Its definitely that time of the year where all the soon to be graduates post their college acceptance letters. Erykah Badu took to her Twitter to congratulate her and Andre 300’s son Seven on his college acceptance.
Idk man…he is a comedian. Chris Rock had the gram in a frenzy last night when posted a pic with Andre 3000 and other celebs with the caption reading he was “hard at work” on the new Andre 300 album. Whatchu think?? Hit the jump!
Last night, a tribute was held at the legendary Apollo Theater in honor of A Tribe Called Quest’s Phife Dawg, who we lost last week at the age of 45. SO many powerful people came out to pay tribute to his legacy, including Andre 3000 – who revealed that once upon a time, there were talks of a joint ATCQ x Outkast album. IMAGINE THE GEMS?! “About a year or two ago maybe, we were talking about doing a Tribe Called Quest and OutKast album,” 3 Stacks said, explaining that “personal issues” then got in the way. “Please people, don’t let the time go by. That’s one of the biggest things that I regret now. For whatever reason we didn’t do it, it was on our plate and we just… let it go.” Kanye West also spoke, jokingly noting, “Anything I ever did wrong, blame Tip and Phife ‘cause ya’ll raised me.” Also in attendance were Busta Rhymes, KRS-One, Queen Latifah, LL Cool J, Lauryn Hill and more. Just truly goes to show Phife’s influence on the world, huh? What a beautiful thing. Rest in beats!
For one Andre 3000 fan, dreams turned into reality real quick. Andre picked up a random girl in a Uber and took her along with him to the #WAVES studio session . Just from the pictures of the session, we see that that night was definitely one to remember.
Big Boi revealed today that OutKast were invited to perform at a Super Bowl Halftime Show, but turned down the offer because André 3000 refused to shorten any of the group’s songs to fit the time slot. Hit the jump to see why.
We’ll it’s not exactly what we were hoping for from Andre 3000, but we’ll take what we can get. It has been reported that the Outkast rapper is heading to the small screen and will co-star on ABC’s series ‘American Crime.’ Read more below.
Andre 3000 of Outkast recently had a sit-down with SCAD president and founder Paula Wallace to chop it up about the 20 different customized jumpsuits he created for the “i feel ya: SCAD + André 3000 Benjamin” exhibit that debuted on December 4th at the Design Miami Collector’s Breakfast. Each jumpsuit, which is designed for all 20 stops of Outkast’s upcoming tour, features a different meaningful phrase on the front across the chest area of the suit. The jumpsuits made their big debut via the “i feel ya” exhibition which were on display in Miami this past week for Art Basel at Mana Miami Wynwood from December 3rd-14th. Andre explains to Wallace that the phrases are his way of “saying something new as an artist” while performing songs he had written over the past few decades to now.
