Sorry Ms. Jackson — this is probably not for real.
Before the rumor mills start churning about an OutKast reunion (too late!) we need to stress that Big Boi and André 3000 have not recently shared a studio space, but they have shared a studio partner.
Each rapper separately collaborated with T.I. on two tracks that were released into the blogosphere last night: Big Boi’s “In the A,” from of his upcoming album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, and T.I.’s “Sorry,” from his own upcoming Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head, features an Andre verse.
However, if you listen hard enough, you can find a glimmer of hope in André’s contribution: “This the type of s— that’ll make you call your rap partner/and say I’m sorry I’m awkward/ my fault for fu–ing up the tour.”
Well, then call him already, André! Gillette can sponsor your totally not-f—ed-up reunion tour.
