Outkast -- Not Breaking Up Today

USA Today offers a nice profile of Outkast, who have been struggling to finish their new album and put out their first movie, all of which comes to fruition on August 25. The duo has seemed like they were ready to split any day now, but USA Today points out their genuine camaraderie and the fact that they've been pulling off these various conflicts for years. All fine until journalist Alan Light makes this comment: "They're very different, with different musical, business and sartorial interests, but they've been the standard-bearers for creativity in hip-hop for 12 years." Sartorial? I'd hate to see a brother break up with his pal over fashion. That ain't right.
