Shortly after the leak, Boi hit up Twitter to explain Dre's absence.
"Jive Records is trying to block 3 Stacks from being on the album. Boi Stop!!!!"
"They told me my album was a piece of art... And that they didn't understand my music. Now they mad because y'all love it !"
"The Andre 3000 records r on deck..Stay Tuned !!!!!!!!!!!!" (Big Boi's Twitter)
Last March, the rapper said Dre would be featured on three of his album's cuts.
"It's already done," Boi said referring to new Andre 3000 collaborations. "We got three songs on the record, I ain't played that yet, I got to save something to hold it. Dre actually produced a record and we got a record that was produced by Boi-1da and it's me and Stacks, two verses a piece, back to back, just a lyrical manslaughter. Like, who better than the Kast n*gga? Nobody." (DJ Delz TV)
Southern rapper Chamillionaire recently told SOHH that he was interested in seeing Andre make a strong rap comeback.
"One person I really think should come back man is Andre 3000," Cham told SOHH. "I don't know if he's going to but man, the game needs that dude man. For real. Musically, anything, features, I'd be happy with anything. He'll do one feature every ten years. [laughs] Like d*mn man, he came out with that 'Walk It Out' remix and that was ill, he ripped it. And that was it, he kinda fell back again. That's kinda what a lot of the OG's are doing, Eminem is the same way." (SOHH)
Despite Andre's absence, Big Boi recently said there were plans for another OutKast album.
"Yeah...I just like to keep recording, man. In the meanwhile, while we try to piece together the 'Kast record and see which recordswe're gonna use for the 'Kast album, I just been steadily recording records. For this album right here I recorded maybe 30-something, almost 40 records... I'm piecing together the next album too, the follow-up to Lucious Left Foot...Lucious Left Foot, Andre 3000, then the 'Kast record, and then we'll see what's gonna happen after that...Hey man, gotta keep recording. It's all about spreading the love and really saturating the Funk into the system. That's what we specialize in." (Hip Hop DX)
Sir Luscious Left Foot is scheduled to drop Tuesday, July 6th.
