Outkast Reuniting for Collaborations
Both members of OutKast have been doing their own projects for the past six years, and earlier in 2012, Andre 3000 shot down the possibility of the duo releasing a follow-up to 2006’s Idlewild. But that doesn’t mean the two, the other half being Big Boi, won’t get back together to collaborate on another artist’s song. According to recent statements made by Big Boi on Twitter, OutKast are getting back together to collaborate with T.I. and Frank Ocean.
About their plans, Big Boi, who released his second solo album in December 2012, described their collaborations as: "an OutKast feature on a project that's not mine or his is not what we wanted to do right now."
Specifically, he went onto say, they are: "Dropping a verse on this Frank Ocean 'Pink Matter' #vladr."
Aside from “Pink Matter,” the other track the duo appears on is T.I.’s “Sorry.”
Nevertheless, the news is somewhat of a surprise. Over the summer in 2012, Big Boi, in discussing his sophomore album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, stated Outkast wouldn’t even appear reunited for collaborations – and, in fact, had turned down a couple of projects simply for that fact.
Andre 3000, in an interview with GQ from February 2012, stated that not only will OutKast not do another album together, but his creative energy has strictly been coming from collaborations with other artists.
