André 3000 Says That Rapping Feels “Inauthentic.”


American rapper André 3000 is finally back on the music scene after 17 years, and fans are somewhat disappointed that he is returning with a new sound.

As we mentioned on the Zee earlier this week, the 48-year-old artiste will be releasing his debut and first solo album titled “New Blue Sun”, which has no vocals, only flute and wind instruments.

In a GQ Magazine cover story, the “Hey Yah” artiste explains why his new album will not feature any rapping, singing, or any of his hip-hop contemporaries.

The opening track on the album, titled “I swear, I Really Wanted To Make A ‘Rap’ Album But This Is Literally The Way The Wind Blew Me This Time,” is perhaps an answer to his fans—you might have to wait a while before you get another rap track from 3000. 

“Rhythms change every generation. The intensity and the drums change,” André 3000 said in the interview. “It’s kinda like watching your uncle dance.”
