There's no reason to stop dreaming, right? Outkast will close out the 2014 Hangout Festival on Sunday night (May 18), and believe it or not, you will be able to watch it live starting at 10 p.m. ET at hangout.mtv.com.
In addition to hearing two hours of career-spanning classics from "Player's Ball" to "Hey Ya," here are a few things the people (and by "the people" I mostly mean me and Danny Brown) would love to see. In spite of the very slim chances that most of these things will actually come to fruition, we'll just keep on wishing anyway and sit back and enjoy two hours of classic Outkast.
Songs From The Vault
There's plenty of Outkast material that fans have never gotten a chance to hear live, but Danny Brown had some extra special requests when we caught up with him after his Hangout set.
"I would wanna hear something they don't play live often like 'Spottieottiedopaliscious' and 'Mamacita,' something like that. Bring out Witchdoctor [and do] some real Dungeon Family stuff," he said. "Or, my favorite, it's not even an Outkast song, it's [technically] a Goodie Mob/Dungeon Family song: 'Black Ice,' -- I'd love to see them do 'Black Ice.' "
A BRAND NEW SONG!
Sorry -- excuse the caps. But yeah, with a slew of festival dates to cover this year, is it too difficult to find some time during those days off to record new material? We're not asking for a full album, even a one-off track will do for now.
A Joint Album Announcement
Disregard what we just said, because it would be incredible to hear that Andre 3000 and Big Boi have even considered releasing another joint album. It could be next month, next year or, hell, even 2016...it's the thought that counts at this point.
Like Danny Brown said, there's plenty of classic material dating back to the Dungeon Family era, leading all the way up to collaborations with artists like Janelle Monae. A few guests spots would just take the show to another level.
An Andree 3000 Solo Album Teaser
Hey Three Stacks, we've been waiting forever and a day (word to Big K.R.I.T) to hear some new solo music. Are you really giving up on us, or just timing this perfectly? Let us know what's good, please.
An encore performance of "Hey Ya!"
Because one time simply isn't enough. We deserve a chance to "shake it like a Polaroid picture" at least twice.
