"Ghetto Musick" single, B-sided with "She Lives in My Lap"
"Ghetto Musick" / "Prototype" is the fourth and final single to be released from hip-hop duo OutKast's fifth studio album, Speakerboxxx/The Love Below (2003). "Ghetto Musick" (also written as one word, "Ghettomusick") can be found on Disc 1 (Speakerboxxx) and "Prototype" can be found on Disc 2 (The Love Below.) GhettoMusick was featured on the soundtrack for the video game NBA Live 2004.
"Ghetto Musick" is found on Big Boi's disc Speakerboxxx. The song was released in the UK as the first single from the album. It peaked at number 55 on the UK Singles Chart. It was later released elsewhere as a double A-side single with "Prototype". The song samples vocals from Patti LaBelle's "Love, Need and Want You". LaBelle also appears in the video lip syncing to her vocals. "Prototype" is found on André 3000's disc The Love Below, and was released as a double A-side single with "Ghetto Musick". It did not receive as much promotion as "Ghetto Musick", only being promoted with its double A-side single release and its music video.
The music video for "Ghetto Musick" featured Big Boi during his daily routine as a "Delivery Boi" for Fed Up, a deliberate reference to FedEx. He eats lunch at Patti LaBelle's house, delivers packages to a sorority house—a group of gang members he evades a fight with and an attractive female who tries to sleep with him before her husband arrives with a bat. It's mostly comedic and meant to reflect a Southern environment, including fictional exaggerations of Southern culture such as a "Fish and Grits" restaurant. The video for "Prototype" has a white-haired Andre 3000, who, after landing on Earth with other interstellar travelers, falls in love with a woman played by model and actress Michelle Van Der Water in an idyllic rural area.
