OutKast Reunites On Frank Ocean’s ‘Pink Matter’ Remix

Well, sort of. Andre 3000 lent himself to Frank Ocean’s Pink Matter and Big Boi has released his own remix. The pair were originally invited to join the track together, but declined. Via PopDust, Andre 3000 had said he "didn’t want an OutKast record coming out on anybody else’s LP." They last released a double album, Speakerboxx/The Love Below in 2003 and the movie/album Idlewild in 2006.

Instead Andre 3000 rapped some verses on Pink Matter alone; Big Boi’s remix, which dropped today, includes verses before Andre’s.

It’s hard not to read the the move as weird, possibly passive aggressive. But the end product is melancholy and gorgeous, so I guess it doesn’t really matter if they’re having a "beef," as rappers call it. 

Enjoy the remix below:
