Big Boi has announced he's signed a new deal with Epic Records. The Outkast legend confirmed the news via The Huffington Post:

"So I'm back with L.A. Reid and Sylvia Rhone. Got a brand new situation. I signed the deal the day after the first Coachella date, that Saturday. He understands my music. And one thing about L.A. Reid, there are no creative restraints. He trusts my ear and let's me make the music I want to make. We love being in business together. That's my big brother."

Whilst a new solo album is in the works, he said he's "not gonna rush" it due to his commitments with Outkast. However, new music is definitely still on the horizon: "You're definitely going to get some brand new Big Boi material. Two or three singles before the fall."
