OutKast’s Andre 3000 is reportedly keeping busy in 2016 by clocking in time with musician Kid Cudi and revealing an interest to work with Blink 182 rocker Travis Barker.
According to reports, Barker revealed Three Stacks’ recent habits in a new interview.
Barker mentioned that he ran into Andre 3000 (who embarrassed him by bowing down in honor of the drummer) at the second weekend of Coachella. The OutKast rapper not only suggested they get together and record, but also mentioned that he had been in the studio with Kid Cudi a few months ago and was in California to listen to the tracks. Travis described another time when he hit the studio with Cudi and the MC didn’t even rap, but instead played some mean guitar. (Billboard)
Andre 3000 raised eyebrows after hooking up with comedian Chris Rock last month.
A few months ago, Andre made headlines for working on rap star Kanye West‘s new The Life Of Pablo album.
Sources close to 3000 tell TMZ he landed in L.A. Friday night for a studio session with Kanye to put some finishing touches on “Waves”. He meant to order a single passenger Uber but accidentally got an “Uber Pool” — where one driver picks up multiple people — and another passenger got in with him. After some small talk, Andre and the girl hit it off, even finding out they’d lived in the same place. We’re told the girl didn’t stay long, but what a freakin’ awesome experience. (TMZ)
Earlier this year, 3000 dished on his music likes and co-signed hip-hop artist Kid Cudi‘s latest solo offering.
“I always listen to a lot of jazz, a lot of Thelonious Monk. The new Kid Cudi album [Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven] is awesome to me. That’s kind of like the most recent thing that I think is really great. But other than that I’ve kind of just been working in the studio and listening to what I’m doing.” (Billboard)
