Over the past year, there has been a lot of talk of an Outkast reunion album as Big Boi said the album was a go, but Andre 3000 shut down all talk of a potential Outkast album. Due to the disagreement on recording the album, there has been much speculation of tension between the duo. Now, although there is no talk of beef between the two, Big Boi speaks on an apology that 3 Stacks made to him on the track “Sorry” that was recorded for T.I.’s Trouble Man album, and also answers the question if Outkast will ever get back together.
During a recent interview with Cipha Sounds, Rosenberg and K Foxx on Hot 97 while out on his promo run for his upcoming album, Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors, Big Boi said he had a chance to hear Andre 3000’s verse on the new T.I. album, and 3000 apologized to him as he told Big Boi he’s sorry for “being awkward at our shows and fucking up the tour.”
Big Boi says an apology really wasn’t needed, as he explains:
I don’t really get it. Awkward, I don’t get it. He’s apologizing for being awkward at shows? Apologize for turning down a million dollars a night.
He didn’t want to perform no more, but that’s understandable. I just kept on pushing. Kept on going. To me, the whole thing about the performance thing is, I know fans want to see us do the songs together. But I never stopped touring. I’m on my second solo record.
As the interview continued, the Outkast rapper spoke on the reunion album:
It’s whatever man. If Dre’s ready to do it and I’m not on tour all around the world, let’s go, for sure.
Big Boi’s forthcoming solo album, Vicious Lies, & Dangerous Rumors is slated for a December 11th release.
