OutKast Reunion at Coachella Confirmed
During a recent interview with Stereogum, Organized Noize member Rico Wade reaffirmed that OutKast's long-awaited reunion would come during the 2014 installment of Coachcella. In addition to confirming the festival slot, Wade also mentioned that he hoped to lock down a guest appearance from his younger cousin, Future, during the set.

As we bide our time in the lobby, he affably spills the beans about unreleased Andre 3000 solo songs from a decade ago and his hopes to score Future a cameo during OutKast’s reunion sets at Coachella. Eventually he pulls out his iPhone and plays me a Future/Andre collaboration he produced called “Benz Bitch” that’s earmarked for Honest. It’s yet another side of Future and one rarely heard: brainy, libidinous space-age funk mined from Stankonia’s dankest caverns, an homage to his Dungeon Family roots.
