"Rap is like a boxer," said André. "No matter how big they are, or were, at a particular time, a person grows older, the slower, I don't care who you are. And I can feel it coming. There is always a new wave of artists, and sometimes I'm like, 'I'm good. I'm going to let the young guys do." And every time you come in and say, 'Hey, we're going to try something, I'm with the help of them. I'm doing more for them than for my own self. I don't have a lot of joy to make music like that—I can get the happiness of nice that I'm working, and to help them, and seeing to be very excited about."
While a mythical album of Outkast or Andre solo project for a long time have been topics of discussion for the thirst of Hip-Hop purists, the Atlanta native shot down any hope of any. In fact, he has no plans to rap in their more than 50 years. Fellow Outkast MC Big Boi, on the other hand, continues to make music and fell Boomiverse in the month of June. Although Andre to reunite with Big Boi for a tour in 2014, for him, is something that is already "done".
