Andre 3000 Producing New Acts Even Though He "Hates" The Studio

Andre 3000 gave a really revealing interview to GQ magazine about his career, and what he's been up to the past 10 years.

(AllHipHop News) Outkast rapper Andre 3000 has no designs on returning to a rap career anytime soon, but he is planning a re-entry into the music business.

During a lengthy Q&A with GQ, Andre revealed he is sitting on hours and hours worth of unreleased material, that will probably never see the light of day, until he passes away.

Andre revealed a social phobia which required psychological treatment drove him out of the spotlight for over a decade.

But Andre said he has returned to the studio, but not to record himself.

"Actually, I hate going to the studio. So what’s got me going once again is me being excited about other artists," Andre 3000 told GQ. "I’ve been working on producing a few artists. A couple projects."

While most fans are surely anxiously awaiting more details regarding Andre 3000's involvement in the unnamed projects, he sounded rather somber when discussing the prospects of the recordings.

"I don’t have the pulse anymore. Rhythms change every generation," Andre 3000 said. "The intensity and the drums change. And I’m not on the pulse. I can’t pretend."

During the interview, the legendary rapper seemed most excited about the possibility of launching a line of t-shirts dedicated to singer Anita Baker.
