3 Stacks Album, 2014
Suspension of disbelief. However, according to Stephen Hill, president of programming over at BET, this is quite factual. Hill ran into André 3000 backstage of Lil’ Wayne, T.I. and 2 Chainz’s concert in DC this past weekend, who then tweeted his encounter:
Me:hey what’s up? You got the movie coming,right? Andre 3000: yeah…and i got a solo album coming top of the year. Me:*droptofloor*
With little to no other André-2014-album-related news, this comes as a huge surprise and if this proves true, OutKast fans are definitely in for a treat. Especially assuming they’ve wanted new 3000 material since the over 10 year hiatus of Speakerboxxx / The Love Below. Well, solo and consistent material that is since we’ve only been blessed with André’s presence every now and then on random features and guest spots.
However through all the excitement, disappointment swells as news of the rumored OutKast reunion seems less and less likely now. It just seems that creative differences and artistic ventures aren’t meant to be together just yet. Whatever that means.
Anyways, what do you think? Would you be excited to find out that André 3000 has a new album coming out that’s, somewhat, around the corner? It would definitely fuel some fire amongst the age old “best rapper alive” debate.
