I think I might cry thug tears man. Andre 3000 made a surprise appearance backstage at the Lil Wayne and T.I. co headlined American Most Wanted tour. I actually saw Stephen G. Hill when he picked up his backstage pass but didn’t even get a chance to say what’s up.

In any case, while backstage apparently the BET exec had a chance to speak with 3 Stacks himself who revealed that he will be in fact dropping his sophomore album, first quarter 2014. Andre only album was released a decade ago on a double disc as Outkast Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, which is certified Diamond by the RIAA.

This is great news considering the tragedy of Andre 3000 losing his mother a few months ago on his birthday. Many (including myself) thought this would be yet another set back in hearing a full length project from the elusive Outkast member but he plans to put out what will be his second solo LP first quarter next year. Let’s see what happens.
