Idlewild takes places in the 1930s and has that 30s-inspired music, you know how Outkast does it, with a hip theme. I’ve seen the trailer and it’s not bad: filled with drama, romance, gangstafied plus funk-da-fied plots and scenes. With an All-Star cast including Ben Vereen, Cicely Tyson, Macy Gray, Terrance Howard, Faizon Love, Bruce Bruce, Patti Labelle and Ving Rhames, Idlewild may top the charts for sure. According to Andre 3000, whatever you liked about Outkast in the past, you’ll be pleased on August 25. “Believe me,” he stated. The album is scheduled to hit the racks on August 22. So, keep your eyes and ears open for the reunion of Outkast, and let’s hope and pray that it continues. FUNK ON!!
