"Ascending"

With its meditative acoustic guitar and vocal coos courtesy of Little Dragon's amazingly talented Yukimi Nagano, who shows up all over the album, the album's brief intro recalls the beautiful plaintiveness of the opener of Outkast's Aquemini, "Hold On, Be Strong." Big Boi doesn't shy away from the throwback vibe either: "One half of the mind of Outkast, one whole of me," he says, introducing himself.
