Over the past year, there have been a lot of reports about an Outkast reunion album. The reunion album was even confirmed by Big Boi, but denied by Andre 3000. Due to 3 Stacks denial, it has led up to much speculation about tension between the duo. Now, as Big Boi gears up to release his solo album, Vicious Lies, And Dangerous Rumors, and Andre 3000 isn’t featured on the album, it led to even more assumptions of beef between the two.
All the speculation of tension between the Atliens has Big Boi fed up as he reassures everyone that there is no friction between him and his and his partner in rhyme, and he even stated that he is done answering all questions about Outkast.
A question asked during a recent interview with The Village Voice led up to up to him being done yielding questions about Outkast as Boi Boi was asked how come Dre isn’t featured on his upcoming album.
He replied sarcastically:
He could’ve been on any song he wanted to. I gave the motherfucker about five songs, but I guess he was just too busy. He said he had to do some Gillette shit.
Big Boi’s comments about Dre being tied up doing Gillette commercials was an obvious joke, but multiple media outlets took him serious, and reported it as a headline story, which caused him to be fed up with all the questions about beef between him and 3000.
When the Atlanta rapper seen the reports, he took to his Twitter page and said he’s done answering questions about Outkast.
In other Outkast news: Andre 3000 addressed his feature on T.I.’s album, and pretty much shares the same sentiment as Big Boi that there is no beef between the two as he says that he’s proud of his Outkast partner.
In a recent interview with Fuse, 3 Stacks spoke on his verse on T.I.’s “Sorry.”
T.I. and I have been trying to do a song for a long, long time. It was always for me, it’s about the actual song or the project. I’m never going to do something just to do it. I went to the studio and checked out some music and as soon as that song came on and his lyrics came on, it kind of hit home for me. It was a song I wanted to be part of.”
As the interview continued, Dre spoke on Big Boi’s Vicious Lies, And Dangerous Rumors:
Since he started working on it, he’d come by and play songs every couple weeks or whatever. He finally wrapped it up. He’s actually here in New York promoting it right now and I think it comes out next month, so I’m definitely proud of that dude because we started as two people. I know how hard it is to write your own raps for a whole album.
