In surprising news of the day, Big Boi (of OutKast) is an obsessive Kate Bush fan. Unsurprisingly, so are many other musicians and writers and celebrities and regular people because Kate Bush is the shit. Even though the Spin article that catalogs Big Boi’s intense love is about three years old, it’s always worth reminding people of the dream musical collab that has yet to happen.

Our friends at VICE had a novel idea. Let's wrangle two awesome musicians, sit them down, and have them talk like real human beings.
