Big Boi - OutKast set to reunite at Coachella

OutKast are set to reunite at Coachella 2014.

Producer Rico Wade has confirmed André 3000 and Big Boi will be gracing the stage at this year's festival after a seven-year hiatus.

Rico told music website Stereogum that he wants his cousin, rapper Future, to join the pair at their reunion in California in April.

The article reads: ''As we bide our time in the lobby, he [Rico] affably spills the beans about unreleased André 3000 solo songs from a decade ago and his hopes to score Future a cameo during OutKast's reunion sets at Coachella.

''Eventually he pulls out his iPhone and plays me a Future/André collaboration he produced called 'Benz Bitch' that's earmarked for Honest [Future's next LP].

''It's yet another side of Future and one rarely heard: brainy, libidinous space-age funk mined from Stankonia's dankest caverns, an homage to his Dungeon Family roots.''

Rico has close ties to OutKast following the glory days of the Atlanta rap scene - as Organized Noise headed up the production side of the duo's hit 'So Fresh, So Clean'.

OutKast haven't worked together since they created the soundtrack for the 2006 musical film 'Idlewild', and have been discussing getting back together for some time.

Since 2007, they have been on hiatus and both members have pursued solo careers, although the group moved to Epic Records in 2011.

Big Boi previously said: ''It's 20 years, man. We started out at 15, 16 years old. We made our first album when we were 17 years old. Twenty-five million records later, seven Grammys, I feel great.''

Coachella will take place across two weekends from April 11 until 13 and April 18 until 20 in Indio, California.
