Andre 3000 x Madlib – “Otis Benjamin 2.0” (MadStacks) [Album]

WHO could have seen this coming? Not a dope mashup project from Altered Crates. That’s just what they do. Meaning who saw this particular combination working on wax (you know what I mean).

Andre 3000 & Madlib perfectly blended. Enjoy!

As the world continues to wait for Andre 3000’s solo album, Altered Crates delivers the next best thing; Otis Benjamin 2.0 – Blending together many of Andre’s standout verses and features, including unreleased acapellas, with the Californian beat-master and mad-genius, Madlib. The Outkast MC’s signature flow meshes perfectly with Madlib’s eclectic style. Includes appearances by Big Boi, Pimp C, Nas, Raekwon, Snoop Dogg, Devin The Dude & Q-Tip.

Anderson .Paak – “Come Home” feat. Andre 3000

This is the collab that will draw most heads to the “Ventura” LP. My opinion. But probably facts by now. In fact, I’m betting you are going to give this a spin just to hear 3 Stacks go in on the feature for Anderson.

Andre 3000 Coming Back To The Big Screen In A Sci-Fi Thriller Called “High Life” (Trailer)

Well. This looks… ominous.

Okay, so don’t try to figure out everything that is going on in this trailer. There is enough meat in what is plain to see: Andre 3000 is back on the big screen (November 7 in France, in 2019 in the U.S.) with a box office hitter like Robert Pattinson (dude from the “Twilight” movies), in a sci-fi thriller that includes a space trip to a black hole.

Yeah, we good. See you next year 3 Stacks.

I know DJ Jaycee to be one of the best mixmasters and turntablists out here. If you know him and/or know about the deejay scene (esp. in Atlanta), I am not telling you anything new.

Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. André 3000’s beloved mother passed in 2013. He dropped this on Mother’s Day.

Erykah Badu – “Hello” feat. Andre 3000


The heat! Erykah and he ex, Andre 3K, can still bring it on a track. Exhibit A: “Hello” is embedded below. Tried to find an active link to the “But You Caint Use My Phone” mixtape on which this appears; but it has been snatched from EVERYWHERE… including iTunes for some reason. Keep an eye/ear open for it though. Worth it.

(Another ex, the “Exhibit C” emcee Jay Electronica, also features on the mixtape. Seems like they all remain cool. Good.)

“I feel ya” And Other Expressions Of Andre 3000 On Exhibit (Video)

When you describe Andre Benjamin as an artist it could mean multiple things. First he is a musician, also a visual artist, an actor and just a cool Southern gentleman. Not to mention Andre is known by many names – Dre, Andre 3000, 3 Stacks to name a few. So when you think about Art Basel it’s not surprising to see Andre getting involved with the yearly Exhibit/Event.

Andre Benjamin has teamed up with  filmmaker Greg Brunkalla (B.F.A., film and television, 2001) and painter Jimmy O’Neal (B.F.A., illustration, 1989) both graduates of SCAD (Savannah College Of Art & Design).  The exhibit is called “I feel ya” where all 47 of 3 Stacks black jumpsuits that he wore during Outkast recent tour.  His fashion statement became part of the live show where phrases like “Make Love Like War” and “Across Cultures Darker People Suffer Most Why?”

The display is accompanied by a short film titled “Trumpets” by Brunkalla and large paintings by O’ Neal.  If you are at Art Basel 2014 you can catch an early glimpse and it will continue to show at Savannah College of Arts & Design (SCAD) University summer 2015. Check out this video that features Paula Wallace president of SCAD talking with Andre 3000 regarding what inspired this fashion statement.

“I feel ya” provokes a socially dynamic conversation about language and context.
