Now that Outkast has reunited for a tour, many have begun to speculate about whether or not the duo is working on a new album, which would be their first offering since the 2006 Idlewild soundtrack. In a backstage interview during the NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans, Big Boi cleared up rumors surrounding a follow-up project.
The rapper confirms that he hasn’t hit the studio with Andre 3000. “No, no, no. We’re just doing the tour only, just for the fans,” he clarifies to Revolt TV. “That’s all it is, just the tour.”
Instead, Big Boi plans to give fans his solo mixtape inspired by HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones.
“I think it’ll be out in the next couple of weeks,” he revealed of the project. “We got Common, Wale doing something, and I’m doing a track as well on there. And a couple surprise guests.”
Outkast is expected to announce more dates for their upcoming tour soon.
