Today in Hip-Hop: OutKast Reunite at Coachella
On this day, April 11, in hip-hop history...
2014: After years of speculation, Atlanta hip-hop duo OutKast reunited for the first time in seven years at Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, Calif. on April 11, 2014.
It was announced in January of that year that Andre 3000 and Big Boi would be the headlining act of Coachella's Day 1 festivities and fans of the pivotal group went half crazy over the news. Tickets for the event sold out within minutes to catch a glimpse of the pair onstage for the first time in almost a decade.
Performing their late-90s, early-2000 hits like “B.O.B. (Bombs Over Bahgdad),” “Rosa Parks,” “ATLiens,” “Da Art of Story Telling,” “Skew It On The Bar-B,” “SpottieOttieDopaliscious” 3 stacks and Big Boi sent the crowd of nearly 30,000 concert goers back in time with funky, lucid, nostalgic feels. Even Twitter was buzzing over the live stream of their set. Performing with a large revolving cube with projected images as their main stage prop, the guys welcomed Janelle Monae, Sleepy Brown and Future on stage as guests to perform past collaborations.
