Hear André 3000 Rap Over Madlib Beats On 'Otis Benjamin' Mashup
Altered Crates brings the two together for an almost 23-minute long mashup.
Titled Otis Benjamin, the almost 23-minute long mashup takes feature lyrics and beats from throughout 3000 and Madlib’s careers, respectively.
“Utilizing feature verses only, the Outkast MC’s signature flow meshes perfectly with Madlib’s eclectic style. Includes appearances by Big Boi, Raekwon, Snoop Dogg, Devin the Dude & Q-Tip,” a blurb for the project reads on YouTube.
During an appearance on Ryan Cameron’s “Uncensored Speak” show on Atlanta radio station MajicATL, the pair clarified that 3000 doesn’t have a new project on the way.
“Lies,” Big Boi said, adding, “Dre, he was probably playing some music but he’s not working on a record. He’s been recording songs for years.”
“He personally hit us and said, ‘Look man, if I was gonna do that, y’all would be the first to know,” Sleepy Brown added.
Despite no new music from Outkast, a mural dedicated to the beloved Atlanta duo has popped up in the city.
A 30-foot-tall mural of the rap duo painted in hyper-realistic black and white has been erected in a back parking lot in the city’s Little Five Points neighborhood. The mural was created by Greensboro-based muralist JEKS.
