A few days ago REVOLT reported that Big Boi and Andre 3000 are currently working on their new solo albums and giving the projects priority over an OutKast reunion disc. Now, Big Boi confirms that he is indeed working on a new solo project in addition to his 40 scheduled concerts with Three Stacks this year.
Mr. DJ a long-time collaboration with the duo had this to say about each of their new albums:
He’s not certain, but—brace yourself—he believes 3000 will drop his long-awaited solo album this year. BET’s Stephen Hill hinted at the idea last summer, when he tweeted out that Dre mentioned dropping a new album at the top of 2014. While it may not be coming that soon, a lot of material has been recorded for it, Mr. DJ notes.
Big Boi, meanwhile, also has a fair amount of material recorded for his own solo project, and Mr. DJ was in Stankonia with him just last week laying tracks down for it. The bigger plan at hand, it seems, is for both MCs to go on their 40-date festival run, drop solo projects, and then get back in the studio for a group project. Going on tour, Mr. DJ says, should help rekindle their creative relationship.
