Bittersweet news for OutKast fans today. Despite the continual circulation of rumors and theories, the most vocal half of the duo, Big Boi, confirmed the news that none of us wanted to hear but we all knew was coming anyway: there is no new OutKast album in the works. “No, no, no. We’re just doing the tour only, just for the fans,” he told Revolt. “That’s all it is, just the tour.”

The good news, however, is that Fat Sax is working on new mixtape which he said could drop in the next few weeks. The project, inspired by the hit TV series Game of Thrones, will also feature appearances from Common, Wale and “a couple surprise guests.” Don’t forget, Big Boi is also working on his third solo album, due later this year.
