Big Boi Talks Outkast Biopic, Relationship With Andre 3000
Big Boi's collaborative project with rock duo Phantogram, entitled Big Grams EP, is due out later this month. In support of the project, he and the other artists participated in a Reddit AMA... where he discussed Outkast and Andre 3000.
The Atlanta rap legend fielded questions about the possibility of a movie detailing the journey of Outkast.
"With all the hype of Staight [Outta] Compton, it has made me curious of other great rap stories. Any chance of an Outkast biopic of you and Andre in the future?" a user asks.
"Me and 'Dre were just discussing this over Labor Day. Stay tuned," Big Boi responded.
Later, he asked about his current relationship with Andre 3000, since the duo has not released an album since 2006's Idlewild. Comedians Key and Peele made a skit parodying the two rappers annoying each other at a cafe.
"Big Boi - have you seen the Key and Peele sketch about you and Andre meeting at a coffee shop? and if so, what did you think about it? How is your relationship with Andre 3000?"
"It was funny but it was way off," Big Boi wrote. "Anybody who follows me on my social media accounts knows that we have been hanging out all summer with our children. We've been going paintballing and had a good personal summer of brotherhood. We've been doing music so long together that we're just getting back to the friendship. The sketch was funny though."
