Andre 3000 solo coming soon, meanwhile annihilates Gorillaz track

February 27, 2012

Andre 3000 is a bit aloof at the moment (other than showing up on a Gillette commercial, for some reason) but there’s good reason why…he’s in the studio working on a new solo. He resurfaces in an interview in the upcoming issue of GQ, where he discusses his future plans, being a spokesperson for Gillette, and his collaborations with Drake among others. Although he states that we won’t be getting anything from the full OutKast ensemble anytime soon, we might soon get a longplayer from the man who has been absolutely devouring his guest appearances on other people’s tracks.

Speaking of devouring entire tracks, on this track with the Gorillaz and James Murphy (of LCD Soundsystem), commissioned by Converse for their Three Artists series, 3 Stacks goes in several notices beyond HAM. He takes over around the 1:48 mark, shouts out the members of the Geto Boys, continues rhyming doubletime (158 bpm by my count), keeps excellent breath control, and makes a general mockery of everyone. Yes, everyone, even you, because you’ll dance real awkward from this. All jokes aside, and seriously, don’t listen to this track on a full stomach. Serious.
