Andre 3000: I Didn’t Want To Do Outkast Reunion Tour

It’s no secret Andre 3000 and his Outkast brother Big Boi didn’t seem to be on the same page during a lot of their reunion tour earlier this year. According to Andre Benjamin, he never wanted to take to the stage in the first place.

The Atlanta rapper says he sported 47 custom jumpsuits during this summer’s tour as a way of getting excited .

“Honestly—I didn’t wanna do the tour,” Benjamin said in an interview with The Fader. “I’m like, how am I gonna present these songs? I don’t have nothing new to say.” Benjamin revealed that he came up with the jumpsuits as a way of breathing new life into the performances. “It became a theme where I was more excited about this than the actual show,” he said.

The rapper is doing an exhibit at Art Basel with the jumpsuits on display. “I felt like a sell-out, honestly,” Benjamin said. “So I was like, if I’m in on the joke, I’ll feel cool about it.”

Earlier this year, we caught up with the rapper and asked him if Outkast fans should look forward to new music from the duo. Click the video for his answer.

It’s a new dawn, a new day … DMX is sober!

X has been in a treatment facility since late August and has been doing really well. The rapper opted for rehab instead of house arrest in order to improve his chances of kicking his drug habit and it looks like it may have worked.

Sources tell TMZ, the program is almost complete, but x will probably stay another 30 days since he’s been responding so well. X has even been able to take day trips with a friend to a nearby town.

Congrats to DMX!
