Andre 3000 Speaks On Outkast Reunion
Andre 3000 has spoken out, clarifying his stance on a possible Outkast reunion. After the Frank Ocean remix of 'Pink Matter' surfaced featuring 3000's other half Big Boi, fans were hopeful of a possible OutKast reunion. Now with Big Boi tweeting that he will collaborate with 3 Stacks again on a track featuring T.I., Andre wanted to address the tracks with his fellow group member…
"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."
He added: "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."
It's been six long years since Outkast released their last album, and after reading Andre's statement it doesn't look like another one will be coming any time soon.
