(AllHipHop News) Frank Ocean took the time during his Blonded Radio show to heap praise on André 3000.
The OutKast member is often mentioned in the G.O.A.T. debate, but Ocean feels Dre should be at the top of the pyramid of greatest emcees.
“You know when you’re not on the list but you’re still number 1?” asked Ocean. “You’re not top 5 because you’re number 1. You’re not involved in top 5 conversations because you’re number 1. That’s André 3000.”
3 Stacks rarely records music nowadays, but he did appear on both of Ocean’s studio albums – channel ORANGE and Blonde.
While Dre has not released an official solo LP, the Atlanta-bred wordsmith earned platinum plaques for his work with Big Boi and the duo is considered to have one of the best discographies in rap music.
OutKast’s 2003 double album Speakerboxxx/The Love Below became only the second Hip Hop project to win the Grammy for Album Of The Year.
Speakerboxxx/The Love Below has also been certified Diamond by the RIAA with over 11 million units.
