OutKast are gearing up for big things this spring and summer, as they take themselves on the road for over 40 different festivals tour dates, not to mention the possibility that they'll be starting a new album (!).
Andre 3000 was cast as Jimi Hendrix in the upcoming biopic, Jimi: All Is By My Side some time ago, and the film is finally ready to make its debut on U.S. soil. The film will screen at this year's SXSW festival, which runs March 3-15 in Austin Texas.
The OutKast rumors are bountiful, and they aren't done just yet. It's quite possible we'll get a retraction of this tomorrow, but take it for what's it worth. Apparently the ATLiens are to release solo albums prior to releasing a reunion LP.
We were waiting on some information like this. Although it's not very official, and it's not from the mouths of Big Boi and Andre 3000 themselves, Queen Latifah suggests that OutKast are working on a new album in a recent interview with Horward Stern.
The good news concerning OutKast just keeps on coming today. Following the official announcement from Coachella that the duo would be headlining the festival, another concert with the ATL legends has been announced.
The OutKast news keeps getting better and better. Last week we received official news that the duo would headline the stage at Coachella 2014, followed up by the news that they'd also be performing at the annual Governors Ball in NYC.
Good news, everyone! Shortly after receiving confirmation that Outkast would be reuniting, not only for a Coachella 2014 show, but for an actual tour, the legendary duo have been spotted together-- although no word on if it was to work on music.
It's hard to believe Outkast has been on hiatus since 2007. Ever since putting the project on hold, fans have anticipated a reunion for the duo, but so far there's been no sign of it (or a 3 Stacks solo album for that matter).
Atlanta, Georgia. The city bursting with waffle houses and strip clubs also happens to be one of today’s hip-hop capitals. Trap music has skyrocketed over the past couple years, ATL being its home. Twenty years ago, however, there was a much different picture in the A.
In a recent interview with RapFix Live, Goodie Mob/Gnarls Barkley's Cee Lo Green opened up about Andre 3000's lengthy hiatus from music. The two have been friends since they were kids, and the recent death of the latter's mother and Cee Lo's grandmother has brought them closer together.
More than any other artists or group (excepting Scarface) Outkast is responsible for the rise of southern rap. They were among the first acts to gain recognition from the region and remain one of the most commercially and critically successful rap groups to date.
