OutKast is reuniting and the Grammy-winning duo will go on a reunion run that includes a 40-plus-date festival tour throughout the Spring and Summer. This news didn't just make fans excited but plenty of hip-hop artists. Yesterday (Jan. 21), Wiz thanks Big Boi and Andre 3000 for giving him and fellow fans a chance to witness them play some of their classics records. So XXL compiled a list of 14 rappers who expressed their love for OutKast reuniting.

B.o.B Reviews OutKast’s ‘Speakerboxxx/The Love Below’– XXL Issue 150

It definitely took me by surprise. I think that’s what made it so dope because they’re one of those groups where you’re always surprised. Even though you wasn’t expecting it, you wanted that. They always pull your mind outside the box, and they did it again with that one.

[My favorite songs] are probably “Hey Ya,” “Roses”, “The Rooster” and the song Big did with Jay Z and Killer mIke on Speakerboxxx, “Flip Flop Rock.

Outkast is another example of a complete artistic package But these r all relatively PRE-INTERNET artists which I think has alot 2 do wit it”

"I saw the same as you on the blogs. I’m excited for that, bruh. I mean, [I’ve been] waiting years for more content, more music. Being the kind of OutKast fan I am and wanting them to do another OutKast album? Hell yeah. He is the kind of artist that every time he drops something, it kind of changes the realm of music. And I’m always excited to hear what really creative minds have going on and how can you take this genre farther. He has always been one of those people to test the limits. I’m excited to hear it, just as a fan and artist, to be inspired something that would probably be totally different than what we hear every day."

"I have a shrine in my apartment dedicated to Andre. I took a door off a barn and had an artist take the lyrics from his verses [and put them] on this barn door. As soon as you walk into my apartment that’s the first thing you see."
