*Outkast’s Big Boi and André 3000 reunited in their Georgia hometown on Saturday to celebrate the high school graduation of Big Boi’s son Andre “Bamboo” Patton II on Saturday (May 12).

The proud papa posted numerous pics and footage from the occasion, including some of himself alongside his son and André 3000, a.k.a Andre Benjamin.

“Thank you Jesus !” Big Boi captioned the video. “My Baby Boy just Graduated with Honors !!! Antwan Andre’ Patton II ‘Bamboo’ #PattonBoys @woodwardacademy Class of 2018 #WithHonors #NextStopCollege.”

Meanwhile, the latest Andre 3000 sighting comes along with new music from the rapper released on Mother’s Day (May 13) in tribute to his mom.

The new tracks surfaced along with handwritten notes and sentimental material, including texts from his mother and snapshots of the two of them beaming at what appears to be an elementary school graduation ceremony.

“Look Ma No Hands,” a 17-minute, jazz-infused composition, features James Blake on piano and Benjamin himself on the clarinet.

A photo of handwritten lyrics for “Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)” is met with a profound caption from the musician, who reflected on the holiday and the inspiration behind the song.

“I’m sure all the cards, dinners, flowers and last minute gifts are appreciated but I’ve learned the best gift a parent could get is to simply know their child is ok,” he writes via Instagram.

Listen to “Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)” and “Look Ma No Hands” below.
