Future - Benz Friendz Feat. Andre 3000


Andre 3000 - Vibrate

story of my life.

Andre 3000 - She Lives in My Lap Feat. Rosario Dawson

That Outkast performance at Coachella was one of the most disappointing things I’ve ever seen.

What a disgracefully flat crowd that didn’t really understand what/who they were listening to.

I feel bad for 3000. He looked uncomfortable to begin the show. But by the end of the performance, he seemed annoyed and disinterested with the thought like, “oh yeah, this is why I stepped away from music.”

When he asked the crowd, “how many bitches and how many hoes are here?” I don’t think he was just messing around. I felt that he had already lost respect and interest in the audience. He had his back turned to them for “Hey Ya” singing the song with no real passion or energy; in a sense giving them no satisfaction in the only song they probably were expecting to hear.

Big Boi did his best to salvage the crowd and get 3000 to come along, but I just feel like songs like “Elevators” and “Gasoline Dreams” are beyond that audience. They didn’t understand the darkness, the ambiance, and mystique of those songs. There’s a commentary in the lyrics that just does not connect with that sort of “party” crowd.

The crickets when Janelle Monae came out? On and on and on. Garbage crowd.

Andre 3000 - Play the Guitar (Abridged) (Prod. by Salaam Remi)

Silverback Stacks, jumpin’ out the jungle
Blowing tiger stripe bubbles with “Go To Hell” bubblegum
When I was young, a space shuttle got hung
In front of everyone and grandmum 
Tells me to stay humble but do not un-der-stand
One of these mumbles will make ‘em throw up they arms and hands
And I’ll stumble and they won’t know I put on my pants
One leg at a time
Like they do, pay us no mind

But everybody look at why we do it, it takes us more time
Excuse me if I’m no exhibitionist
According to the internet, 3000 got a big old dic-tionary full of words
He must know how to use ‘em
It also says I play the violin and that ain’t true but
You give me six strings and a pick
And I will make a guitar talk, boy, I ain’t gotta say shit
And I encourage any child to pick up some instrument
Cuz if you’re mad at your dad or mum, you can grab it and strum
Eat your cabbage and corn, by the time you’re done
You will finally realize that they meant you no harm
They was tryin’ to save your crazy ass from what’s to come
3000 mothaphucka, Mr. Tell Me Something

- Andre 3000

Outkast - Gasoline Dreams

All of my heros did dope.

Andre 3000 - She Lives in My Lap

Tame Impala - Prototype (Outkast Cover)

Andre 3000 - I Do

Him vow to never utter, “him do,” unless him mean it.

Drake - The Real Her (Andre 3000 Verse)

Andre 3000 - Sixteen

Something tells me we ain’t in Kansas anymore
All that shit that used to be cool ain’t cool anymore

Outkast - Spaghetti Junction

Yes, they can bite but cannot be us
They can come and pick up little slang but cannot see us
You ought to be ashamed trying to fit in my adidas
So run like DMC it’s me…and no don’t got no heater 

- Andre 3000

Outkast - Lookin’ 4 Ya Feat. Sleepy Brown

Said my name repeatedly, repeat in me
Like Tony Toni Toné Tony Tony
I know, I know, I know I said two too many Tony’s
I go, I go, I go I’m not usually a morning…person
But certain skirts then makes me pull back the curtain and let the sun burst in
She’s searchin’ for her Ken, Barbie
Her skin makes my Berlin Wall fall down to the ground
Now to shave, hardly…
A one night stand. Number on nightstand.
She ain’t never gonna leave me hangin’ like an old white man
But she don’t understand that I’m a fan of Steely Dan
And she likes everything that’s on the radio
So I demand she change it. 

- Andre 3000

I’m convinced that if Andre 3000 ever decides to release a solo hip-hop album…

nah…don’t even want to jinx it.
