OutKast fans may be hearing some new tunes from estranged group member Andre 3000 in the near future as footage of him and hitmaker Mike Will Made It has surfaced online.
While only 13 seconds in length, Three Stacks is shown rocking overalls and in a recording studio.
While Andre 3000 has shown up in music sporadically over the years, you never know when or where he may pop up. Today we get an interesting video from Mike Will Made It, via Instagram, in which we see the producer and the legendary MC in the studio for one reason or another. While no other information was let loose, the video did come with the caption that read "#staytuned". Man, I hope this happens! (Stupid Dope)
The rap veteran recently caught flack from late singer Amy Winehouse's father after contributing to a cover of her "Back to Black" hit.
"I just heard the Andre part of Back to Black. Terrible. He should have let Beyonce do it all. Mitch," he tweeted April 27th. (Mitch Winehouse's Twitter)
Atlanta rapper T.I. recently gave his take on Andre and Big Boi not hooking back up yet.
"It's not whether or not they want to do it, it's whether they feel like it's significant enough to be done. Nobody wants to tarnish their reputation or legacy with a lackluster presentation or poorly received album after having such a decorated past. That's a lot of pressure for cats like that. But I know one thing, all you gotta do is let me know it's coming out and I'm there. That's just me. And I'm gonna make sure my kids listen to it and that they know how important it is to culture. If you are an admirer of music today you need to know what set the stage for all of your favorite artists right here right now to do it." (The Urban Daily)
In early 2012, Andre explained his disinterest in rushing out a reunion LP.
"There's been a lot of talk on the Internet about an OutKast album and I have to say that as of now, there are no plans for another OutKast album. There's a lot of music on the horizon. I've been living off the excitement of new artists. I've been privileged to have these new artists kind of reach out and grab back and say, "Hey, Andre, we want you on this song." So I've been taking those calls and for the last two years, I've been doing collaborations. So these new artists have kind of been keeping me alive. I've just really been feeding off of that and this year I think I'm planning to do a solo project. I don't know when it will come out, but hopefully it'll come out this year. As far as OutKast, I really don't know if or when that will happen." (GQ)
