Around mid-September, ATL emcee Gucci Mane announced a collaboration with Outkast.
Now, Big Boi gives some claification to that announcement. The Outkast memeber explains that the song will appear on a new solo album, slated to drop in early 2017.
“I do have Gucci on this album,” Big Boi told Creative Loafing Tampa Bay. “[Gucci Mane] was just excited because the song was jammin’ like a m***********.”
Big Boi’s clarification makes sense. Nobody really knew what Gucci was talking about when he announced the Outkast collaboration, because an Outkast reunion hasn’t been talked about since their 2014 reunion tour.
No word about André 3000 being in the song. However, Outkast fans can look forward to Big Boi’s forthcoming body of work. Daddy Fat Sax tells Creative Loafing that the still-untitled album is about 80 percent done, and that he’ll likely finish by the end of January. Then his plans are to finish a joint project with Killer Mike once the Outkast rapper is finished with his solo album.
It promises to be a busy 2017 for Big Boi, we will update you as this story develops.
