UPDATE : André 3000 and Big Boi were together in Atlanta for Thanksgiving this past week as seen on Big Boi’s instagram. Just coincidence? Or does this solidify speculation of a 2014 reunion?
Outkast, one of the most iconic hip-hop duos of all time, are in serious talks to reunite and potentially headline Coachella in 2014. Big Boi and Andre 3000 haven’t performed together in over seven years, but officials have tipped off Billboard to some plans stirring up for next year including Coachella and some other unspecified dates.
“One source tells Billboard that there have definitely been “some conversations” about Outkast reuniting, while another says it is “all systems go” for Big Boi and André 3000 to end their hiatus next year.”
This is definitely a green flag that the duo is coming back and hitting the road. When a group of this size plays a reunion at Coachella, it is typically followed by headlining a handful of the other influential music festivals in the country like Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits. Anyone else as excited as me?
Frank Ocean – Pink Matter (Remix) (ft. Big Boi & Andre 3000) : First Track With Both Members of Outkast in YearsPosted in Chill by nick | Tags: Andre 3000, Big Boi, Frank Ocean, Hip-Hop, Outkast, Rap, Remix
Apparently Frank Ocean is so damn good, that he actually reunited both Big Boi and Andre 3000 of Outkast on his track Pink Matter. But when it got released on his album, channel Orange, complications arose and only Andre 3000‘s verse saw the light of day. Well now we get the remix, which is actually the true version feauring Big Boi‘s verse. He adds a nice fresh flowful edge with consistent solid lines adding just the right twist to a great track. If this is the sign of these three working together on some original material, the world might just loose it. Do you like this version better then the previously released one? Sit back and enjoy!
