OutKast Opener Kid Cudi Tells Quiet Crowd To Suck His Dick

Last night, Outkast wrapped up a three-night concert series in their hometown of Atlanta called #ATLast (there’s photos from the event here, if you’re interested). Kid Cudi was one of the openers on Saturday and, according to a Redditor who says that they were at the show, he got fed up with the crowd not… More »

André 3000: “I Really Don’t Actually Get Anything From Performing”

OutKast have spent the summer on a grand reunion tour, playing their hits at an insane number of festivals around the world and generally reminding the world that they are perhaps the greatest rap group that has ever existed. But at various shows, onlookers have noted that André 3000, the more elusive half of the… More »

Osheaga 2014: Lorde, The Replacements, HAIM, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, & More

More than most North American cities, Montreal gets it right when it comes to hosting music festivals. Fortunate enough to have a setting like Parc Jean-Drapeau, located in the heart of the city, a five-minute subway ride from downtown, the Canadian city is able to pull off a music-and-arts festival like Osheaga with relative ease.

The 10 Best Sets At Governors Ball 2014

I recognize this is an issue of taste, but Governors Ball 2014 was a little bit of a mixed bag for me. There were two headliners I loved, and they conflicted, and I had no interest in the subsequent four on Saturday and Sunday. After being impressed and surprised repeatedly on Friday, I had a… More »

BottleRock 2014 Saturday: OutKast And Weezer Deliver The Hits, No Age Open For Smash Mouth

Every now and then, it’s good to reorient your perspective. At any given more established or mainstream festival stocked with your usual indie mainstays, No Age wouldn’t come across as too out there or jarring, but between BottleRock’s semi-bucolic surroundings, laidback tone and pace, and generally more rustic or easygoing lineup (the band was playing… More »

OutKast Played A Tense, Private Show For Adult Swim Last Night

When OutKast played their first reunion set at Coachella last month, there were reports that Andre 3000, away from the stage for so long, seemed tense up there, annoyed at sound issues and at a crowd who could’ve been more excited. Those issues may be getting worse. Last night, for the Adult Swim upfronts, the… More »

Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik Turns 20

They were kids. Watch the first few OutKast videos, and that reality keeps smacking you in the face, over and over. Both members of OutKast hadn’t quite left their teens when they released Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, their first album, 20 years ago tomorrow. Big Boi still had a hint of pubescent chirp in his voice. André 3000… More »

Future – “Benz Friends (Watchuola)” (Feat. André 3000)

Honest, the much-anticipated new album from Future, started streaming online a couple of days ago, but that stream had a couple of big omissions. “Never Satisfied,” Future’s Drake collab, is on the stream, but it’s only an abridged version of the song. And more frustratingly, “Benz Friends (Watchuola),” Future’s track with the mercurial OutKast enigma… More »

Coachella 2014: The 8 Best Things From Friday

The first day of Coachella brought us the first Outkast concert since 2006, the fourth Replacements concert since 1991, and the first time Haim was on the festival grounds legally. (According to Este, the sisters have been hopping the fence since 2004.) It spawned thoughts in my brain such as “Wow, Chromeo is now famou… More »

Watch OutKast Reunite At Coachella

Looking back, it’s hard to believe that there was ever any doubt that an OutKast reunion would happen. When the rumor mill started up last fall, it seemed like a pipe dream but here we are a few months later and OutKast is headlining over 40 festivals this year in their first tour since the… More »

Watch André 3000 Play Jimi Hendrix In A Clip From All Is By My Side

We learned last year that André 3000 would play Jimi Hendrix in the new biopic All Is By My Side. The movie faces an unfortunate problem: Hendrix’s estate denied the film the rights to use the man’s music. But Hendrix covered a ton of other musicians’ songs, and it looks like the movie, which focuse… More »

Watch Miley Cyrus Cover “Yoshimi” With The Flaming Lips And Turn OutKast’s “Hey Ya!” Into A Country Ballad

Miley Cyrus has long been a fan of the Flaming Lips. She’s been tweeting their lyrics for years and has called Wayne Coyne one of her favorite artists of all time. For his part, the OKC psych-rock band’s leader has tweeted at Cyrus, too and gave her props in a recent interview. So last night’… More »

Wireless Festival 2014 Lineup

Two editions of the Wireless Festival hit the U.K. this July 4-6 — one at London’s Finsbury Park, the other at Birmingham’s Perry Park — and it looks like some of America’s best and brightest will be across the pond for Independence Day.
