Andre 3000 recently sat down with Gayle King and revealed why he hasn’t participated in any hip-hop 50 celebrations and confirmed a rap album isn’t a priority.

One of the most surprising things to happen this year was Andre 3000 unexpectedly blessing us with new music as he released his instrumental album New Blue Sun with all the flute sounds we didn’t know we needed. Now 3 Stacks is also doing interviews and opening up about his confidence struggles when creating Hip-Hop music.

According to VIBE,  3000 detailed to Gayle King on CBS Mornings why he’s been absent from this year’s ongoing Hip-Hop 50 celebrations.

“I wouldn’t want to be — I’m doing it just because I’m trying to meet an expectation,” he told Gayle King of his reasoning behind skipping out on appearing for any tribute performances. “I didn’t get into OutKast for that, you know.”

He also once again addressed his fans’ ongoing requests for a rap album. The rapper told the journalist that his mood and hesitation are still at an all-time high when it comes to making an album that features him spitting bars.

“When people ask me about a rap album, ‘Man, I would love a rap album,’ I’m with you,” the 48-year-old continued “But it’s like, I want to be with you when I’m really on it… I don’t sit and try to rap every day like when I was younger, and that’s all I did when I was younger. I miss those times a lot, but it’s like life changes. Life moves on.”


At this point, it’s time to give up hope for an Andre 3000 rap album, If we’re lucky this artist will at least stay around and keep blessing us with these interviews.
