You know, everybody wants another OutKast album. And we just cannot fully understand why it has not come to fruition yet. Other than issues with the label, I don’t know why they would work something out. Anyway, Big Boi has kept it moving. This time around, he didn’t have any Andre 3000 on his album at all, not even a leak record. The Village Voice asked him why and he quipped something that was quickly perceived as a diss to his longtime rap partner.
“He could’ve been on any song he wanted to. I gave the motherf**ker about five songs, but I guess he was just too busy. He said he had to do some Gillette s**t. No for real. He said he had some contractual obligations.”
After the fact, he said he was just kidding and it was a sarcastic remark. “The Gillete Statement was me being Sarcastic, man y’all slow as hell, No Beef between me and Stacks. No More Outkast ?’s will be answered,” he said on Twitter. But, since then the rumors of beef linger. Why? Because Three Stacks has been on a lot of other people’s projects (OPP). So, the time part makes little sense. Clearly, the Gillette part does as well. I don’t know but I get the impression that Big Boi is tired of people fawning over A3K. Just my opinion. I know I would. Big Boi is dope on his own. Andre 3000 has said on record that he doesn’t even know when he will release anymore music.
Ironically, Big Boi drops Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors on December 1. There’s a lot of irony in that album title.
