Big Boi & Andre 3000 Put Their Schedules On Hold, Big Reunion Plans Announced
Diehard fans hoping to see OutKast’s Big Boi and Andre 3000 reunite at least one more time will have their wishes come true as reports claim the Atlanta duo will hook back up next year.
According to reports, the iconic rappers are slated to reunite ten years following their debut album’s release.
“After years of speculation, Revolt can report that OutKast will be reuniting and going on tour in 2014. OutKast’s Andre 3000 and Big Boi had been on hiatus since 2007 after releasing 2006′s Idlewild. Since relesaing Idlewild, Andre 3K has been busy with numerous films including the Great Gatsby with Leonardo DiCaprio. 2014 marks the 20th anniversary since their debut album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik. Perfect timing for a reunion. You best believe we’re going to have much more on the OutKast reunion right here and over on our website Revolt.TV.” (Revolt TV)
Earlier this year, “King of the South” T.I. said he believed the reason we had yet to see an OutKast reunion was due to the artists’ own fear and concerns.
“From me speaking to Dre man I heard him being open to it, I really did. I think his concern is do the kids right now who are young and buying music care enough about an Outkast album for it to make a difference. Which is the same concern that I hear from other people that we all love and respect in this industry like Dr. Dre. I was working with Doc on “Detox” and that was his same concern. Of course we’re looking at them like we have such huge admiration for them for what they’ve done in the past, but they are looking at themselves kind of like ‘What do I mean to the young kid of today that is going out there to buy music?’ That’s what the struggle is.” (The Urban Daily)
