*Outkast fans’ hearts were broken when we all learned Big Boi and Andre 3000 were banned from working together, so to speak. But there is hope for a reunion.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Big Boi didn’t say anything for sure but definitely dropped some hints of a coming collaboration.

“I think it’s very much possible because we have L.A. Reid in our corner now, and he was the first to sign Outkast,” Big Boi said, referring to the major transition Epic Records made.

Big Boi is signed as a solo artist with Def Jam while Outkast is signed to Jive. The deals kept the pair’s work from appearing on his 2010 solo debut, “Sir Lucious Left Foot: Son of Chico Dusty.”

“L.A. Reid has permission to make it happen now,” Big Boi said. “so I hope it does, and I don’t really see why it won’t.”

In the meantime, the rapper is hopeful that his next album, “Daddy Fat Sax: will be out this year with a special collaboration with Janelle Monae, a Big Boi discovery.
