R.I.P. Outkast

Andre 3000 made some headlines after an interview with Complex where he said he would be “totally fine” with never teaming up with his Outkast counterpart, Big Boi, for a new album. Although the Atlanta duo hasn’t released a new, well, anything in over 10 years, their reunion tour in 2014 gave the slightest glimmer of hope that they might be heading back into the studio together. That tour was unstoppable, headlining every festival from the big dogs Coachella and Lollapalooza to the new defunct Tampa festival Big Guava. 3 Stacks says that it’s not just Outkast that he’s tired of, but rather the “hustle and bustle” of the rap world all together. While ruling out a solo album and a new project from Outkast, he did say he prefers to work with others on smaller collaborations, mentioning his past collabs with Frank Ocean and Travis Scott. He also hinted at a possible feature with “exciting” Atlanta rapper Young Thug. While it seems like there might be some excitement in the future when it comes to the Atlanta legend, it also appears that the good days may be numbered, “At this stage, I’m really more focused on what I’m going to be doing 10 years from now. And I hope to God it won’t be rapping.” Feel free to check out the whole interview here, and browse my definitive Outkast playlist below, just for old times’ sake.
