Gucci Mane: “I Just Did a Record For Outkast”
Since being released from prison in May, Gucci Mane has released a full-length album, recorded a follow-up mixtape, and begun work on a collaborative EP with Drake. He reportedly has found time to also eat, sleep and use the washroom.
In addition to recording new material for himself, Guwop announced on Snapchat earlier this evening (September 5) that he's recorded verses for Lil Wayne, Lil Boosie, Project Pat, E-40 and... Outkast!

Wait, what?!? Did Gucci Mane just say he did a record for Outkast? As in Andre 3000 and Big Boi Outkast? Is there a chance he recorded a 16 for either Andre or Big Boi individually and said Outkast by mistake?
The duo's last true studio album is 2003's Diamond-certified Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, which has been followed by nothing but denied claims of a new full-length. Earlier this year, we learned that Outkast and A Tribe Called Quest had discussed the idea of a collaborative album, but the project sadly never came to fruition after the passing of Tribe emcee Phife Dawg.
In August, Big Boi announced that, in addition to a new solo full-length, he's been working on a collaborative EP with Killer Mike. While that news was certainly exciting, and we'll all welcome a Big and Mike project with open ears when it's upon us, if in fact an Outkast album is being secretly recorded it just shot up to the top spot on our Most Anticipated Albums list.
