Big Boi – “CPU 2.0″ (Feat. Phantogram & Sade) & “Thom Yarbrough” (Feat. Yarbrough & Peoples)

Even in the midst of headlining 40+ music festivals with the reunited OutKast, Big Boi and Andre 3000 both have new solo albums coming this year according to Revolt TV. And in the lead-up to Big Boi’s follow-up to 2012’s Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors, he’s releasing a series of mashups repurposing some of hi… More »

Governors Ball 2014 Lineup

We already knew that OutKast would headline this summer’s Governors Ball festival in New York; it followed Coachella as the second reunion show that the legendary duo had announced. But the rest of the lineup for Governors Ball, which comes to New York City’s Randall’s Island 6/6-8, is online now; as Idolator points out, it… More »

Queen Latifah Says OutKast Are Working On New Album

Fun fact: Before Queen Latifah became a daytime-TV star, her Flavor Unit company managed a number of big early-’90s rap and R&B groups including, for a time, OutKast. That doesn’t necessarily make her the greatest authority in all things OutKast, but you’d have to figure that she would know more than most about the group’… More »

A post on the group’s official site announced that they’ll be a featured act at more than 40 music festivals this year as part of a twentieth anniversary tour. The dates are expected to… More »

OutKast To Headline Governors Ball 2014

Less than 24 hours after the official Coachella lineup affirmed the OutKast reunion we’ve been hearing about in one form or another since last fall, another fest has announced OutKast as headliners. This time, as Rolling Stone reports, it’s New York’s traditionally soggy Governors Ball, which last year boasted Kanye West, Guns N’ Roses, and… More »

OutKast To Reunite In 2014

Earlier today, Tom speculated that OutKast might reunite for Coachella next year, and now, we get confirmation that they’ll do just that … and more. Yep, Revolt TV has confirmed the greatest musical duo of all time (arguably, that is — I’m still not sure if we’re counting Steely Dan here) are reuniting for aMore »

OutKast To Reunite At Coachella?

This is all purely speculative, but several sources have reportedly told Billboard that OutKast, arguably the greatest rap duo of all time, might reunite to headline next year’s Coachella festival. According to various sources, the group has at least been in talks to play the festival and possibly to do some other festivals next summer. More »

Speakerboxxx/The Love Below Turns 10

While visiting my alma mater last week, I spent some time working from the back room of a coffee shop, the same room where I used to drag my acoustic guitar on stage for open mic night when I was in college. That room dredges up lots of memories, but none of them are a… More »

Watch Tame Impala Cover OutKast

Here Australian psych champions Tame Impala return to their homeland’s biggest radio station to do Triple J’s consistently successful Like A Version series. In an impressive display of lateral thinking, the band chose a song that suits their strengths while also feeling a bit unexpected: André 3000’s The Love Below paean to perfection “Prototype.” It’… More »

The 10 Best OutKast Songs

In roughly the early 1900s, painting dissolved into abstraction and appropriation, and artists working since then have veered away from realism. As modern life splintered and proliferated, popular music rushed to catch up to the visual arts, first with the advances of jazz and then with those of its contemporary offspring, hip hop. While a… More »

Frank Ocean – “Pink Matter (Remix)” (Feat. André 3000 & Big Boi)

Frank Ocean orchestrates an OutKast reunion of sorts with this remix of “Pink Matter,” one of Channel Orange’s most melancholic tracks. While the song already featured a bleak-toned verse from André 3000, Big Boi hops on here in a bout of ‘Kast-fan service. It’s not the most stellar collaboration, as it seems like Big Boi… More »

Watch Big Boi On Letterman

Last night, Big Boi played musical guest on the Late Show With David Letterman, surging through “Apple Of My Eye,” a rippling funk track from his new solo album Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors. Big Boi brought a full backing band, including the visibly delighted producer Jake Troth, who played gawky, incongruous backup singer. It’… More »

Big Boi – “In The A” (Feat. T.I. & Ludacris) Video

The bangingest banger from Big Boi’s recent album Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors is “In The A,” the Atlanta superstar summit that also features on-fire turns from T.I. and Ludacris. And now all three guys sneer hard and dress extremely well in the song’s no-frills video. Director Alexi Papalexopoulos films everything on Atlanta streetcorners and… More »

Album Of The Week: Big Boi Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors

After Speakerboxxx, after Big Boi Presents Got Purp?, after Sir Lucious Left Foot, it’s now possible to say that Big Boi, the solo artist, has his very own aesthetic — one pretty far removed from the ruminative Dungeon Family gutbucket soul-funk that animated the first three OutKast albums. Big Boi’s sound builds on the anarchic… More »

Watch Big Boi And Little Dragon Play Fallon

Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors, the new solo album from OutKast’s Big Boi, has a few collaborations with Swedish pop group Little Dragon. Little Dragon were also the original guests on “Mama Told Me,” the album’s single, but former Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland eventually replaced them. On Friday night, though, Big Boi was the… More »

Big Boi – “She Hates Me” (Feat. Kid Cudi)

Next week, Big Boi releases his all-over-the-place solo album Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors, and we’ve already heard a whole pile of its songs: “She Said OK,” “Gossip,” “Mama Told Me,” “Lines,” “In The A.” And now here’s yet another: “She Hates Me,” a profoundly bummed relationship song with a drunkenly-gargled Kid Cudi hook. Hear… More »

T.I. – “Sorry” (Feat. André 3000)

André 3000 barely ever raps anymore, but he has a rare knack for showing up two or three times a year and melting your entire brain. Case in point: “Sorry,” an absolutely gorgeous new six-minute song with T.I., from Tip’s new Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head album. It’s an excellent song before André eve… More »

Big Boi – “Mama Told Me” (Feat. Kelly Rowland) Video

Earlier today, we saw the bizarrely indie-heavy tracklist for Big Boi’s forthcoming solo album Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors. And even the buoyant single “Mama Told Me” originally featured Little Dragon. The official version of it, though, features Kelly Rowland, making this a collaboration between the second bananas in two of the greatest and most… More »

Big Boi Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors Details

Next month, OutKast rapper Big Boi releases his second solo album Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors, and we’ve already heard a bunch of songs: “She Said OK,” “Gossip,” “Mama Told Me,” “Lines.” Apparently, though, we did not know just how far this album was going to go.

We now have the Big Boi… More »
