#ATLast: Outkast’s Final Hometown Shows Will Feature 2 Chainz, Killer Mike, Janelle Monaé, Kid Cudi & More
The sold out three-night run won’t just feature special guests, but an “In Real Life” art installation from Tumblr that will feature fan-submitted art.
“I really don’t actually get anything from performing,” he said. “I feel good in being able to look at Big Boi and say, ‘Hey, man, we did it.

Here’s to Jenny Lewis’ rainbow/beige pant-suit, Neko Case’s skeleton pants, the Kills’ leopard-print backdrop, Ezra Koenig’s camo shorts, and Janelle always giving us shivers when she sings ‘Given ‘Em What They Love.’
The band’s much anticipated return to the stage was everything a hardcore fan could ask for, but maybe a little too deep for your typical Coachella attendee.

Kanye West and Jay Z asked us to Watch the Throne, but now HBO is asking us to catch it with the release of a new mixtape.
If you can’t see OutKast at any of their already announced festival dates–Coachella, Hangout Fest, Firefly Festival, Sasquatch! and NYC’s Governors Ball–don’t worry, there’s still Canada.
Going from the must-see Coachella headliner to this year’s over saturated festival act in less than a week, that has to be a record.
Live shows, or lack thereof, have been a main creative rift between Andre “André 3000” Benjamin and Antwan “Big Boi” Patton, who formed the influential Southern rap act in high school in 1992. So is this reunion tour an opportunistic publicity/cash grab or a genuine, new chapter for OutKast?
After 2006’s Idlewild, the two put the group on indefinite hiatus to focus on their respective solo careers.
The rap duo’s 5th album — a double split LP — tried to follow up ‘Stankonia.’ It may have been the last time André 3000 and Big Boi really spoke to each other.
Sir Lucious Left Foot’s own left leg may have gotten him in trouble.
