(AllHipHop News) Many OutKast fans have been wishing that André 3000 would finally release his own solo project. 3 Stacks supporters got a glimmer of hope when Inglewood rapper Thurz told the Home Grown Radio show an André album was in the works.
Unfortunately, that may not be the case. 3K’s Dungeon Family comrades Big Boi and Sleepy Brown were asked about Thurz’s accidental André 3000 revelation.
“Lies… Dré was probably playing some music, but he’s not working on a record,” OutKast member Big Boi told Ryan Cameron Uncensored Speak. “He’s been recording songs for years. Kinda recording, kinda just stacking up. A structured record? Nah, not yet.”
Sleepy Brown added, “The story is that he was in the studio with Anderson .Paak when Anderson .Paak was working on his thing and he played him some songs to see if he wanted to work on one of them. I guess [Thurz] was in there [and] heard the songs.” Big Boi later said, “Dré is in Philly shooting a TV show [Dispatches from Elsewhere] right now.”
André 3000 did make a guest appearance on Anderson .Paak’s Ventura track “Come Home.” Over the last several years, the enigmatic emcee has also shown up on songs by Kanye West, A Tribe Called Quest, Frank Ocean, Solange, Kid Cudi, Travis Scott, and others.
