Outkast celebrated the 25th anniversary of the release of its classic sophomore album ATLiens on Aug. 25.


The ATL duo released a 25th Anniversary Edition re-issue of the album, which comes with instrumental variants of every track. In addition, several vinyl variants will be available, including a Neon Green & Blue Galaxy vinyl courtesy of Vinyl Me Please.


ATLiens includes such bangers as “Elevators (Me & You),” “Jazzy Belle,” “Wheelz Of Steel” and “Two Dope Boys (In A Cadillac).” Outkast just unveiled a new animated video for “Two Dope Boys” on Friday, Aug. 27 as well.

The Atlanta partners in rhyme also have a video game in development where players get to defend Atlanta from an alien invasion, as either Big Boi or Andre 3000. The game is being developed for mobile and desktop browsers by the London-based firm, F That. A release date is still pending.


Big Boi and Sleepy Brown, one third of Outkast’s original production squad Organized Noize, are releasing a joint album called The Big Sleepover, as well on Sept. 3. Big Boi and Sleepy dropped an animated visual to the title track, which features a dance hall vibe and singer Kay-I. “The Way You Move” hitmakers have a fall tour lined up too, which begins with a headlining set at the Major League Baseball All-Star Game in Los Angeles on Aug. 24th.

“Oh man, we’re doing everything from ‘Southernplayalistic’ to the new Big Sleepover. So, they’re going to get some of the older materials, some of the newest, some of the middle. It’s all-times classic. It’s going to be singing. So, we ain’t finna play with them at all. At all. I don’t care who out there, old ladies, babies. We finna kryptonite everything,” the “So Fresh, So Clean” MC told People about their upcoming All-Star performance.

The Big Sleepover is a Big Boi and Sleepy Brown collaborative album. The Big Sleepover was not a slumber party. It’s the opposite. We here to wake them up. So just got to check the lyrics to substance. New rhymes, melodies, cadences. When you make music and you’ve been doing it for as long as I have, it’s all about evolution. That’s how I’m able to be here now — you got to reinvent yourself every time,” Big further commented in his interview with People.
