Rap duo Outkast, whose last album “Speakerboxxx/The Love Below” was released to critical acclaim in September 2003, will have a new full-length album on the streets sometime before the end of 2009.
Speaking to MTV News, group member Big Boi said he’s planning on releasing his second solo record, “Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son Of Chico Dusty,” either in January or February, with Andre 3000 releasing his solo effort soon after. The pair will then begin recording the Outkast project for release later in the year.
Big Boi said: “Me and ‘Dre were on the conference call [recently]. He’s working on his album; my album is done. We’re gonna wait until the top of the year–January or February–to put it out. Then Dre is gonna come hit y’all, and [then] we’re gonna do the Outkast album.”
He added: “So y’all gonna get three records from the ‘Kast next year.”
