It’s official. Legendary hip-hop duo OutKast will be reuniting at this year’s Coachella Music Festival.
Last year, there were many reunion rumors swirling around the estranged duo, but when Big Boi instagrammed a picture of him and Andre hanging out, the rumors became reality.
In a recent interview with Stereo Gum, Organized Noize member Rico Wade confirmed Outkast’s reunion at Coachella.
“Rico explains, eager to shed light on his own under-recognized legacy. As we bide our time in the lobby, he affably spills the beans about unreleased Andre 3000 solo songs from a decade ago and his hopes to score Future a cameo during OutKast’s reunion sets at Coachella.”
Rico, who is Atlanta rapper Future’s cousin, also revealed a forthcoming Future and Andre 3000 collaboration for his Honest album titled “Benz Bitch.”
“Eventually he pulls out his iPhone and plays me a Future/Andre collaboration he produced called “Benz Bitch” that’s earmarked for Honest. It’s yet another side of Future and one rarely heard: brainy, libidinous space-age funk mined from Stankonia’s dankest caverns, an homage to his Dungeon Family roots.”
There still no official lineup for the acclaimed music festival, but is scheduled to kick off April 11 in Indio, California.
