For years, hip hop fans have been asking for at least one more album from both Big Boi and Andre 3000 together. It might be a long time, if ever that those dreams will come true.
Andre 3000 had an exclusive interview with Complex, and he looks to be very comfortable with his life these days, and not yearning to return to the grind of hip hop.
“It’s really just an excitement thing, and where I am in life. I kind of like not being a part of [rap], now that I’ve done it,” he said. “As I get older, I start to see myself move more back from it—the hustle and bustle of putting out an album, the pressure of being in the studio trying to come up with something. Now it’s more like a hobby for me, so I don’t think about it in that way. Even with Outkast — if we never do another album, I’m totally fine with that.”
He later continued.
“When I was 25, I said I don’t want to be a 30-year-old rapper. I’m 42 now, and I feel more and more that way. Do I really want to be 50 years old up there doing that,” he asked. “When I watch other rappers that are my age I commend them, but I just wonder where the inspiration is coming from. At this stage I’m really more focused on what I am going to be doing 10 years from now. And I hope to God it won’t be rapping…”
Wow. Can I speak for hip hop when I say…Please one more!
