Outkast Caroline - the villain of Andre 3000's Outkast Roses
In Outkast Roses, the mention of Outkast Caroline refers to a girl that on the outside is beautiful but has a very arrogant personality. It�s a larger reference to individuals that rely on their outside appearances as an excuse to act holier than the next person. So while Caroline in Outkast Roses is referring to a girl who thinks she is perfect:"I know you like to think your shit don't stank."
Caroline should realize that she is far from in it:"See that roses really smell like boo-boo"
Judging from the verse from Big Boy, Gold digger seems more correct. Big Boi tells of knowing the girl only wants guys for their money and then leaves them when they can't pay for all her things.
A lot of use may know a Caroline in our lives, or may even be one ourselves without realizing it. I think that�s what makes this catchy tune and reference so easy to relate to. Some may argue that the lyrics to Outkast roses are random and superficial, but in reality they are deep and insightful. Take a few listens and understand the entire context of the scenario Andre 3000 and Big Boy paint.
