The news keeps getting better and better regarding OutKast’s reunion this year. Not only are they headlining the Coachella Music Festival and Governors Ball, they have also lined up over 40 festival dates for 2014.
Who is OutKast? Not much of a question for any real rap fan that hasn't lived under a rock the past 20 years. But sadly, not everyone knows the greatness of Andre 3000 and Big Boi. A new Tumblr page aims to spotlight those people ignorant of the legendary hip-hop duo.
On Sept., 23, 2003, OutKast released their classic hip-hop double album, 'Speakerboxx/The Love Below.' This effort was a landmark achievement for the Atlanta duo and cemented them as one of the best rap duos of all-time.
What message do we have for fans hoping for an Outkast reunion album in the near future? Don’t hold your breath. Andre 3000 seems to be focusing on non-music ventures while Big Boi continues to do his solo thing. The track listing for his upcoming solo album, “Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors,” didn’t list any Andre collaborations. According to Big Boi, the ball was in 3000’s court.
OutKast rapper Big Boi is 90 percent done with his second solo LP ‘Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors.’ The collection, which has a tentative Nov. 21 release date, boasts collaborations with Kid Cudi, Sleepy Brown, T.I., A$AP Rocky and Boi’s favorite singer Kate Bush.
