Outkast Set for 20-Year Reunion Tour as Big Boi Drops Sneak Peak of Solo Album
Are you fan of Outkast? What about the Blue Oyster Cult? While these two might seem like an unlikely duo for rock n’ roll and hip hop heads alike, the rhyme slinging member Big Boi is back featuring samples from the cult rock classic and the likes of Big K.R.I.T. and UGK that may turn you into a “GossipZilla.” The album also features some pretty trippy visualizations and is “on fire” across the interweb.

Big Boi and Andre3000 of Outkast are reportedly “chilling again” and potentially going to work on a new album according to Queen Latifah. The duo is also ready to set out on a 20-year reunion tour that also includes headliners at some of the biggest entertainment events of the year like the Coachella Music Festival and New York’s Governors Ball.
“It’s truly an honor to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose,” said Big Boi. “Don’t just think outside the box, know that there is no box. I’m looking forward to rocking the stage with my Bro Ski and to all the fans – stank you smelly much, this is for y’all!”
Andre 3000 added:
And imagine, all we wanted to do was rap! I am thankful to have been a part of a group that allowed me to explore anything that came to mind and have fun doing it. Returning to the stage together is the most exciting way for us to thank everyone for their 20 years of supporting Outkast.
Are you excited to see Outkast back together soon?
