AllHipHop Staff

Fans have been waiting patiently for years for a new Outkast album.

According to Big Boi, the long-delayed project has finally started to be work on.

In an exclusive interview with AllHipHop.com, Big Boi confirmed that one of the acclaimed duo’s latest efforts will be a part of his forthcoming solo album.

“I got the album coming out in a few months, Sir Lucious Leftfoot: Son of Chico Dusty,” Big Boi explained to AllHipHop.com. “The new single will be a song called ‘Looking for You’ featuring Andre 3000 and produced by Erik Sermon the Green-Eyed Bandit.”

Regarding their 7th studio album, Big Boi maintained that the plan is still to drop the LP following both their solo efforts.

Also, the Atlanta emcee remained tight-lipped on giving too much information on the still developing direction of the project.

“For all you Outkast lovers the album is coming. I’m tired of talking about it and know y’all are tired of hearing me talk about it. But its coming and the album is fire!” Big Boi exclaimed. “The Kast album is top secret but Organized Noise had done the first couple of beats off there. We got Dre working on his solo so we’re going to help him tighten that up. The Kast album is coming, then we got the Goodie Mob album coming, and then the Ceelo-Goodie album so it’s Dungeon Family for life!”

Outkast’s last album was the ambitious 2003 double album Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, which spanned the hits

“The Way You Move” and “Hey Ya!” on its way to selling over 10 million copies.

Big Boi is currently performing as part of the nationwide Rock the Bells Tour.

At press time, there is no tentative release date or title for the new Outkast album.
