There aren’t many things I want more in Hip-Hop than an Andre 3000 solo album. When and if I’ll ever be blessed with such an item, only Andre and whatever higher power you pray to actually know the answer. Found on DJ Envy and Tapemasters Inc.’s Purple Codeine 25, this track is exactly what you’d expect from 3K: a smooth instrumental, an even smoother hook and Dre’s seemingly effortless flow which he describes as “on some cool shit”. Regardless, just when I come close to accepting the fact that such a release is not possible, something like this leaks and you can color me anxious all over again.
And while we’re at it, another Outkast album wouldn’t be a bad look either. With only one half of UGK here to carry on their legacy, Three 6 Mafia doing whatever it is Three 6 Mafia does nowadays and 8Ball & MJG seemingly dormant, Hip-Hop, not just the South, needs that more than ever.
