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.

Drizzy has signed his first cousin Christopher “Royalty” Graham to OVO.
If you couldn’t tell from the last name, the Memphis-bred rapper is actually blood-related. His father and Drake’s dad, Dennis Graham, are brothers, and it’s safe to say music definitely runs through their genes.
