Andre 3000 Wants To Drop A Solo Album This Year!

February 24, 2012 · Posted in news · 10 Comments 

I have good news, and I have bad news. Bad news is that we will not be hearing a new OutKast album this year, or anytime soon. Good news is that if we’re lucky enough, we might get a solo album from Andre 3000. At least that’s what he told GQ in a recent interview. Read an excerpt below.

GQ: So does that mean we can expect to hear the album we’ve all be waiting on?
Andre 3000: It depends on which album you’re talking about.

GQ: A new ‘Kast album!
Andre 3000: There’s been a lot of talk on the Internet about an OutKast album and I have to say that as of now, there are no plans for another OutKast album. There’s a lot of music on the horizon. I’ve been living off the excitement of new artists. I’ve been privileged to have these new artists kind of reach out and grab back and say, “Hey, Andre, we want you on this song.” So I’ve been taking those calls and for the last two years, I’ve been doing collaborations. So these new artists have kind of been keeping me alive. I’ve just really been feeding off of that and this year I think I’m planning to do a solo project. I don’t know when it will come out, but hopefully it’ll come out this year. As far as OutKast, I really don’t know if or when that will happen.

3K also talks about Gillette, his clothing line, the “Hollywood Cole” line, and more. Read the full interview here. Continue reading about the album below.

GQ: What’s the new solo album going to be like?
Andre 3000: The only thing I can really say is I’m going to get back to having fun because that’s what it was all about when I started this in high school—with OutKast—those were like high school dreams. I’m 36 now, so I have grown-man dreams. This album will just be me being myself as normal.

GQ: Expectations for your next album couldn’t be higher. What are you most afraid of?
Andre 3000: The biggest fear is me thinking about it too much—and that’s why I’m just trying to catch the energy just like I’ve done before. What you all have heard before, I was not thinking, I was just going on cruise control. I was just going at it like any artist. When you look at the Wayne, when you look at the Kanye… I can tell when an artist is in the zone because they’re not thinking and that’s when you’re at your best. So I’m just hoping, at this point, I don’t let my history get in front of my future. You know what I mean.

    @Curt, u knw what I like big boi don’t get me wrong but old Andre in my opinion raps circles around him…lol don’t hate me for that haha

    Curt Reply:

    @Curt, i don’t think anyone would disagree with that haha. Andre is top 5 of all time for some people. I’m just sayin after hearing sir lucious it made me appreciate big bois role in outkast a lot more

    MosDef Reply:

    @Curt, oh no doubt man. ATLiens is my fave outkast album cause both of them are ill as fuck. Sometimes its hard for me to knw who’s who on the song lol

    Could you imagine a collab album between EMINEM, Nas and Andre 3000 ?

    Curt Reply:

    @Listen To Charlie, I don’t think it would live up to it’s hype. Like Andre and Em’s styles are so different I think it would sound forced. Nas and Em already have a collab song together. Nothing special
