Andre 3000 Puts An End to Outkast Reunion Rumors

(AllHipHop News) Rumors of an impending Outkast reunion have gotten louder this past week, when on January 12th, Frank Ocean released a remixed single entitled “Pink Matter” featuring guest verses from Andre 3000 and Big Boi. Fans of the former duo quickly became excited at the prospect of seeing – and hearing – the two of them back together.

But those hopes were dashed with a single statement from Andre 3000, who has always been more than a little reluctant at the thought of getting back together with his old partner in rhyme.

“I never want to mislead our audience – I worried that some would think these were Outkast collaborations,” he told Spin in response to the songs release. “These songs are not Outkast collaborations.”

The message also states that Big Boi’s verse was an after thought and Dre was completely , “surprised to read about these remixes.”

For his part, Big Boi has so far kept quite on the situation, choosing instead to use his Twitter account to promote his performance, alongside Indie pop duo, Phantogram, on the ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live Show’ last night.

    Damn I’m pissed damn what happened

  • Tre C

    i’ve been telling people for years, once Dre left for acting, Outkast was never coming back.

  • TheBigCheeFa

    it’s deeper than we know to why andre stacks dont want to be associated with outkast anymore.

    • AfricanSoul

      My sentiments exactly. Although his tweet about him being surprised about the remix came off a bit assholeish…not sure if he intended it to.

    • Frank

      I’m tired of hearing this sad shit. Let that shit be and stop asking them about it. They don’t want to talk. Just tell me if and when they cool again.

  • SpaceAge2012

    Well,I guess Big Boi better work on puttin Purple Ribbon back together cus Dre has obviously gone Hollywood.

  • What’s the dam problem though?? I want to know why 3000 is so adamant about there not being an Outkast reunion.

  • johnblacksad

    keep quite! no dis…

  • YaheardSyndicate

    its all game, Outkast probably has an album done. As soon as you dont expect it, it will drop.

  • Mike Swiff

    Who cares…Andre do what you do!!! Now didn’t Big (lil) Boi put a CD out like a couple of months…smh Wow Big (lil) Boi you have no audience let it go yo! (Please)

    • AfricanSoul

      Boi’s album is dope. He has proved he can stand on his own.

    • anemia716

      Big Bio’s last album and most recent were dope as hell. stop choosing sides in a matter that NONE of us have any real insight.

  • amccombs

    I wish 3 stacks would just say he not doing outkast anymore and stop with all the lies. He says he doesnt want to do music, but he’s making songs with Rick Ross, TI, Frank Ocean and others, but you can’t even do a verse for Big Boi??? Plus he acts like he pissed cuz Big Boi in on the remix too. Andre, be a MAN and just say you dont want to do songs with big boi anymore. As a fan, I’m tired of your lame excuses about outkast and just wish you would say once and for all what your plans are for Outkast. You lie just like Dr Dre does about DETOX. Neither one is coming out soon, but your to scared to say it.

    • Celz

      I agree with you but on Detox Dre is/ was trying to drop it.. The thing is Dre isn’t Ross.. If the album is projected to go Gold he’s not going to drop it.. He’s been testing the water for years and the music is doing good enough in his opinion..

  • bigdoe6

    LaFace owns the Outkast brand. This is deeper than rap. Big Boi wants to do another album for the fans, Andre is caught up in the politics. Still my favorite rap group though.

  • He acting like he’s pissed at Big Boi remixing it. WTF? No hope for the Outkast reunion now

  • Mike9130

    The title and way the article is written is just as confusing misleading as anything else.

  • Was hoping they reunite they make classic albums

  • BernardPerez

    Even if they do end up doing anything together its gonna be all half assed on stacks side because he making hollywood money. Big boi is gonna be all caught up wit whats stacks is rapping bout and the subliminal jabs in their own music.

  • TheBigCheeFa

    andre 3 stacks think he’s Jimmy Hendrix now and dont want to do another outkast album
