My boo Antwan “Big Boi” Patton
and his homie Andre 3000 Benjamin
, aka the legendary duo known OUTKAST
, have been toying with fans for years now as we patiently wait for another classic Outkast album.
Dre recently spoke with GQ about his new “Masters of Style” Gillette sponsorship, and of course the unavoidable question regarding an Outkast reunion was asked.
Here’s what Dre had to say about it:
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. Continue Reading…
There is no “official” video for “Happy Valentine’s Day” but this is about the closest thing to it.
It’s a cute little spoof of Outkast’s Andre 3000’s classic ode to a day dedicated to L.O.V.E.
Whoever did this video really put in work… and I totally revisit this it every year! Dude is like a cross between late 80’s Big Boi and late 90’s Andre 3000… but you’ll have to watch it and judge for yourself.
You may have already seen it, but who cares! Watch it again… Continue Reading…
As if Jay-Z and Andre 3000 weren’t enough, Drake has added a verse to the remix of Young Jeezy‘s club banger “I Do”.
With Jeezy’s gruff voice screaming about all the girls he sees in the club that he might marry, Drake comes along on the remix with a softer approach…
Please put away the cameras… cause we just in the club getting MC hammered
And God forbid we ever trade our wisdom for the glamour… And I know I’m just a boy, that a woman could make a man of…

No one can deny that Andre 3000
has a style of his own.
Dre’s always has that ‘something’ that gives him a leg up on fashion. It doesn’t matter if he’s rocking a turban, “A”town fitted or a lil raspberry beret, he’s still got the style game on lock.
And it doesn’t go unnoticed. Mr. Benjamin was recently called a “Master of Style” by Gillette and is featured in their recent marketing campaign for their new razor.?
In a promo clip for the company, Dre speaks on Style and what it means to him, stating:
Style is taking what you have… kinda what you’re given and playing with it. That’s what style is.
It’s just kinda finding what’s in you and pulling it out.? It’s something that you have that nobody else has and you kind of just have to love it… nurture it… and say ‘this is me and I’m just gonna blast it out to the world’.
Dre also goes on to answer a few other questions about style and explains why grooming is so important.

As I stated in my mini review the other day, Jeezy has several features on the song, including Ne-Yo, Jadakiss, Jay-Z, Andre 3000 (and the list goes on).
Jezzy’s camp strategically chose “I Do” featuring Jay-Z and Andre 3000, as his first single and it’s been buzzing every since.
If you haven’t heard it yet, listen to “I Do” and share your thoughts… Continue Reading…
Lloyd’s single “Dedication to My Ex” is one of my favorite songs right now and he recently joined forces with YouTube sensation Keenan Cahill for an impromptu bedroom duet of the song.
I would love to say it’s my fav because of Lloyd’s sexy vocals, but unfortunately, it’s Andre’ 3000’s verse that hooked me to the song:
You were perfect before you went on a diet/You was way thicker, you think I don?t remember? Shit…
Someone actually said that to me once and I was like, ‘Boi Bye. You just have a fat girl fetish’…. but that’s a post for another day.
I love Lloyd… lord knows I do, but Youtube sensation Keenan Cahill totally stole the show in this video… especially when he lip-synced Andre 3000’s verse!
Keenan and Fiddy was hilarious but an ANDRE 3000 appearance??? That would blow Keenan’s YouTube into the stratosphere!!
Watch Lloyd’s hilarious “Dedication to My Ex” duet with Keenan… Continue Reading…
