Big Boi promises new OutKast album

In The Studio

Big Boi has told Rolling Stone that he and Andre 3000 will start work on a new OutKast album as soon as his fellow musician finishes his solo LP, though he adds that they’ve been working on new material together off and on of late, in any case.

The hip hop star is quoted as saying: “As soon as Dre finishes his solo record, we’ll get the Kast cranking. Since we’ve both been working with Organized Noize on our solo projects, we hear different records and be like, ‘Well, we’re gonna keep this one for the Kast album’. We’re cooking up tracks, all right. Never stop. That’s an everyday thing.”

Big Boi appeared at SxSW last week and previewed tracks from his own upcoming solo album, ‘Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty’, which is due for release this summer.
