Three Stacks and Big Boi have been clocking in the hours at Stankonia Studios, lighting up speculation around the idea of a new OutKast album. But Mr. DJ, the duo's longtime producer, says the two have actually been laying tracks down for their own respective solo LPs.

Mr. DJ isn't 100 percent sure, but he believes André will finally release his long-awaited solo album in 2014, telling Revolt TV a lot of the material has already been recorded.

Big Boi, on the other hand, also has a chunk of material recorded for his own project. As Mr. DJ has it, in the grand scheme of the things, both rappers will go on their 40-date festival run, release solo projects, and then return to the studio for a reunion album. Going on tour is sure to "rekindle" the pair's creative rapport.
