While they may not exactly be beefing, they're still seemingly not working on any new OutKast material. And in going a step further, one-half of the duo, André 3000, recently disclosed that the pair of forthcoming tracks that will feature both himself and Big Boi are not at all OutKast collaborations.
It's important for me to be clear about the origins of my contributions to 'Pink Matter' and 'Sorry.' I was approached as a solo artist by both Frank Ocean & Tip. I discussed musical direction with each artist and completed my verses. It was after that when Big Boi's name came up.
So while we will be getting some new material featuring the legendary pair, again, it has nothing to do with the OutKast name. Three Stacks went on to say:
I never want to mislead our audience - I worried that some would think these were Outkast collaborations. These songs are not Outkast collaborations. I discussed this rationale with Big, Frank and T.I. and everyone agreed. That is why I was surprised to read about these remixes. I understand that anyone can put out an unofficial remix to any song but I have an obligation to be honest with fans about what this is … and what it isn't.
Are these two done making music together, as OutKast, for good?
