Outkast (typeset as OutKast) is an American hip hop duo based out of East Point, Georgia, a city south of Atlanta, Georgia. They were orginally known as The OKB (The OutKast Brothers) but later changed their name to Outkast. Their original musical style was a mixture of Dirty South and G-Funk; since then, funk, soul, pop, electronic music, rock, spoken word poetry, jazz, and blues elements have been added to the group's musical palette.
