Back in September Gucci Mane got us all excited when he said that he had worked with Outkast on new music. A rep for Andre 3000 quickly confirmed this wasn't the case but the true nature of what the Atlanta musicians had recorded remained a mystery.

Speaking in a new interview with Creative Loafing Tampa, Big Boi confirmed that he has recorded with Gucci but that the song will be on his upcoming solo album. "Me and Gucci have a record," he said. "When he said "Outkast" he was just saying that I’m part of the group, so he was excited because the song was jammin’ like a motherfucker. I do have Gucci on this album, most definitely."

Elsewhere in the interview Big Boi confirms that his album is "80 per cent" done and will be finished in January. He also says the album will touch on the current political climate. "It’s a time capsule. It’s like a diary, so it won’t be preachy per se, but I drop some things here and there, and people might to look up or read more, but there is an awareness."
