Andre 3000 Negotiating Series With Cartoon Network

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."
