Frank Ocean And André 3000 Will Appear On Chance The Rapper’s Debut Album

Since the release of his breakout 2013 mixtape Acid Rap, Chance The Rapper has become something of a low-key star, and he's also become a conundrum, an artist who doesn't seem especially interested in pushing his career to new heights. Since Acid Rap, he's busied himself throwing shards of new songs onto the internet without… More »

Tink – “UFO” (Feat. Timbaland & André 3000)

Timbaland signed Chicago up-and-comer Tink to his label a few months back, and they've been working with some pretty big names so far, including Jay Z, Rick Ross, and André 3000. During a livestream session yesterday, he played her André 3000 collaboration in full. The track is called "UFO" and you can see Timbaland singing… More »

André 3000: “I Really Don’t Actually Get Anything From Performing”

OutKast have spent the summer on a grand reunion tour, playing their hits at an insane number of festivals around the world and generally reminding the world that they are perhaps the greatest rap group that has ever existed.

Watch Little Dragon Cover Kelis & André 3000’s “Millionaire”

Little Dragon covered Kelis and André 3000's collab "Millionaire" for Australian radio station Triple J's Like A Version video series. The Swedish band softened the song up a little bit with their sparkling synths, but kept it largely the same as original.

Watch André 3000 In The Jimi Hendrix Biopic Trailer

The André 3000-starring Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is By My Side is coming out this fall and the official trailer has just been unveiled. While the film doesn't use any actual Hendrix songs because they couldn't get the rights to them from his estate, it does make heavy use some generic Hendrix-like guitar riffs and… More »

Future – “Benz Friends (Watchuola)” (Feat. André 3000)

Honest, the much-anticipated new album from Future, started streaming online a couple of days ago, but that stream had a couple of big omissions. "Never Satisfied," Future's Drake collab, is on the stream, but it's only an abridged version of the song. And more frustratingly, "Benz Friends (Watchuola)," Future's track with the mercurial OutKast enigma… More »

Watch André 3000 Play Jimi Hendrix In A Clip From All Is By My Side

We learned last year that André 3000 would play Jimi Hendrix in the new biopic All Is By My Side. The movie faces an unfortunate problem: Hendrix's estate denied the film the rights to use the man's music. But Hendrix covered a ton of other musicians' songs, and it looks like the movie, which focuse… More »

Speakerboxxx/The Love Below Turns 10

While visiting my alma mater last week, I spent some time working from the back room of a coffee shop, the same room where I used to drag my acoustic guitar on stage for open mic night when I was in college. That room dredges up lots of memories, but none of them are a… More »

The 10 Best OutKast Songs

In roughly the early 1900s, painting dissolved into abstraction and appropriation, and artists working since then have veered away from realism. As modern life splintered and proliferated, popular music rushed to catch up to the visual arts, first with the advances of jazz and then with those of its contemporary offspring, hip hop. While a… More »

Frank Ocean – “Pink Matter (Remix)” (Feat. André 3000 & Big Boi)

Frank Ocean orchestrates an OutKast reunion of sorts with this remix of "Pink Matter," one of Channel Orange's most melancholic tracks. While the song already featured a bleak-toned verse from André 3000, Big Boi hops on here in a bout of 'Kast-fan service. It's not the most stellar collaboration, as it seems like Big Boi… More »

T.I. – “Sorry” (Feat. André 3000)

André 3000 barely ever raps anymore, but he has a rare knack for showing up two or three times a year and melting your entire brain. Case in point: "Sorry," an absolutely gorgeous new six-minute song with T.I., from Tip's new Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head album. It's an excellent song before André eve… More »

Big Boi: Andre “Had To Do Some Gillette Shit”

Outkast were No. 3 in our list of the 20 Albums We've Been Waiting For Forever, and as we wrote about the band back then, "If you've been near a television recently, you'll know that Andre 3000 is too busy shaving his moustache to record a new Outkast album." Seems we weren't alone in our… More »

André 3000 Plays Hendrix, Big Boi Names Album

It's been years since the two members of OutKast got together to record an album, and a reunion doesn't seem to be anywhere on the horizon for the moment, but at least they're both working on things for the moment. The mercurial André 3000, for one, has taken a break from his current gig a… More »

Gorillaz – “DoYaThing” Video (Feat. James Murphy & Andre 3000)

The video for the Converse-sponsored Gorillaz/James Murphy/Andre 3000 single "DoYaThang" debuted today, and it features creepily lifelike CGI versions of the various cartoon Gorillaz, all ambling around their absolutely disgusting hovel of a house. Gorillaz visual guru Jamie Hewlett directs, and the X-faced Andre clone shows up in all sorts of unexpected locations. It's a… More »

Hear The 13 Minute Version Of “DoYaThing”

Earlier this week, we posted a radio rip of "DoYaThing," the new Converse-sponsored Gorillaz/James Murphy/Andre 3000 collab. Despite an on-fire Andre verse, the original version of that track felt a bit lopsided and awkward, like these guys were trying to cram as many ideas as possible into a single track. But talking to Pitchfork yesterday,… More »

Gorillaz – “DoYaThang” (Feat. James Murphy & Andre 3000)

"DoYaThing," the previously-announced blockbuster collaboration from the Gorillaz, James Murphy, and Andre 3000 is now online in radio-rip form, and we've got it streaming below. As promised, Damon Albarn quasi-raps a couple of verses before Andre jumps onto the track and generally rips him to shreds. Also, Murphy sings the chorus in a weirdly squeaky… More »
