Outkast's own Big Boi recently spoke about music mogul L.A. Reid becoming the Epic Records chairman and how he hopes the executive's promotion will help reunite him with Andre 3000. Big Boi says he hopes to get Andre 3000 on his upcoming "Daddy Fat Sax" sophomore solo album.
"I think it's very much possible because we have L.A. Reid in our corner now, and he was the first to sign Outkast," Big Boi said, referring to the record executive's recent jump from chairman of Island Def Jam Music Group to Epic Records. If all goes well, that move should undo the label roadblocks (Big Boi has a solo deal with Def Jam, while Outkast is signed to Jive) that kept the pair's "Lookin' for Ya" collaboration off of Big Boi's 2010 solo debut, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty.
