Here’s the scenario: music impresario (record executive, musician, songwriter, record producer, and chairman and CEO of Epic Records) L.A. Reid recently released a new book, Sing To Me: My Story of Making Music, Finding Magic, and Searching for Who’s Next, and as such he’s run the gamut of the press and promo junket. The other day Reid stopped by DISH Nation’s Kidd Kraddick Morning Show for an interview, and lo and behold the Rap Game Where’s Waldo? — one André Lauren Benjamin — popped up out of the blue and joined in on the conversation.
The conversation swiftly shifting to him, André 3000 — who was visiting his son — would speak on his son’s own burgeoning musical talent, praises Future, Young Thug, and KiD CuDi’s Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven, and much more.
André also speaks on the art of freestyling (he admits that he’s not a good freestyler, but a better writer), and his reluctance to join social media (he doesn’t own any account, although he believes he needs it and may one day sign up).
