In one of the biggest moves in music today, legendary rap-hip-hop duo Outkast reunited at the Coachella music festival Friday night.
Despite the huge buildup of anticipation, many have mixed or disappointed feelings about the show. Some blame it on rough edges from not performing together for almost 10 years, while other blame the young crowd who seem to lack an appreciation for the group’s entire music catalogue.
Whatever it was, Twitter made sure to comment on every aspect of the reunion.
We’re pretty sure this is exactly what Snoop Dogg would say.
(In my Snoop Dogg voice) West Coast ain’t love forOutkast?

We’re also sure that more than a few people shared JanelleMonae’s excitement.
But not everyone felt that way.
Including, apparently, Andre 3000 himself.
3000 looks like he’s gonna denounce hip hop, flip off the record label, drop-mic and exit the stage forever. <ahref=”https://twitter.com/search?q=%23OutkastReunion&src=hash”>#OutkastReunion

But maybe he just needs to hug it out.
Andre 3000 ended the Outkast set by saying “I know it’s beenkinda weird but thanks for coming out.” He just needs a hug.

There’s also the issue of the highly hipster-fied crowd, who probably don’t know anything about Outkast besides the 2003 hit, “Hey Ya!”
“Hey Ya” is trending. This means WhiteOutkast fans are going to riot and burn down a Cracker Barrel if they don’t hear it tonight. — Not Bill Walton (@NotBillWalton) April 12, 2014
Half of the music industry was backstage and half the cast of Walking Dead was in audience. <ahref=”https://twitter.com/search?q=%23OutkastReunion&src=hash”>#OutkastReunion#Coachella2014 — Gene Dexter (@GeneDexter) April 12, 2014
Despite the lackluster crowd, we can be sure the impending festival reunion tour will cater to our wildest dreams.
Even though this crowd is extremely disappointing, at leastOutKast still have their legendary chemistry on the stage. #outkastreunion
