Ever since Andre has taken a sabbatical from hiphop, his has been one of the most awaited comebacks, it has not happened till now and there is nothing concrete from the artist either. As an aside, did you know that Andre was once voted the sexiest vegetarian in the world. Anyway, there are rumors floating around that the artist will return, no word whether it will be to Big Boi or he’ll cut an independent album.
Read this, comes from the horse’s mouth, from a recent interview that Andre gave to GQ – There’s been a lot of talk on the Internet about an OutKast album and I have to say that as of now, there are no plans for another OutKast album.
There’s a lot of music on the horizon. I’ve been living off the excitement of new artists. I’ve been privileged to have these new artists kind of reach out and grab back and say, ‘Hey, Andre, we want you on this song.’ So I’ve been taking those calls and for the last two years, I’ve been doing collaborations.
So these new artists have kind of been keeping me alive. I’ve just really been feeding off of that and this year I think I’m planning to do a solo project. I don’t know when it will come out, but hopefully it’ll come out this year.
As far as OutKast, I really don’t know if or when that will happen. Not wanting to give too much away when questioned about the NOW highly anticipated album, Johnny Vulture stated that the LP would see a return back to “having fun” but from a mature perpective.
The only thing I can really say is I’m going to get back to having fun because that’s what it was all about when I started this in high school—with OutKast—those were like high school dreams. I’m 36 now, so I have grown-man dreams. This album will just be me being myself as normal.
