Andre 3000 Questions His Return To Music

Andre 3000 says that he is "kind of up in the air" about making new music.

With five-plus years since their last project Idlewild, fans have been feverishly anticipating the return of the original ATLiens Outkast. Now, in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the duo's less prolific member Andre 3000 speaks on the possibility of his solo career and a reunion with his partner Big Boi.

Three Stacks explained that he's been wavering in his desire to make music as of late. While he didn't rule out any kind of a return to music either as a solo artist or a group, he said that his focus is more on film these days. Still, he added that his indecision hasn't kept him writing and recording new music, whether it's for other artists or himself.

"Things are kind of up in the air with me, and some days, I feel like yeah, I'll do it," he said. "Some days, I feel like, I don't. I don't know the future of music right now. I have no idea what I do. I honestly don't. I record and I write ideas. I think I'll always do that, for some reason. But I don't know if it will go to another artist or will it be my stuff or will it go to some movie? I don't know. I just kind of keep creating and hopefully, it'll fall into a slot." 

He added, "My whole motivation is, I don't want to mess these people's songs up, more than anything than let me do something great. I try to do great, but it's just a different mind frame now. I don't sit around and rap everyday. I don't."

    It damn sure seems like internal beef between Andre 3000 and Big Boi. Anyway, an Outkast album doesn't matter anymore so I'll just keep rocking new music from Big Boi. Andre 3000 is full of shit!

    Andre bit off Kool Keith with the whole 3000 thing. Niggas that bite don't have the same shelf life as originators do. Check out Dr. Octagon album; Keith was talking that 3000 shit back in 1994. And he addressed this on the "Diesel Truckers" album. This drag queen been exposed.

    so sick of this gay ass clown. wants to be prince can't play the guitar. forget music just do gilette shaving cream ads instead. that would be a legendary move. question whether you wanna make music and show the people what you really want to do. play dress up and sell razors. this man is a joke. a drugged up has been that got burnt up in hollywood cuz he cant act. now hes too big to rap. save it. just come through if drake or chris brown call. avoid big boi at all costs.

It's already been decided about who it is, whatever you choose to go with, it's going to stay your Yung Boss Baby.

    Respect! Dude is thinking outside the box. yeah we all want some new material from dude but his focus is in movies. Aint nothing wrong with that. Look at Cube and all the millions he's made off of writing, acting in movies. We are just being selfish. Let him do what he pleases man.
