Andre 3000 has remained busy despite the fact that we haven’t seen or heard much from him lately. Outside of a few guest appearances on other artist albums, the rapper-actor also known as ‘3 Stacks’ has been pretty low-key.

He recently emerged to talk to about new music, his Benjamin Bixby clothing line and those pesky Outkast album rumors. Here is what he had to say in his own words:

Andre 3000 on resurrected his clothing line:

Yes! But it will just be named Bixby this time. It’s going to be real exciting, I can’t say too much about it, but I can say this year and next year there’s going to be a lot of cool things coming from me fashion-wise. Bixby is one of them. Also musically, sound-wise, and fashion. You’ll see a lot of releases.

Andre 3000 on Outkast reunion and album:

There’s been a lot of talk on the Internet about an OutKast album and I have to say that as of now, there are no plans for another OutKast album. There’s a lot of music on the horizon. I’ve been living off the excitement of new artists. I’ve been privileged to have these new artists kind of reach out and grab back and say, “Hey, Andre, we want you on this song.” So I’ve been taking those calls and for the last two years, I’ve been doing collaborations. So these new artists have kind of been keeping me alive. I’ve just really been feeding off of that and this year I think I’m planning to do a solo project. I don’t know when it will come out, but hopefully it’ll come out this year. As far as OutKast, I really don’t know if or when that will happen.
