Big Gipp on André 3000: "The bruh got a rap album"

The biggest question ending 2023, and now beginning in 2024, is will André 3000 ever release another Hip-Hop project?

While his flute-centric album, New Blue Sun, was positively received, it left die hard OutKast fans pining for a few new verses from 3 Stacks.

According to Big Gipp of Goodie Mobb, it's not out of the realm of possibility. However, he doesn't see it actually occurring.

In speaking with B High TV, he said:

"I’ma tell you something you don’t know. The bruh got a rap album. Bruh, if he wanted to rap, he got that. Organized Noize could go in they vault and pull out a 3000 album. It’s not about that. It’s about where we are in music right now. Him coming out rapping wasn’t gonna change nothing. It was just him joining what’s going on. Now, him coming out doing this and making this successful, he just broke the whole situation down to where now we can go in another direction."

"At the end of the day, for me, that’s great," he continued. "Because guess what? He can go out here in theaters, people gonna charge $100, $500, $1000 to see him play his flute. Right? He’s showing you another way to take music and grow gracefully as a man and an MC. 'Hey, I ain’t got to depend on rap for the rest of my career.'"
