Big Boi Wants Outkast Reunion
Big Boi is planning to reunite Outkast in 2014. The rapper has been speaking with bandmate Andre 3000 about getting back together to mark the 20th anniversary of their debut album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik - released in 1994.
In an interview with Power 106 radio in Los Angeles, he explained, "We been kind of discussing some things. Once we map it out, we'll make an announcement. But we'll see."
Although he'd love to celebrate the band's 20-year milestone, Big Boi is content with the group's success so far even if they don't move forward. "It's 20 years, man. We started out at 15, 16 years old. We made our first album when we were 17 years old. Twenty-five million records later, seven Grammys, I feel great," he explained.
The "Hey Ya" hitmakers released six albums in the span of 12 years. Their last record, 2006's Idlewild, reached number two on the US Billboard album charts and was certified platinum.
The duo both recently featured on Frank Ocean's "Pink Matter (Remix)," albeit separately. Big Boi recorded a new verse for the remix, while Andre 3000 lent his vocals to the original version, which appeared on Frank's debut album, Channel Orange.
