After answering a question from Fat Joe (the Gangster) during his time on RapFix Live yesterday alongside his Goodie Mob comrades, Cee-Lo speaks on Andre 3000’s rumored return.
He just said he had a severe case of stage fright and just kind of been away from the game and didn’t know if he could truly live up — ah, I just feel like I’m talking to much personal stuff. I hope he don’t mind.
He just said he was bothered by this bar that had been set and maybe he wants to do something different, and he’ll always be his worse competition, his worse critic and maybe he don’t want to live up to what people think he should do. He’s always been exceptional and ahead of his time anyway, so anything he decides to do, next year or the year after that, we’ll still be catching with what’s on his mind.
Earlier this week, the blogosphere caught fire when BET’s Stephen Hill said 3 Stacks told him he had an album dropping early 2014. Since then, a rep for Dre wouldn’t confirm the info with Billboard, leaving long-time fans down and out once again. Not all hope is lost though, as Big Gipp chimed in and said that’s just how Andre 3000 does things. Whenever the press says something, Dre will deny everything… wanting to keep the element of surprise up his sleeve.
Hope is still alive.
