Big Boi Says Andre 3000 Isn't On His New Album Because "He Had To Do Some Gillette S**t"

With the status of a new Outkast album still up in the air, fans of the iconic Atlanta duo were hoping to get a taste of what that album may sound like thanks to an Andre 3000 feature on Big Boi’s upcoming Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors solo album, but when the tracklist for the project was released it noticeably lacked any Andre 3000 features.

During his interview with The Village Voice, Big Boi revealed that his fellow ‘Kast member could have been on any record but “contractual obligations” kept the rapper from appearing on any songs.

“He could've been on any song he wanted to. I gave the motherfucker about five songs, but I guess he was just too busy,” Big Boi explained. “He said he had to do some Gillette shit. No for real. He said he had some contractual obligations.”

Big Boi spoke on yet another album mystery when he shared the details of why Swedish band Little Dragon was replaced by singer Kelly Rowland on the album version of his record “Mama Told Me.” It turns out that label issues were to blame for the songs last minute replacement.

“Well they left their original label and signed to Universal so it was like bad blood between Universal and Peace Frog,” said the rapper. “So when it came time to negotiate clearance it didn't go so well. But they're still on the album and Kelly Rowland is just singing the lyrics Yukimi wrote.”

Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors will be released on December 11 and will serve as Big Boi’s second solo album.

    so he can drop a 40 bar verse for ross but he cant do a 16 for sir luscious left foot

    this shit is deeper than rap

    He cant do it for contract reasons man.

    No. That shit got resolved. When Big said contract reasons he's talking about Dre's obligations for Gilette and the biopic, not label issues. That's why he said he gave him 5 songs to do. Andre's just a bitch. We gotta accept it.

    It's crazy because if Andre wanted to do an Outkast album Big would adapt to any style or approach Dre wants to take because he's versatile like that so I'm not sure where he's coming from with this "mature" shit. Yet he has time to get on records with Drake and Ross that Big woulda murdered. Shit is retarded.

    That Lookin 4 Ya song that was supposed to be on Leftfoot was the best shit Dre was on since that Devin the Dude record in 2007. They will always have chemistry.
