Brew Quotes: Don’t Hold Your Breath For That New Outkast

Big Boi and Andre 3000 gave separate interviews this week about new projects, solo music, their careers and why we still haven’t heard any new material from them as a duo. Big Boi chatted up The Village Voice about how much he loves music (his new album is due next month) and puts it over everything else, going so far as turning down a role on “Sons of Anarchy” to finish his album.

Do you regret turning any of the acting jobs down?
Oh, man. Yeah. I had never heard of Sons Of Anarchy before, and they wanted me to play a recurring role for six months or so. I was supposed to be some big-time dude, I think his name is Pope or whatever. But I was in the middle of this album, and I was like, “I can’t really do this right now.” My brother was looking at me like, “You’re crazy right now,” but that’s how strong my love is for the music.

Big Boi’s new solo project, “Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors,” drops December 11th. When he was asked why we still haven’t heard Andre 3000 on his stuff, he said…

He could’ve been on any song he wanted to. I gave the motherfucker about five songs, but I guess he was just too busy. He said he had to do some Gillette shit [room erupts in laughter]. No for real. He said he had some contractual obligations.

In another interview with Hot 97, Big Boi makes it clear that there’s no beef between the two (but a Witch senses some hesitance in his voice…in my professional, non-degreed opinion).

On the flip side, music doesn’t seem to be on Andre 3000′s “to do” list. He’s got the Jimi Hendrix biopic to promote and, of course, a feature or two (or fourteen) for whatever rapper asks (ahem…except Big Boi). 3000 gave an interview of his own to Fuse and bluntly said the internet is a pool of misinformation when it comes to Outkast.

Can we lock these two in a room and just get it over with? Can they phone in some verses? I don’t know how this rappity-rap stuff works but it can’t be that hard, can it? Sheesh.

Brew Music: The Non-Outkast, Outkast Song…

“Lookin For Ya” apparently has been sitting on a shelf somewhere at Jive Records. The track features production and some spittage from Andre 3000 and Sleepy Brown. Sadly, the only place you’ll hear it is here on the innawebs, not on Big Boi’s “Sir Luscious Left Foot” project. You see, since the track features both Big Boi and Andre 300, Jive counts that as an Outkast track and maybe that’s a no-no. I dunno. Anywho… enjoy and download whilst you can.

Usher is hittin’ em hard this week, tryna move these kits. Peep his new vid with will.i.am, “OMG.”

Nicki Minaj continues to attack us with her, um, ass vocals? Here’s her video for “Massive Attack” (feat. Sean Garrett). Is anybody feeling this song though? Reviews have been quite mixed.

*I see you Amber Rose*

And, the uber-talented Janelle Monae has teamed up with Big Boi for her new her video, “Tightrope” (no, not the Kim Zolciak tightrope).

What is it with rappers these days and taxes?  You make the money, you pay the piper (and I don’t mean R-ah Kelly).  Case closed.  You might be able to hide from a crazy groupie or hide them semi-autos from the “man,” but you can’t hide your cash stash from the IRS!

Big Boi is in trouble with the gub’ment for ditching his tax payments.  He reportedly owes the state of Georgia $55,727 in back taxes.  A lien has been filed against him and his wife since June.
