At least one of four “coming soon” rumors* always runs through rap at least once per month. This month’s early entry comes from the Andre 3000 file, courtesy of Stephen G. Hill.
The BET executive was backstage at a Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz’s “America’s Most Wanted” D.C. stop when he ran into Andre 3K. Per a tweet sent by Hill, the long lost Outkast member will be dropping an album in 2014.
Me: hey what's up? You got the movie coming,right? Andre 3000: yeah…and I got a solo album coming top of the year. Me:*droptofloor*

Sure, that’s two back-to-back months where 3K’s shown up, after he was photographed in the studio with Mike WiLL. But until I get an album in hand, I’m going to chalk this up to a nasty Twitter rumor, sort of like those social networking deaths that Morgan Freeman goes through two to three times per year.
* – The three stories? Eminem’s next album, Jay Electronica’s debut, and Detox, of course.
