Big Boi explained further by saying, “It’s just the OutKast 20th year anniversary. Just a way for us to celebrate with our fans, but there’s no album in the works.” The two will be playing a considerable concert tour this summer, so the news isn’t terribly surprising. When you’re making an appearance at every summer festival imaginable, you probably don’t have a lot of time to get an extended stretch of studio time scheduled. Still, fans had been holding out hope that their reunion would result in some new material from the long-dormant duo. As of now, that doesn’t appear to be the case.
However, there is one silver lining in the interview: Big Boi will be releasing a mixtape in the near future—inspired by Game of Thrones, the release can be expected in the next few weeks.
But for anyone who had been hoping to hear Sir Lucious LeftFoot and Three Stacks tear up a track together, know that you aren’t alone in your disappointment. Today, we are all sad Batman.
