On Monday (June 12), TMZ caught up with up with Organized Noize member Sleepy Brown at Los Angeles International Airport and asked him to give fans an update on the status of legendary Atlanta duo OutKast. Sleepy’s assessment of the situation was a bleak one.
“Will OutKast come back together? No, they not,” Sleepy Brown revealed. “[Andre 3000] is on a whole other journey. He’s…you know, he’s doing something right now. But, me and Big [Boi], we still doing it. Still doing tour and stuff.”
OutKast‘s last official group album Speakerboxxx/The Love Below dropped back in September of 2003. The album won Album of the Year and Best Rap Album at the 2004 Grammy Awards. In 2006, they released the Idlewild soundtrack. Shortly afterward, Andre 3000 distanced himself from the music industry.
Andre 3000 has appeared to have lost interest in making music, only appearing on a dozen or so songs over the last two decades. Over the years, there have been rumors that 3 Stacks would drop a solo album. However, the Atlanta rapper seems content showing up at random places with his flute.
