andre 3000 interview

Although he’s graced stages across the world on OutKast’s 20th anniversary reunion tour for the best part of the year, André 3000 has remained as reclusive as ever — until now. In a rare and revealing interview with New York Times’ Jon Caramanica, the legendary MC opens up about how the Jimi Hendrix biopic helped him out of his depression, that “horrible” Coachella performance and the advice he received from Prince afterwards, and being a “total dad” to his 16-year-old son, Seven.

Naturally, the conversation touches on the topic of new material, and while 3 Stacks sounds painfully reluctant to properly re-enter the rap game, he leaves us with a glimpse — just a glimpse — of hope: “The biggest thing about the tour is momentum. It’s helpful, because it makes me want to do music.”
