Andre 3000 and Big Boi may sign a new record deal at Sony's Epic Records under new chairman LA Reid.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Reid, who took over as Epic chairman in July also joins Simon Cowell as a judge on Fox's upcoming show "The X Factor", is trying to recruit Outkast in an attempt to remake the once great label.
Outkast and Reid have a long history together, as the veteran record executive signed the legendary duo to their first deal in 1994 while running Laface Records. Reid is reportedly also eying Ciara, another Atlanta-native and LaFace alumn, for an Epic deal. The R&B star recently had a messy working relationship with her former label, Jive.
