André Lauren Benjamin, best known as André 3000, is one of the most eclectic and versatile entertainers to grace our presence. The Grammy-winning rapper has been on a musical sabbatical for quite some time now, and it’s unclear if he will ever return to the music scene. If he doesn’t, we can be grateful that he gave us enough content to last a lifetime, including six Outkast albums, a Dungeon Family compilation, a Cartoon Network TV show, and a host of magical featured verses on other artists’ projects.
“I haven’t been making much music, man. My focus is not there. My confidence is not there,” André shared with Rick Rubin in 2019 on his Broken Record Podcast. “I tinker a lot. I’ll just go to a piano and sit my iPhone down and just record what I’m doing. Move my fingers around, and whatever happens, but I haven’t been motivated to do a serious project. I’d like to, but it’s just not coming. In my own self, I’m trying to figure out where do I sit? I don’t even know what I am, and maybe I’m nothing. Maybe I’m not supposed to be anything. Maybe my history is kind of handicapping in a way.”
Let’s be clear! André is an originator, a risk-taker, a kind, gentle soul, so while he continues to work on his creative art form and mental mindset, Move Incredible will continue to celebrate his contributions to the arts.
With musical features for artists like Beyonce, Young Jeezy, and John Legend, and UGK, we’ve selected ten of his verses that rings in the eardrum.
