Big Boi Speaks On The Possibility Of A New Outkast Album
The rapper also talked about that classic Key & Peele Outkast sketch.
Speaking with The Daily Beast, Big Boi discussed a number of topics including his latest album, Boomiverse, who he is currently listening to, and if he will ever reunite with Andre 3000 for another Outkast album.
“You’ve gotta talk to Jesus, man! You’ve gotta talk to Jesus,” Big Boi said in regards to making another Outkast album. “I’m always open. I’m always open. So when plans and stars align one day…you never know.”
The ATL rapper also talked about that classic Key & Peele Outkast sketch, where the two comedians spoofed the two’s abrupt split in 2006 following the release of their film/musical Idlewild.
“That shit was hilarious. That shit was hi-la-ri-ous,” Big Boi said. “For them to spoof what people think we are is crazy, and we both had a good laugh off that. What did they say? ‘Bring him a latte with some sunflower seeds, or some shit?’ ‘Dre would order straight tequila. Tequila and some vodka and some shit.”
As for who he is currently listening to? None other than the “Bodak Yellow” queen herself, Cardi B.
“I think with Cardi B, you saw her personality on her TV show, and when she made music, she was herself,” the artist said. “People buy into other people, so I applaud her wholeheartedly. I’m just waiting to see what she gonna put out next.”
