Hip-Hop Rumors: Is The Media Creating OutKast Beef?

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.

    nothing about this situation is ironic, except for your use of the word ironic, which is ironic because you are using it to describe something that it completely doesn’t mean.

  • Global_Mission

    The media (AllHipHop) has been drumming up beef between these 2 from the beginning. #SoutherPlayaListicadillacmuzik.

  • Reblogged this on The Music Business Revisionist.

    3K just might not be feeling the songs Big Boi is coming at him with. They need to go and get in the lab with Organized Noise for a couple months and find that chemistry again. I don’t think Andre is selfish, but I think that he does want his own legacy now.

    Bullshyt article with a bullshyt premise. The only “media” creating this beef seems to be so called Hip-Hop Sites. Andre has a video on Fuse praising the new album. I’ve read articles on Huffpost, Village Voice, and a few others with Andre praising Big Boi.

  • hoeyuno

    Ya’ll creating the beef. These two go way back. they aint gonna beef for shit.

  • BulldogCG

    why cant people understand two grown men doing their own thing. Cuz they boys they supposed to live together forever? My homey’s will be that forever, but shit we all over the map, cuz you gotta chase your own dreams, when we get up, its on and popping again, but that could be a year or five, them my ninjas, but we aint gay, lol, these dudes act like they best freind is supposed to be your wife, like they supposed to check in with each other, a man checks in with no man. That dont mean they gotta bump heads either though. I think this generation is just hyper emotional about everything.

    • Celz

      I remember on that Nick Cannon Show Wilin’ Out the White dude asked Big Boi how it feels to be partners with a man who wears a blouse.. Big Boi looked him up an down and said.. Man Dre a beat yo ass.. Shit was hilarious

  • Antoine Hart

    there is no beef..its websites like these that try to create beef amongst artists smh

  • Q.

    3K said he was pretty much done with rapping back in ’03 (The Love Below). Any verse you’ve heard him spit since then has been pretty much FREELANCE. LOL

    Would love to hear the dynamic duo drop another classic though.
