Rumors have been circulating throughout the internet the past few months about a possible Outkast reunion. It has now been confirmed that Andre 3000 and Big Boi will in fact be reuniting at Coachella in April. Future’s older cousin and member of Organized Noize, Rico Wade, ended speculations in an interview with Stereogum. The confirmation comes just a month after a photo of Andre and Big Boi surfaced on the internet. Wade also revealed that Andre will be featured on fellow ATLien Future’s upcoming album.
Rico also happens to be Future’s older cousin, which is how Future ended up with “DUNGEON” tattooed on his right forearm and “FAMILY” on his left. “I put Future in the studio for the first time,” Rico explains, eager to shed light on his own under-recognized legacy. As we bide our time in the lobby, he affably spills the beans about unreleased Andre 3000 solo songs from a decade ago and his hopes to score Future a cameo during OutKast’s reunion sets at Coachella. Eventually he pulls out his iPhone and plays me a Future/Andre collaboration he produced called “Benz B*tch” that’s earmarked for Honest. It’s yet another side of Future and one rarely heard: brainy, libidinous space-age funk mined from Stankonia’s dankest caverns, an homage to his Dungeon Family roots. (Stereo Gum)
Big Boi posted an Instagram posts about a month ago, which sparked a fire of speculation from fans and Hip-Hop heads across the globe for the reunion of OutKast.
