Big Boi Speaks On Upcoming Projects, Possible Collab EP With Phantogram, Future Of Outkast

    It seemed people didn’t know how to take the news when we reported that Big Boi was quoted to have said that fellow Outkast member Andre 3000 somehow kept him off “Pink Matter,” the Three Stacks-featuring Frank Ocean song. In actuality, the longtime Atlanta rap duo just didn’t want to have a full-on Outkast “reunion on someone else’s album,” Big Boi told Billboard. In regards to the group, he says he’s waiting for Dre to finish his solo album, a project we’ve heard about for a while, which is supposedly still dropping this year. Then “we’ll see what happens after that.”

    In the meantime, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, Big Boi’s upcoming solo effort, is due out Nov. 13. Some confirmed appearances will be ASAP Rocky, Little Dragon, Theophilus London, Kid Cudi and Sleepy Brown. On another exciting note, Big Boi also revealed that he’s had good times in the studio with indie pop twosome Phantogram, saying:

    We have a little side project that we’re thinking about working on right now too, called Big Grams. I think we’ll put out a little EP or something after they drop the next record.
