OutKast is celebrating their 20th anniversary and is currently on their festival tour.
Today, an image began leaking out on Twitter that seemed to indicate that OutKast was planning a homecoming show in Atlanta in September. The photo, above, is a pretty creative way of spreading rumors, with only those who know their silhouettes able to understand what it was implying (though most ‘Kast fans would be able to figure it out pretty easily). The show would be the duo’s first ATL performance since reuniting at Coachella in April; during their 40-festival reunion tour, however, they did stop through Counterpoint Festival April 27, which is located in Kingston Downs, Ga., about an hour and a half from Atlanta.
While it hasn’t been confirmed—reps for the duo declined to comment—it could mark their first non-festival performance this year, and for a group that did more to define the sound of the South than just about anyone, it would definitely be something to remember.
