Outkast will headline this year's LouFest.
Outkast has made something of an art form out of cleverly describing its own level of "cool." Though the Atlanta duo is far from the first rap group to do so, Big Boi and Andre 3000 have certainly made a game out of it, employing all manner of wordplay in their explanations of the matter. "Cooler than a polar bear's toenails," from 1996's ATLiens, is likely the most well-known example.

Below, you will find a list of every single thing the members of Outkast have lyrically asserted themselves to be cooler than, along with carefully thought-out, scientific explanations. Let's dig in.

Outkast will headline this year's LouFest.

Oh, St. Louis, our collective wish just came true -- Outkast will headline LouFest 2014, scheduled for September 6 and 7 in Forest Park!

Did you fully take that in? OUTKAST! Not only will the 'Kast put on a memorable show, but its inclusion also proves that we're obviously psychic (evidence here and here), and you readers obviously are outstanding at pestering the C3 Presents folks into doing what you want. High-fives, everybody!

But the LouFest lineup excitement doesn't end there: Outkast will share a bill with Arctic Monkeys, Cake, Grouplove and Matt & Kim, among others. Here's the full lineup for LouFest 2014:

Attention LouFest Organizers: Please Get OutKast, Thanks

News broke just yesterday that Big Boi and Andre 3000, best known for their work as the dynamic Atlanta hip-hop duo OutKast, will be doing a festival tour this year. The outing is said to consist of more than 40 dates this spring/summer, starting in mid-April at Indio, California's esteemed Coachella music festival -- that reunion performance, which had been rumored since late 2013, was officially announced with the fest's lineup last week. Yesterday's news means the rest of us sad saps won't have to pay absurd amounts of money for scalped tickets (Coachella is already sold out) just to catch the 'Kast back in action again.

And that's why I'm looking at you, LouFest.

Tech Supreme and I had a late night session Wednesday evening, which isn't typically uncommon when we're in the studio working. We started at 10 p.m. with the simple process of playing a bunch of tracks and trying to figure out where we wanted to go with our creative energies. Lately we've been collaborating a lot with a very talented singer we met on tour this year by the name of Sarah Michelle. She has a unique voice and very specific style of her own. You'll definitely hear more about her in the future when we start releasing these new records.
