Queen Latifah, who once managed OutKast, has said that the duo is set to work on a new album. According to a Huffington Post report, OutKast is also slated to be working on films, Latifah says.
This news comes following an announcement of more than 40 confirmed concert dates from the Georgia duo. Yesterday (January 13), OutKast announced that it is slated to go on a festival run, one that includes Coachella, which was originally thought to be the group’s only festival date.
The official announcement also came with a statement from Andre 3000 about the group’s return.
“Returning to the stage together is the most exciting way for us to thank everyone for their 20 years of supporting OutKast,” Andre said.
Big Boi also addressed the reunion with his own statement on the matter.
“I’m looking forward to rocking the stage with my Bro Ski and to all the fans, stank you smelly much,” Big said. “This is for y’all.”
