Fans have been waiting very patiently for André 3000 to release his solo album since, well, forever. But now there’s an inkling that Three Stacks may have a new album done.
In an interview with Real 92.3’s Home Grown Radio on Friday (Sept. 13), rapper Thurz talked about working with Dr. Dre in the studio. During the conversation, when asked if there’s been an artist that made him star-struck while making music in the studio, Thurz mentioned Andre 3000.
“Is he doing music?” asked the show’s co-host DJ HED. “He’s got an album,” Thurz
After realizing that he may have let the cat out the bag, Thurz quickly tried to add some context to his comment. “He played a lot of ideas that sound like an album to me so I’m just jumping to conclusions,” he said. “He played a lot of cool ideas…yeah, he’s making music. He’s like one of my favorite rappers.”
While it’s good to hear that Three Stacks is sitting on an album, we still don’t know if he will ever release a full-length project anytime soon.
In the meantime, if you are lucky, you could catch Andre 3K playing the flute on the streets of Philadelphia. The OutKast member is currently starring in the AMC’s series Dispatches From Elsewhere, which is filming in Philly. Andre’s role hasn’t been revealed but the 10-episode series is about a “group of people who stumble onto a peculiar puzzle that hides behind everyday life and discover an ever-deepening mystery.”
There’s no official word on when Dispatches From Elsewhere will premiere on AMC.
