[LISTEN: Big Boi ‘Reunites’ With Andre 3000 on Frank Ocean’s PINK MATTER (AUDIO)]
While many (not me) ran with the idea that Big’s verse on Pink Matter meant that Outkast would soon be reunited, Dre hit the streets to clear up any misconceptions about an Outkast ‘reunion’.
So here’s what Andre’ 3000 wants fans to know…
It’s important for me to be clear about the origins of my contributions to ‘Pink Matter’ and ‘Sorry.’
I was approached as a solo artist by both Frank Ocean & Tip. I discussed musical direction with each artist and completed my verses. It was after that when Big Boi’s name came up.
I never want to mislead our audience – I worried that some would think these were Outkast collaborations.
These songs are not Outkast collaborations. I discussed this rationale with Big, Frank and T.I. and everyone agreed. That is why I was surprised to read about these remixes.
I understand that anyone can put out an unofficial remix to any song but I have an obligation to be honest with fans about what this is ? and what it isn’t.” (Source)
So did that finally answer y’all’s questions about Outkast or what? 😯
