Outkast’s Big Boi has confirmed he has signed up with Sony label Epic for his in-the-pipeline new solo album, which sees him working once again with Epic US boss LA Reid, who originally signed AndrĂ© ‘AndrĂ© 3000’ Benjamin and Antwan ‘Big Boi’ Patton to his La Face label back in 1992.

Confirming the new deal, Big Boi is quoted by Huffington Post as saying: “I’m back with [Antonio] LA Reid and Sylvia Rhone. Got a brand new situation”.

As for the new record, he admitted the live reunion with his Outkast partner will delay things slightly, adding: “I wanted to put something out before the end of the year. It depends, because me and Dre got a lot of work to do from now until the end of October. [But] you’re definitely going to get some brand new Big Boi material. Two or three singles before the fall”.
