Just hearing Andre's voice is refreshing and brings me back. He's such a creative yet humble dude. One of the best.

Dude is still so humble and down to earth. Can't say I still don't want a fire rap album though.

I saw 3000 in a Whole Foods in Atlanta. He was signing a kid’s sweatshirt when I walked into the isle. I already knew how he felt about being in public. He looked at me… and I nodded and didn’t say a word. The look of relief on his face as he walked away was 100% worth not getting a selfie.

He's really like someone who has gotten to a point in his life where he's at peace with the world. His motivations aren't commercially driven, nor does he feel the pressure to keep doing things to desperately stay culturally relevant. He's making art on his own terms and does so the for the sheer joy of it, and sharing that joy with others. He is levitating with the love for creation in his heart and a smile on his face, and I nothing but my deepest respect for him. My dude has found himself.

"That's life, you want what you want till you don't want it." -André 3000, such a wise statement. I love seeing his evolution as an artist and human being.

Andre 3000 is the epitome of "you don't owe anyone nothing", do what makes you happy to benefit your mental health. Be kind to all and Outkast forever.

He's so comfortable in his own skin and committed to being authentic. Thank you Andre for the reminder that everyday normal life is a gift. And thank you to those behind this beautifully constructed and filmed interview. It felt like an oasis, so calm and refreshing.

He’s so down to earth and humble, it’s lovely to see he managed to blend his art with his life and just be. It’s great he didn’t let the fame get to him, managed to keep his creative freedom. Very inspiring

I have definitely seen Andre 3k in the most random spots in Philly for a stretch, with his flute. This was within the last 3yrs. People would walk by, double take and immediately hop on their phones to call others to let friends know. Small crowds would gather around, but in Philly, strangers respect space so no one would invade his space without being mindful. One time I seen him and he rocked out with a vocalist who had been walking by, a complete stranger who started freestylin over his flute. She was beautiful, had an amazing voice, and they vibed for about 10 mins. Seen him another time just out reading a book in a downtown park. Not at all trying to bring attention to himself, and again Philly did not bother him. He is forever mysterious, unassuming, and definitely an authentic creative

I really appreciated the fact that he didn't release any music all this time because he genuinely had nothing to talk about, it says how much he cares about his art. He is one of few musicians I really appreciate for their authenticity and talent. I'm really excited to listen to his new record.

Andre is one of the rappers who did not go crazy with fame. He looks great and is maturing wonderfully. He has excellent insight into his own future growth.

My mom always says, "Just keep living." You have to live to appreciate this thing called life.
Salute to 3k and Outkast.

Walked past a small kickboxing gym in Japan last night, hear Hey Ya blasting out the doors and see people struggling to focus on kicking as they kept slipping into the beat. Outkast is timeless.

I'm glad Andre realizes that nobody's gonna make him feel bad about who he is and still remains humble at the same time.
