Fellow citizens of Stankonia: we've got some sad news for you. In a new interview, Andre 3000, one half of the game-changing Atlanta hip-hop duo OutKast, says that there is no new music from him and Big Boi in the works.
"There's been a lot of talk on the Internet about an OutKast album and I have to say that as of now, there are no plans for another OutKast album," the rapper tells GQ. The duo's last proper album was 2006's "Idlewild," and while Big Boi released a solo album, "Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty," in 2010, Andre 3000 has spent the downtime lending guest verses to artists like Ke$ha, Drake and B.o.B.
"There's a lot of music on the horizon," the rapper continues. "I've been living off the excitement of new artists. I've been privileged to have these new artists kind of reach out and grab back and say, 'Hey, Andre, we want you on this song.' So I've been taking those calls and for the last two years, I've been doing collaborations. So these new artists have kind of been keeping me alive. I've just really been feeding off of that and this year I think I'm planning to do a solo project. I don't know when it will come out, but hopefully it'll come out this year. As far as OutKast, I really don't know if or when that will happen."
