In July of 2011, it was reported that Big Boi and Andre 3000 would reunite for the first Outkast album since 2006. The reunion album was confirmed by Boi Boi as he revealed the duo would reunite with L.A. Reid to release the album in 2012. A few months after Big Boi’s confirmation, Andre 3000 shut down all talk of a new album from the legendary Atl group. Following 3 Stacks’ dismissal of the album, rumors of beef between the two began to circulate, which Big Boi responded to and cleared the air while saying there is no issues between him and his former Outkast partner.
Since then, rumors of beef heated back up when Big Boi remixed Andre 3000 featured tracks “Pink Matter” from Frank Ocean and “Sorry” from T.I., and 3K went out of his by issuing a statement to announce that the Big Boi remixes were NOT official Outkast tracks as reported by some media outlets.
Once again, following 3 Stacks press release, beef rumors died down in large part to an announcement made by Big Boi, this past January, revealing that he an Andre 3000 were in talks to do something big for the 20th anniversary of Outkast.
Now, it looks like Big Boi’s announcement of something special for the 20th anniversary of Outkast has come to fruition as the duo have announced that they will hit the road in 2014 for a reunion tour.
As reported by Revolt News, after a 7-year hiatus, Outkast will come back together in 2014 for a reunion tour.
To add, according to another report, via Billboard, the Outkast reunion tour will kick off in April at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California, and will be followed by more dates that have yet to be announced.
