Hip-Hop Rumors: Did Andre 3000 Really Shade Big Boi Over A Gillette Commercial?


Big Boi has been on a publicity run as of late, promoting his upcoming solo album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, which will be in stores next month. In a recent interview with the Village Voice, Big Boi was asked why his Outkast partner in crime, Andre 3000, was not featured on the album, and the answer he gave left a bad taste in the mouth of Outkast fans everywhere. Check out what Big Boi told them below:

“He could’ve been on any song he wanted to. I gave the motherf*cker about five songs, but I guess he was just too busy,” Big Boi said when asked about Laface Records not authorizing an Andre 3000 collaboration. “He said he had to do some Gillette sh*t [room erupts in laughter]. No for real. He said he had some contractual obligations.”

Well, now that the article has been reposted everywhere, Big Boi is taking a few steps back from the comments and in a recent interview with MTV’s Rap Fix, Big Boi is now clarifying that he was only kidding.

“I was being sarcastic and they took it and ran with it. It was a vicious misunderstanding, how my man ain’t gonna be on my album to do a shaving commercial? Get the f— outta here.”

Okay Big Boi, but I must say this before I end this story. I truly believe that inside every joke lies a little bit of the truth. Andre 3000, I’m really going to need you to put that razor and shaving gel down and get with Big Boi for at least one more Outkast album. The game needs it!

Side note – Andre 3000 granted a rare interview with Fuse this week on behalf of Gillette…. and spoke about his collaboration with Frank Ocean on Ocean’s Channel Orange album. Andre must have been really impressed, because he called Ocean an icon. Check out what he said below:

“Frank Ocean, he let me hear the song, he said, ‘I just want you to tell a story. Honestly, I don’t care what it is, just tell a story.’ And when I got the track, I just started writing to it and I was just, I’m just happy to be a part of that whole movement and his whole movement because he has become a whole ‘nother kind of icon in today’s age. So I was just happy to be a part of that album. And so all of these collaborations have been blessings for me, I don’t reach out like, ‘Hey, I want you to do this.’ Drake, Lil Wayne, all those guys, they reach out and say, ‘Let’s do this.’ I just want to do good for them, I don’t want to mess their songs up.”

    Not true shit?

  • ceL

    I hate it when people do this. Aside from the music shit; Andre and Big Boi are like brothers. They were always polar opposites. they came up together and that bond is what made Outkast THAT DAMN GOOD. they dont need people making a mountain out of a molehill. let them do their thing and if they can come together again…we win. if not, the fans can support their solo movements. if they dont have a problem with each other, is it right for everyone to “take a side”?

    • Chris

  • Lamonte Johnson

    I hate when people say shit like “the game needs it” people ain’t known what the game needed since the game started. Hip hop is still a toddler and toddlers pick up the dice and roll them. That’s the game that’s always been played so don’t hype shit like it’s always been some general format of how to do shit. The only format is doing what you feel like doing and people accepting it or not

  • i’mreloaded!

    I would wait outside in line to buy another Outkast cd. My fave group of all time. Gotta cop dat Big Boi because his last album, Chico Dusty, was classic.

  • Oknas

    Who really knows the truth to why 3stacks and Big boi aren’t seeing eye to eye, maybe they were in a relationship and broke up LOL. Anything is possible in this industry, plus they from atl
