SOHH Whatcha Think: Andre 3000 Explains His Absence From Rap + Rick Ross, Lil Wayne Get Parody Video

Whatup young world? Hope you n*ggas had a restful weekend and sh*t. Anyway, it's me, ya boy Jeezis Peace aka Andre 4000 back like I never left, ready to give you a daily dose of Hip Hop news.
N*ggas never believed me when I said Andre 3000 is lazy. Supertalented. Super great musician. But lazy. Welp, seems like he's finally opened up and explained why he's kept fans like me waiting so long for his solo album, which I have affectionately titled, Andretox.
"I'm actually putting myself on deadlines more than ever. I don't have someone policing that. Even in Outkast there were no police. But now it's just time. I'm at a place now where my deadline is my own self. I'm looking at it like, Okay, I don't want to be like 40 years old and to haven't done this album. And I don't have a sense of time. When people say, Man, we haven't heard from you in like five years, or seen you, to me, it feels like a year. I don't have a good sense of time, but I do know I'm not a spring chicken anymore. I have to get my ideas out before I just let them go away. That's how ideas work. All the songs are written, we all just get them as gifts. And if you don't act upon your ideas they'll go to somebody else. I've seen so many ideas that I just sat on that other people have done years later, and I'm like, Wow, I could have done that. I just didn't do it."(Fader)
Trying to outdo the last verse that I birthed. How many of you remember that 3000 line from back in the day? 3 Stacks is dope and has made a lot of Top 5 Deceased or Breathing. But my question of the day: Is it fair to have 3000 in your top 5 solo artists?
Before you jet, peep this hilarious parody video. Dude does some d*mn good impersonations of some of today's biggest rapper. Enjoy.
