Big Boi Speaks On Outkast’s First Show At Coachella

Posted By on April 18, 2014

Atlanta rapper Big Boi recently spoke on linking back up with longtime partner Andre 3000 for their highly publicized Outkast reunion at Coachella , and what fans can expect from them during part two of the festival series.

According to Big Boi, a lot of friends and family helped make their reunion a big deal for them.

 “Big Boi didn’t have much to say about the Outkast reunion, which has only just gotten underway. For him, getting back onstage with Andre 3000 to play the rap duo’s songs is about keeping an open mind. “It’s been good,” Big Boi said. “It’s been fun. It’s been one date so far. A lot of family and friends came out. We just jumped into the deep end of the pool like, ‘Let’s do it!’ Friday is round two and we gotta crank it back up again.” (The Hollywood Reporter)

 Big Boi also gave a little insight on what fans can expect from this weekends performance and why they didn’t perform some of their big hits earlier this week.

 “The duo may vary their setlist slightly from last Friday, but seem eager to continue revisiting both Outkast songs and solo material during these upcoming shows. “It might be slightly different,” Big Boi says of this Friday’s performance. “What happened was our set got cut by like five songs. We had to cut ‘Player’s Ball’ and ‘Chronomentrophobia’ because of the time constraints. But there’s probably a couple songs [fans] didn’t hear then they’re gonna hear this time.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
