If anybody would know it would be them.
Earlier this week came reports that Andre 3000 might be working on a new album, with Thurz claiming that the Outkast rapper has an album. Now, Big Boi and Sleepy Brown have also addressed the rumor of a new 3 Stack album.
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.
The report of a new Andre album first came about when Los Angeles rapper Thurz made an appearance on Real 92.3 LA’s Home Grown Radio show. Thurz was asked by co-host DJ HED if he has ever been caught off guard or was star-struck by an artist that popped up when he was working with Dr. Dre in the studio.
“3 Stacks came up in there,” Thurz said in response, to which DJ HED then asked him if the Outkast rapper is working on any music.
“He got an album,” Thurz said, before clarifying: “He played a lot of ideas that sounded like an album to me so I’m jumping to conclusions.”
He then went on to detail that 3 Stacks was in the studio to provide a verse for Anderson .Paak’s album Ventura. (He appeared on album-opener “Come Home.”)
“He played some really cool ideas and he’s making music…that’s one of my favorite rappers,” Thurz added.
