are that extremely rare package – a hip-hop outfit with mainstream traction an album career that’s only the odd bum note away from flawless.
However, the Atlanta duo, comprised of Big Boi and Andre 3000, have not recorded together since 2006 as they’ve both been focusing on their solo careers. But it seems like that time is coming to an end as Outkast announced they will be officially getting back together.
I agree with you that the two probably had moved past working together. You point to thefollow-up , as a possible reconciliation album (or at least one to give the illusion of such), but even that album, with its 25 tracks only features four tracks with both listed together as writers, one of which ironically was entitled “Hollywood Divorce”. Even in the film itself the two hardly share screentime together, only appearing a few times in the same scene. though it has some good numbers and even features Janelle Monáe while still Big Boi’s understudy, can sometimes feel like the two are expressing a collective exhaustion and that, yes, with this the two are formally over as Outkast.
