Big Boi to Appear on New Version of Frank Ocean and Andre 3000's "Pink Matter"
Published Jan 02, 2013Beloved rap duo Outkast haven't appeared on record together since 2007's Idlewild, but that's all about to change, as Big Boi has announced he'll soon be appearing on a couple of cuts already featuring verse from Andre 3000.
Via his Tumblr, Big Boi wrote over the weekend that he's "Dropping a verse on this Frank Ocean 'Pink Matter,'" and posted a pic of some scribbles for extra proof. The original song, which appeared on Ocean's Channel Orange LP, featured some words from Andre 3000.
Big Boi had initially been tapped to contribute to the track, but he tweeted in the summer that he pulled out as "Dre didn't want an Outkast Record Coming out on anybody else LP." Clearly things have changed, as the revamped track is slated to pop up sometime next week.
Today (January 2), Big Boi tweeted he'll also be appearing on a reworked version of T.I.'s "Sorry," which had Andre spitting some lines directed to Big Boi about their hiatus ("this the type of shit that'll make you call your rap partner And say I'm sorry I'm awkward/ my fault for fuckin' up the tours/ I hated all the attention so I ran from it").
While the redos can't be considered proper Outkast reunions, here's hoping something similar is in the works sometime soon.
