As anticipation for Coachella builds and the lineup is solidified, news is starting to leak out on who will actually be on the billing. While an OutKast reunion was pretty much a sure thing , it was finally locked in by Organized Noize member Rico Wade.
Wades' recent interview in Stereogum regarding another Atlanta based hip hop artist, Future, reads:
As we bide our time in the lobby, he affably spills the beans about unreleased Andre 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/Andre collaboration he produced called “Benz Bitch” that’s earmarked for Honest. 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.
Last week, DJ/producer the Magician, aka Stephen Fasano, posted "“I’m the first artist announced for Coachella 2014! See you there ☆” on his Facebook page.
