Though fans have been clamoring to hear solo music from Andre 3000, the OutKast rapper has brushed off talk of new music and dismissed rumors of a reunion album with Big Boi. Still, something must be in the works, because he recently spent time in the studio with producer Mike Will Made It, and even revealed that he wanted to hop on the remix of Juicy J’s “Bandz A Make Her Dance.”
Mike Will recently posted a video of himself in the studio with Three Stacks, so when he visited “RapFix Live” on Wednesday (September 11), host Sway Calloway pressed him for some details.
The Atlanta-based producer wouldn’t reveal too many details about their conversations or what they might be working on, but he did share an interesting tidbit.
“I’m a big Andre 3000 fan, so when he called …we talked on the phone and he was telling me like, ’Yo man, I’m a fan of your music,’ and [I had to make sure] ’This is Three Stacks right?” Mike Will explained, dumbfounded that the legendary rapper was a fan of his work.
“He said ’I’m a fan of your music, I’ve been listening to your music and ’Bandz A Make Her Dance’ was my favorite song. I wanted to get on the remix but I wasn’t feeling my verses.”
Naturally, Mike Will still wanted to hear the intended verses for his and Juicy J’s strip club anthem, noting, “They couldn’t have been wack.”
“We had a good convo and then we got in the studio and we worked…well, we just vibed,” he continued. “He played me some stuff, I played him some stuff and he just gave me a lot of game, ’cause he paved the way for us, for everybody out of Atlanta.”
When Goodie Mob visited “RapFix Live” in August, Cee-Lo explained that Three Stacks might simply be nervous about living up to the pressure of releasing new music. “He just said he had a severe case of stage fright and just kind of been away from the game and didn’t know if he could truly live up —: ah, I just feel like I’m talking to much personal stuff,” Cee Lo said at the time. “I hope he don’t mind.”
