Grammy-winning rapper Lupe Fiasco recently discussed the latest A Tribe Called Quest break-up and how much he wants to see OutKast reunite for at least one more music industry run.
Despite Q-Tip promising ATCQ’s last performance together would be during Kanye West‘s Yeezus tour, Fiasco admitted he could not see them hanging it up for good.
“I don’t believe that,” Lupe said when told ATCQ would never perform together again on-stage. “I don’t believe that — they’ve been together for 30 years or something like that. I don’t believe that but I understand people have their personal decisions. I didn’t grow up on A Tribe Called Quest, let me say that again. That’s what started the whole downfall with Lupe Fiasco. ‘I didn’t grow up on Tribe Called Quest, ‘But you made ‘Kick Push,’ eh, certain songs I rock with but I was listening to Spice-1. I’m sorry.’ … I hope that the Tribe Called Quest thing [isn’t true]. I hope it’s just them taking a break and they come back. I want OutKast to come back. I think these dudes are still credible, they still make great music. I still think Q-Tip’s one of the best producers of all time.” (“Whoolywood Shuffle”)
Q-Tip and his Tribe Called Quest crew reportedly performed their final live performance in New York a few weeks ago.
Fear not Tristate area! Kanye West has officially announced that Kendrick Lamar is indeed joining him on all the New York dates of his upcoming Yeezus tour. Adding to that, HOT97 unveiled that A Tribe Called Quest will also be performing on NY tour stops. The action kicks off on Oct. 19 in Seattle and ends in early Dec. in Houston. Good luck finding tickets! (Miss Info TV)
Recently, OutKast’s Big Boi unleashed photos of himself and Andre 3000 reunited onto his Instagram page.
Last month, rumors started to fly that OutKast would be reuniting in 2014. While those rumors are still unconfirmed, fans of the group have reason to be encouraged. Yesterday, Big Boi posted pictures of he and Andre 3000 hanging out together in Atlanta. One picture shows the duo hanging out on Stewart Avenue, a street that has now been renamed in the city because of its connotations with crime, and the other shows them in an undisclosed location (a studio, perhaps?). In both, Big and Dre seem like they’re having fun. We can only hope this means the group is getting back to work. (XXL Mag)
According to recent reports, the iconic rappers are slated to reunite ten years following their debut album’s release.
“After years of speculation, Revolt can report that OutKast will be reuniting and going on tour in 2014. OutKast’s Andre 3000 and Big Boi had been on hiatus since 2007 after releasing 2006’s Idlewild. Since relesaing Idlewild, Andre 3K has been busy with numerous films including the Great Gatsby with Leonardo DiCaprio. 2014 marks the 20th anniversary since their debut album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik. Perfect timing for a reunion. You best believe we’re going to have much more on the OutKast reunion right here and over on our website Revolt.TV.” (Revolt TV)
