The Root: The South has something to say! In 1998, black Americans were knee-deep in a Clintonian three-strikes policy that was putting black men and women in prison for life for their third (even) nonviolent offenses. )/And one nigga done took his shirt off, talkin' 'bout now who else wanna fuck with Hollywood Cole?/It's just my interpretation of the situation," he testifies. Yeah, there was the Geto Boys, Scarface, UGK, Three Six Mafia, 8 Ball& MJG that were representing the South, but it was Outkast that really broke through as not just something regional.
