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.”
