Though we have been writing about Big Boi for a while now (on the basis of the promising singles “Shine Blockas” and “ Shutterbugg” and because of a new record that will finally be released on July 6th via Def Jam), it wasn’t until yesterday that the official tracklist was announced. Just a few hours ago we learned that the former two singles plus “ General Patton” will be included on an album with plenty of collaborations. Patton’s old acquaintances like Sleepy Brown and Khujo Goodie, and illustrious North American rap, funk and R&B artists like Gucci Mane, Too Short, B.o.B, T.I., George Clinton, Jamie Foxx and Janelle Monáe are included on the album credits where we’ve noticed Andre 3000 is nowhere to be seen. Is this a symptom of disagreement between Outkast’s two halfs? Big Boi himself has said through his twitter feed that this is not the case, that the reason Dre is not participating on the album is because of a rift between the Jive and Def Jam music houses. If you’d like to hear what’s going on, following the thread up to this 2DopeBoyz post.
