Could the surprise breakout success of Straight Outta Compton give rise to an influx of mainstream biopics centered on legendary rap groups? Given the recent conversations around the possibility of a Straight Outta Compton sequel and now a potential Outkast biopic, the likelihood seems high.
Yep, you read correctly: an Outkast biopic may soon be in the works.
During a recent Reddit Ask Me Anything session to promote his upcoming EP Big Grams with electronic rock duo Phantogram, Big Boi revealed that he and André 3000 had discussed the idea earlier this month.
When asked by a fan about the possibility of a biopic, Big Boi offered up the following response: “Me and ‘Dre were just discussing this over Labor Day. Stay tuned.”
Would you be here for an Outkast biopic?
