Is Outkast Over?
Big Boi recently thrilled Outkast fans when he teased plans for a new album – but now it seems the uber successful hip hop duo may NEVER reunite.
Just last year, the rapper told MTV Australia of a follow-up to the group’s 2006 record
“That’s very top secret, under raps. I can’t discuss it at all... but know that it’s coming.”
However, according to his music partner André 3000, a comeback for the Grammy Award winning pair is highly unlikely…
“I have to say that as of now, there are no plans for another OutKast album,”
he told GQ Magazine.
Instead, the singer-songwriter has been busy focusing on collaborations with other chart-topping artists.
“I’ve been privileged to have these new artists kind of reach out and grab back and say, ‘Hey, Andre, we want you on this song’. So I’ve been taking those calls and, for the last two years, I’ve been doing collaborations.”
And, just like his Outkast bandmate Big Boi, who’s dropped two solo albums, the music mogul is also keen to branch out alone.
“I’m planning to do a solo project,”
“ I don’t know when it will come out, but hopefully it’ll come out this year.”
