Andre 3000 of Outkast is negotiating with the Cartoon
Network to develop his own project for the cable channel.
The rapper is developing an untitled half-hour
cartoon that may be featured on Cartoon Network’s "Adult Swim" program,
a more mature evening telecast.
The eccentric rapper’s own life is reportedly
the inspiration for the cartoon and is expected to be based around his alter
ego, the guitar-playing Johnny Vulture, whom Andre 3000 played in the video
for "Hey Ya."
Both Andre 3000 and Cartoon Network are based
in Atlanta and if the network is satisfied with the final results, executives
are ready to greenlight the series.
Furthermore, Andre 3000, a successful producer
and burgeoning actor, is expected to provide the music for the cartoon.
Veteran rapper Schoolly D. was the first rapper
to be featured on The "Adult Swim" program block. Presently he narrates
and provides the theme music for the cartoon "Aqua Teen Hunger Force."
