André 3000 Calls Frank Ocean an 'Icon,' Uncertain About New OutKast Album
André 3000 doesn’t do many interviews, but he sat down with Fuse to raise awareness for prostate cancer as part of Gillette’s “Movember” campaign. Dressed in a beanie and denim jacket, the OutKast rapper spoke about working with T.I. on “Sorry,” being proud of his partner-in-rhyme Big Boi, and collaborating with Frank Ocean on his debut channel ORANGE.
“He said, ‘I just want you to tell a story. Honestly, I don’t care what it is, just tell a story,'” said Three Stacks of the Odd Future singer. “When I got the track [‘Pink Matter’], I just started writing to it. I’m just happy to be a part of that whole movement and his whole movement because he has become a whole ‘nother kind of icon in today’s age. I was just happy to be a part of that album.”
He also said that plans for another OutKast album are up in the air. “We don’t know what the future will be. There could be, I just can’t say right now,” he said, while warning fans not to believe everything they read.
“If we decide to do something, you’ll know about it,” he added. “The Internet is such a misinformation age right now. There’s so much bad stuff that you don’t even know what to believe, so don’t believe anything about OutKast on the Internet until we say it.”
