Andre 3000 turns a young 37 today. While wishing him a very happy birthday we figured we’d plead our case for him to call up his bro Big Boi so they can get in the studio for another classic Outkast LP. Stat.
Sure there must be good money in making those Gillette commercials with Adrien Brody and Gael García Bernal. Cool story bro. However, the fans’ patience has worn thin. We’re no longer patiently waiting an Outkast album. It’s been seven long years, fam. Your brother Big Boi is on some real grown up stuff, and he’s ready to get to work. But no. You shut down all of our dwindling hopes when Big Boi added his verse to Frank‘s “Pink Matter” with that awful press release stating “these aren’t Outkast collaborations.” Why won’t you let a great thing be great?
It’s your birthday so don’t take this as us coming for you. Hey, we’re just fans of the music. Outkast helped integrate NY radio for southern rappers. Y’all are (or were?) that damn good. We don’t want to imagine a world without anymore collaborative music from the duo who created Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik and Aquemini and Speakerboxxx/The Love Below although we should’ve taken the hint with the latter. Music needs you, together, with Big Boi. Hopefully you’re in a studio somewhere–together–enjoying your birthday of course.
