Andre 3000 hints at his 18-year-old son Seven’s lyrical prowess during a surprise visit to Kid Kraddick In The Morning while visiting his friend L.A. Reid who was promoting his memoir “Sing to Me.”

“He can actually rap,” 3 Stacks says. “But he don’t want people to know he can rap. He’s actually good.”

The Atlanta musician says he offered some advice with his son, whom he shares with Erykah Badu, to avoid gross comparisons.

“Just put it out,” Andre 3k says. “If people like it then people like it and you can reveal at anytime you want. He might already have songs out that y’all listen to that you don’t even know about.”

Dre says his son helps him to stay cognizant of the latest rap talent currently out and praises a few artists that are on his radar.

Kid Cudi‘s last album Speedin’ Bullet is the best thing that’s came out in a long time,” says the OutKast member. “[Young] Thug is charging up the rap game. Future is charging up the rap game. These are people who I listen to. My kid, he turns me on to everybody new. I listen to what he listens to riding to school.”

The American Crime actor was recently featured on Erykah Badu’s But You Caint Use My Phone cut “Hello” and Kanye West’s “30 Hours” from The Life of Pablo.
