Finger crossed! Billboard reports that André 3000 and Big Boi are ready to reunite as Outkast after a long-standing hiatus that began in 2007.

The two have gone on to create very successful solo careers but the pair have recently discussed a reunion for Coachella Music Festival in 2014. The Cali-fest would kick off the duo’s reunion run and would be followed by other festivals.

"One source tells Billboard that there have definitely been "some conversations" about Outkast reuniting, while another says it is "all systems go" for Big Boi and Andre 3000 to end their hiatus next year. A rep for Outkast did not comment for this story, while reps for their current label home, Epic, as well as Coachella organizer Goldenvoice, did not respond to request for comment at press time."

Outkast’s last album, Idlewild, was released in 2006.
