André 3000 Says Big Boi Remixes Are Not OutKast Collaborations
While Andre 3000 and Big Boi may be on good terms, it doesn’t seem as though we’ll be hearing any authentic OutKast material in the near future. André 3000, recently clarified that the pair of forthcoming tracks that will feature both himself and Big Boi are not in any way OutKast collaborations.
It’s important for me to be clear about the origins of my contributions to ‘Pink Matter’ and ‘Sorry.’ I was approached as a solo artist by both Frank Ocean & Tip. I discussed musical direction with each artist and completed my verses. It was after that when Big Boi’s name came up.
So despite the fact that Andre & Big Boi will be getting on the same track, again, it has nothing to do with the OutKast name. Three Stacks went on to say:
I never want to mislead our audience – I worried that some would think these were Outkast collaborations. These songs are not Outkast collaborations. I discussed this rationale with Big, Frank and T.I. and everyone agreed.
That is why I was surprised to read about these remixes. I understand that anyone can put out an unofficial remix to any song but I have an obligation to be honest with fans about what this is … and what it isn’t.
Is Outkast done for good? Let us know what you think in the comment section below!
