Editors' Notes Pop music is a slightly stranger animal thanks to Outkast, whose off-kilter insouciance has sparked artists from nearly every genre. This playlist homes in on the Atlanta duo's hip-hop heirs, taking in conflicted crooner Kid Cudi, whose "Day ‘n' Nite” builds off Outkast's deft flows and experimental beats, and Lil Wayne, a self-described alien in the vein of André's 3000's “real down-to-Mars girls.”
