OutKast is reportedly ready to end their hiatus. Sources tell Billboard that the duo comprised of Andre Benjamin a.k.a Andre 3000 and Antwan Patton a.k.a. Big Boi are currently in talks to reunite at next year's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
The annual festival will be held in Indio, California on April 11-13 and April 18-20. After that, the Atlanta-based rappers are going to join forces again to headline some other festivals scheduled for next year.
A source reveals that there have been "some conversations" about OutKast working together again, while another says that it's "all systems go" for the two members to end their hiatus next year. A representative for the duo hasn't commented on the report.
OutKast decided to take a break after releasing their last project, 2006's "Idlewild", which also served as the soundtrack to the film of the same name. During the nearly-eight-year hiatus, Big Boi released his solo albums while Andre 3000 made guest appearances in Frank Ocean, Drake, T.I., and Ke$ha's songs as well as played Jimi Hendrix in a biopic titled "All Is by My Side".
In an interview with GQ last year, Andre 3000 shot down rumors of an OutKast reunion, saying, "There's been a lot of talk on the Internet about an OutKast album and I have to say that as of now, there are no plans for another OutKast album."
