Outkast and Goodie Mob have always been close associates, sharing commonality as part of the Dungeon Family and recording over the years. But fans may not know that Cee Lo Green was originally supposed to be part of Outkast.

During an interview with ThisIs50.com, Big Boi spoke on how “The Voice” judge would always be hanging around but that he and Andre 3000 were much tighter. “Yeah, kinda sorta. He was hanging out with us. We go way back, so kinda. For a brief minute,” he said. “Me and Dre was just together more. We would see Cee Lo sometimes but not all the time like that. Me and Dre was together day in, day out.”

Big Boi is set to release his new album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors tomorrow. The set features appearances from Little Dragon, A$AP Rocky and more.
