After a three year feud [click to read] of not speaking, subliminal and overt insults and an alleged

physical confrontation, Outkast‘s Big Boi and his former artist Killer Mike have reconciled. Atlanta’s Maurice

G. Garland, reported on the meeting firsthand [click to read]. It seems both artists

were encouraged to resolve the simmering conflict at the urging of close family members and

a nasty bout of Atlanta weather.

“A bad storm hit Atlanta and knocked the power out over a large portion of the city,

including the studio where Mike planned to record [another ‘Sunday Morning Massacre’],” writes

Garland. Big Boi‘s uncle Darnell and Bear were encouraging Big to peace things up once and

for all.” Big‘s son Cross provided the additional prodding to bring Killer Mike and his father together after both men initially attempted to hide their strained relationship from their children. Later, both men spoke on the phone to resolve all of their underlying issues, and later met at an event yesterday, where the following photo was taken.
