In an interview with GQ, Andre 3000 opened up about his fears, career and plans for the future. Most noteworthy throughout the discussion is that he expressed no plans to reunite with Big Boi for an OutKast album anytime soon. Although disappointing, but not a definite no, he indicated his intentions of releasing his long-awaited solo album, which is yet to be titled, before the end of the year.
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. 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.
