Andre 3000, Big Boi May Be Working On Solo Projects Before Group Album
After Queen Latifah cleared up rumors about a new OutKast album, it looks like the hip-hop duo will be cranking out solo efforts before a group LP.
The group’s DJ and producer, Mr. DJ, told Revolt that although both 3 Stacks and General Patton have been seen visiting Stankonia Studios in their native Atlanta, the group’s known workspace, they were not there working on a new OutKast album. The two have actually been putting in work on their own albums.
Mr. DJ adds that Andre may be dropping his long anticipated solo project this year, revealing that a lot of material has already been recorded for it. As for Big Boi, Mr. DJ says that he was just in the studio with him last week, laying down tracks to the follow-up for Boi's 2012 LP Dangerous Lies and Vicious Rumors.
While the hip-hop duo will be keeping busy this year with over 40 scheduled performances, Mr. DJ thinks that a collaborative work may follow soon after.
“I get the feeling that the energy and camaraderie from the tour will bring everything full circle,” he said. “We may make it back in for an album following that.”
Sir Lucius Leftfoot also recently caught up with Revolt, saying the 'Kast reunion was meant for the die-hards.
“Can’t wait to get on stage with my brother 3 Stacks and you know, kill ‘em,” he said. “It’s a long time to still be doing music at a high caliber, and having fun doing it.”
