Outkast is ready to reunite for the firs time in nearly a decade, but, first things first. Business has to be in order. Big Boi recently signed a new management deal with Jordan Feldstein’s Career Artist Management. He joins a stable of artists that includes Maroon 5 and Robin Thicke. “Jordan is a go-getter, mover and shaker, and my kind of guy,” Big Boi said in a statement. “I love his energy. We have a lot of new material and content coming this year, and can’t wait to get things started.”
The new deal comes on the cusp of the reunion with Outkast member Andre 3000. The legendary duo plan to perform at 40 upcoming festivals, including Drake’s OVO Fest, London’s Wireless Festival and Forecastle 2014, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of their debut, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik.
