Will L.A. Reid Get OutKast To Finally Drop An Album Together?

OutKast fans have not had an album from the group since 2006’s Idlewild soundtrack.

With Andre 3000 shifting his attention to acting, listeners have had to settle for the occasional guest verse from 3-Stacks. His partner Big Boi has been enjoying a great solo career, but there is nothing quite like having the two of them together.

Rumors of a possible reunion have been recurring like a bad rash over the years, but nothing has materialized. However, Organized Noize’s Rico Wade has reason to believe that a reunion between the player and the poet could be closer to reality than we think. In speaking to TheUrbandaily about his new collaborative album with Nappy Roots, Nappy.org, Wade revealed than the pieces may finally be in place for a new OutKast album.

“Keeping it really real, L.A. Reid–and I’m not sure if he’s all the way in–he’s going to be at Epic. Epic has Jive and Jive has OutKast,” says Wade. “It is very real sh*t. But it’s about Andre 3000, is he gonna do it. [Well] Andre’s been calling me lately. He’s ready to go in. Us working with Nappy Roots has kept the creativity going [for me]. And Big Boi’s a worker.”

Wade and his Organized Noize production team are responsible for some of the best songs that OutKast has ever recorded, including their entire debut Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, released on Reid’s LaFace Records. With the Goodie Mob also reuniting, the timing couldn’t be better for the Dungeon Family to serve up some more soul food.

“We were just together on the 4th of July talking about it but I ain’t sent no beats to them or nothing,” says Wade. “We need the five of us to get together and vibe. I’m supposed to meet with L.A Reid this week. If Antonio is involved he’s a great motivator.”
