    I feel like you cats are trolling me now.

    Damn near every relatively mainstream act in any genre has Wikis for their singles.

    In the very first paragraph of the Wiki article it says the song wasn't a big commercial success, and it became popular during the Iraqi War. Which is what I said.

    They were playing it on rock stations, for Christ sake. Due to the war in Iraq. That doesn't mean those same people went out and copped the album, or even knew who Outkast was.

    If certain rappers are not busting caps at other blacks or having sex with overweight black women they call thicc or doing drugs and alcohol then certain people on this site consider them sellouts.

    Bombs over Baghdad and ms Jackson weren’t the beginning of crossing over

    But just white folk, even though I can see how they would think that. But people imo big up Dre 3000 but forget about big boi. It’s not like either was better in OutKast, similar to mob deep they complimented themselves on those songs

    I’ll say this big boy is a more typical southern rapper imo. Also Andre 3999 at least the way a lot of people know him know is for dressing and acting eccentric, along with being a bohemian black

    Dre is a humble dude that keeps to himself. You'd think he'd have a much bigger head considering how people view him. Can't see why a black man would hate on that brother

    I never messed with him for real I always liked big boi more and I think he’s fat overrated for the props he gets based on the limited amount of content he’s released.

    white people like him because he fits one of the images of brothers they like to be around. I bet they like ASAP rocky also.

    Kinda confused. Is this a question or a statement?

    "Ms. Jackson" was their first song that crossed over. It went #1.

    "BOB" never crossed over in real time. Never even charted. 3 years after it came out some dumb ass tennis player played it during a match to "support the troops" because she thought the song was pro-Iraqi War.

    After that it started getting picked up by rock stations and all sorts of goofy shyt, as a pro-war anthem. Which is probably why people are misremembering it as some kinda mainstream hit when it came out.
