Big Boi Speaks On Key & Peele’s Outkast Sketch: “Funny, But Far From The Truth”


Outkast’s Big Boi joined HuffPost Live and shed light on the ‘Key & Peele’ sketch on his relationship with former Outkast member Andre 3000.

Big Boi: “The sketch was funny. Actually, I sent it to ‘Dre and we laughed about it… But it’s like fantasy, it’s far from the truth. We’re definitely in close contact.  We’ve been hanging out all summer without our boys doing things like going paintballing and top golf and being dads. We took our kids to go see the movie ‘Dope’ and things like that.”

Big Boi: “So, I guess if we’re not in the public eye making music people just don’t know. We’re brothers before music. We were brothers before this and we’re going to be brothers for life.”

Big Boi also discussed how Andre 3000 helped him with his new Big Grams album.

Big Boi: “What was really good was for me to have the chance to play him the Big Grams album and him just like, ‘Hey man, play it again,’ and you know while we were mixing, he was like, ‘I think you may need to turn this up,’ and … just giving me his input on it, as brothers. He digged the project and he’s proud of me and I appreciate it.”
