It's sad that even with Frank Ocean coming out, Andre 3k is still the biggest f*ggot in the industry.

This seems like a wise business move. Outkast is a MAJOR brand when it comes to music, once you get to a certain level you have to do everything you can to protect the legacy of the brand. Meaning you just can't put "Outkast" on everything just because it's a good look NOW. Outkast has had WAYYYY to much success to make decisions off the "what's hot now". They are two different people so they might not agree all the time on the protection of the brand, but I'm sure both of them understand the importance of it, weather they like the decision or not.

Showing my age a little, but back in High School it was the whole Ruff Ryders Vs. Wu. RR was way more popular in the mainstream, but the WU stayed in their lane and true to their product no matter what mainstream was doing. RR just did what ever was popular, to please the mainstream.

Now all that is left of Ruff Ryders, is Swizz, and your Uncles motorcycle club. WU is STILL a Brand with a aging yet still dedicated fanbase and can go on a world wide tour at will, and have every show still sell out.

...For what it's worth YMCMB has been following the same path RR took, WAYNE = DMX (self explanatory) Nicki = EVE (music career popped for a minute, will probably end up acting, sans Cash Money) Drake = Swizz (smart enough to protect his own brand while the label crumbles around him, has many years of success ahead), The rest of YMCMB = Dragon (self explanatory)

TL;DR PROTECT YOUR BRAND AT ALL COST.

Kinda has been for a while, he started to take control around ATLiens but it was real noticeable by Aquemini (and by Stankonia it was full blown, i.e. lots of guitar work played by Dre himself, etc.) Before that, it was more Organized Noize controlling them. Big's always been just a straight spitter. IMO a good comparison is Tribe, Tip was always driving the concepts but he had Phife as a spitter lace parts that still gave you that street vibe. That relationship unfortunately deteriorated because Phife wasn't feeling Tip always being in control, so egos clashed. Kast played it smarter and they found common ground. Dre would creatively bring up that gangsta vibe he knew Big liked on songs like, "Return of the G" but at the same time still kept it conceptual making a statement on how destructive the gangsta mentality was, along with people questioning his progression, "Then the question is Big Boi what's up with Andre? Is he in a cult? Is he on drugs? Is he gay? When y'all gon' break up? When y'all gon' wake up? n*gga I'm feelin' better than ever what's wrong with you? You get down! Return of the Gangsta..."

Big always stood by his boy too and supported his maturation and Dre pushed Big to expand his concepts, mentality and got him to rhyme over more unique beats – which as time has attested too – proved profitable. When it sounded weird at the time, it ended up being groundbreaking, which made OutKast what it is today. If you listen to the albums they progressively got more experimental due to Dre pushing boundaries. IMO another factor in them not clashing like Tribe is due to the success OutKast saw due to these boundary pushing moves which sold big because it was just something we've never heard before out of a rap group.

The biggest reason IMO for them not dropping a record again lately is due to Idlewild being their first real miss, financially and critically. No doubt Big would be down to just record and put out another album but I'm willing to think Dre wants to make sure the next Kast album dropped is pushing boundaries like their past efforts (in which Idlewild didn't.) Which of course means we could never see another OutKast album again, and that's okay. I'm a huge Kast stan, but they've already proved themselves and left us with classics to last a lifetime so I wouldn't be mad if they never put out another record. Same goes for Dr. Dre too IMO. They have legacies already, and they're being careful not to tarnish them.
