Speakerboxxx/The Love Below is a double album by the hip hop group OutKast, released on September 23, 2003 on LaFace Records. The release includes a solo album from both of the group's members. Speakerboxxx has Big Boi performing tracks more representative of the older OutKast style, while The Love Below, the solo project of André 3000, is performed in a more funk-based style. André primarily sings rather than rapping on The Love Below, marking a significant departure from his past work by OutKast. Speakerboxxx/The Love Below won Album of the Year and Best Rap Album at the Grammy Awards of 2004.
