On Monday (July 17), the former Griselda MC posted a clip from a Juan Ep is Life interview he did with Peter Rosenberg and Cipha Sounds two months ago. The Instagram crop shows him pick the OutKast and Fugees alumni as his dream collabs, but “not on the same song.”
“I shoot for them all,” Conway said, publicly asking both icons to hit him back. “Queen Lauryn, my brotha Three Stacks, if you’re listenin’… ”
In the second slide of the same IG post, he shared a snippet from his song “André 3000,” released as part of Conway The Machine Presents: Drumwork The Album.
“I was uninspired for a minute, this brought me back/ I’m an OutKast like Big Boi, but I’m more Three Stacks/ I might retire and play the flute, I’m so bored with rap,” he spits on the track.

During an interview with V-103 in Atlanta, the Run The Jewels rapper said that his previous comments were blown way out of proportion and that Three Stacks did not have an album coming.
“I was stoned out of my mind playing, teasing with y’all,” Mike said. “Y’all done took the joke too seriously. But you know, [Andre 3000’s] always making music. He’s never not making music. So I got a chance to hear a lot of cool stuff… If you want to hear Dre though, I know where you can. It’s this album called Michael that’s out right now. There is Dre, Future, and Killer Mike…”
The clarification came after Mike was asked on Sway In The Morning if André was cooking anything up, to which he replied: “Yeah, I think we fly out in a couple weeks to go listen to it.”
He added that he’d already heard about nine tracks of unreleased music from André 3000, who has yet to release a solo album. His last release was the 2006 OutKast record, Idlewild.
Killer Mike also confirmed in a separate interview that there’s another collaboration between the two of them that features André rapping for about seven minutes.
“Killer Mike played me a record one time with him and André. I’m not even joking — this is one of the greatest Hip Hop records, just musical records I’ve ever heard in my life,” Charlamagne Tha God hyped the track during Killer Mike’s recent visit to The Breakfast Club. “It’s phenomenal. I can’t even describe what y’all doing on this record.”
Killer Mike responded: “There is another Killer Mike and Dre feature and all we gotta do is make this album go No. 1 and make the guys from the label really, really happy and I’ll be back next year… It’s about 12 minutes — seven and five. Stacks rap longer. When you handsome all the girls like you you get to rap longer.”
