Yesterday, Big Boi sent the hip hop rumor mill into overdrive when the rapper said his Outkast partner Andre 3000 didnt appear on his new solo album because 'Dre was too busy with "contractual obligations" to Gillette razors. All sorts of speculation took place. Was this the end of Outkast? Is there irrepairable beef between the duo? Had Andre completely sold out?

Thankfully, none of that's the case. After the story went viral, Big Boi clarified in a Tweet. 

The Gillete Statement was me being Sarcastic, man y'all slow as hell, No Beef between me and Stacks. No More Outkast ?'s will be answered

Phew. But, alas, it's not all good news. As we learned in a Fuse Exclusive Interview with Andre 3000 yesterday, there's no guarantee or schedule for a new Outkast album. "We don't know what the future will be... If we decide to do something, you'll know about it," Andre said.

Big Boi's new solo album, the appropriately titled Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, is out December 11.
