Outkast: reports duo are working on new music denied

Gucci Mane said that he worked on 'a record for Outkast'

Gucci Mane recently suggested he had worked on new music with Outkast, but a representative for André 3000 has since refuted the rapper’s claims.

Outkast have not released a studio album since their 2003 double LP ‘Speakerboxxx/The Love Below’ but their Atlanta counterpart posted a Snapchat video recently listing all the artists he has been working with, one of them being stated as Outkast. “I just did a record for Outkast,” he says in the clip.

However, a representative for André 3000 has since told NME that there is “no Outkast news to report”.

Outkast reformed for a series of shows – including a Coachella headline slot – in 2014, which André 3000 later said he regretted, describing the reformation as “selling out”.

André has since backtracked on his comments, saying: “It was a great thing; everybody enjoyed themselves. The fans got something they really didn’t expect. And I didn’t expect that at the time – we just went out and had a good time.”

André 3000 has also been pictured in the studio with Jack White and Chris Rock.
