, promoted by Levi's EnOutkast returned to London last night (June 4) to make up a series of February shows postponed after rapper Big Boi's girlfriend gave birth to a son back in the U.S. The concert, promoted by Levi's Engineered Music and held at East London's newly opened Ocean venue, was Webcast by MSN.
Playing to approximately 1,000 media representatives and contest winners, the group -- decked out in custom-made denim outfits -- enthralled with performances of the recent hits "Ms. Jackson" and "So Fresh, So Clean," the latter of which debuted at No. 16 in the U.K. last weekend. The show also allowed a few leading lights of the British hip-hop scene to receive much needed exposure. This included DJ Skitz, who performed his set with several rappers including Rodney P, Estelle, Wildflower, and Tempa.
Sadly, the hottest hip-hop show to hit London in some time found many disgruntled people left outside on the curb, including members of DJ Piped Piper & the Masters Of Ceremonies, whose single "Do You Really Like It" hit No. 1 in the U.K. late last month.
Outkast returns to play London's Astoria on June 20 and the Brixton Academy the following day. As previously reported, the group will be back in the U.S. and on the bill for the entirety of Moby's inaugural Area: One tour, which kicks off July 11 in Outkast's Atlanta hometown.
