Gavin Godfrey is a freelance writer and editor from Atlanta, who's written for CNN, Rolling Stone, Vice, The Fader and Complex. He co-wrote "Straight Outta Stankonia," the Creative Loafing cover story that was voted one of Atlanta Press Club's Top 10 Favorite Stories of the Past 50 Years. He believes OutKast is the greatest rap group of all time and it's not even close.
The duo, formally known as Mandolin Orange, has been on the road supporting a new self-titled record. They roll into the Durham Performing Arts Center on Friday and Saturday night for homecoming shows.
