Outkast fans waiting for the super duo to drop a new album will have to wait a little, or a lot longer. In an interview with GQ, Andre 3000 says there are no future plans for another Outkast album.
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.
Andre goes on to talk about his frequent collaborations with other artist such as J.Cole and B.o.B.
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.
Although he gives no time frame for when his solo album will drop, the multifaceted rapper does give some insight on what we can expect from his new solo project.
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.
