Big Boi clarifies Gucci Mane situation and gives album update in new interview.
Gucci Mane turned heads in September when he casually mentioned that he had recorded a song for Outkast. An Andre 3000 rep quickly denied anything of that nature, but unanswered questions lingered. In a new interview with Creative Loafing Tampa, Big Boi clarified that Gucci had recorded a song for his upcoming solo album. "Me and Gucci have a record," he said. "When he said 'Outkast' he was just saying that I’m part of the group, so he was excited because the song was jamming like a motherfucker. I do have Gucci on this album, most definitely."
Big Boi said that the album was 80% complete and will reflect the current political climate to a degree. "It’s a time capsule," he explained. "It’s like a diary, so it won’t be preachy per se, but I drop some things here and there, and people might to look up or read more, but there is an awareness."
