Rumor has it Andre 3000 and Big Boi might finally reunite next year.

Will Outkast Reunite at Coachella?

In this article…

If you ask millenials which band they would most like to see reunite, the definitive answer would most likely be Outkast. Andre 3000 and Big Boi split to pursue solo endeavors after their 2006 album Idlewild (the followup to the masterful Speakerboxxx/The Love Below) and fans have been begging for a reunion ever since. They have both done some notable things since the split (Big Boi put out two solo albums, Andre has done plenty of terrific features and has pursued his acting career), but that pales in comparison to what a reunion would bring. But any rumors of reunions were all quickly squashed.

Well, this latest one might actually stick. Billboard is reporting that the celebrated rap group might reunite at Coachella in 2014. 

"The Atlanta hip-hop duo is indeed in talks to reunite next year for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, multiple sources have confirmed to Billboard. Under the current plan, Coachella, which kicks off on Apr. 11, 2014 in Indio, Calif., would be the start of the reunion run and would be followed by additional festival dates in 2014.

"One source tells Billboard that there have definitely been "some conversations" about Outkast reuniting, while another says it is "all systems go" for Big Boi and Andre 3000 to end their hiatus next year. A rep for Outkast did not comment for this story, while reps for their current label home, Epic, as well as Coachella organizer Goldenvoice, did not respond to request for comment at press time."

If this is indeed true, my level of excitement will not be contained. I think the only reasonable reaction to this news is:

HEY YA. Let's just hope these rumors are true. More on the potential story as it develops.
