Don't get me wrong, I love Outkast as much as the next Bouncer. However, when I repeatedly read that their new album is on the way and to be patient because it's going to be [enter hyperbole] I start to wonder how long is too long. In an interview with AllHipHop.com, Big Boi says more of the same:
"For all you Outkast lovers the album is coming. I'm tired of talking
about it and know y'all are tired of hearing me talk about it. But its
coming and the album is fire!"
Audiences held out for what felt like an eternity for Maxwell, sure, and rewarded his hiatus with sold-out concerts and high album sales. And surely if folks like D'Angelo (sigh) or Lauryn Hill (deep, exaggerated sigh) drop another album in the next millennium people will scoop them up with super quickness. It's been six years since Speakerboxxx/The Love Below. Do you have faith that it wont be another few before Outkast makes a triumphant return? How long are you willing to wait?
