Atlanta pays tribute to the legendary rap duo OutKast with a huge mural | CNN

(CNN) – The South has something to say — or show, rather.

The mural, painted by an artist who goes by JEKS, presents André “André 3000” Benjamin and Antwan “Big Boi” Patton on a sweeping wall in Atlanta’s Little Five Points neighborhood.

In black and white, a shirtless André gives you a watchful side-eye while he presses his back to Big Boi’s shoulder. Big Boi stares viewers down intently, dripping with sparkling jewelry and holding a smoking… uh… we’ll let you decide what he’s smoking.
