After years of speculation and a whirlwind of hearsay as of late, Organized Noize affiliate Rico Wade confirms that Outkast will reunite at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this Spring.
In an interview with Stereogum that delved into Future’s burgeoning success in music, Rico (also Future’s cousin), regurgitated a piece of coveted information critical to fans’ ears.
“Rico explains, eager to shed light on his own under-recognized legacy. As we bide our time in the lobby, he affably spills the beans about unreleased André 3000 solo songs from a decade ago and his hopes to score Future a cameo during OutKast’s reunion sets at Coachella.”
Having been in hiatus since 2007 (after Idlewild), the Grammy Award-winning Atlanta duo are well overdue for this kind of reunion.
Rico further disclosed details on what Future is currently working on and revealed a collabo with André 3000.
“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.”
Coachella 2014 kicks off on April 11.
