ANDRE 3000: ON PRINCE, SEX & WHY HE STOPPED BEING VEGAN

 Outkast was formed to change the perception of hip-hop, according to Andre. “When I look at rap videos, it’s pretty much the same video over and over, a bunch of women in swimsuits and the guys rapping about money or jewels. Me and Big Boi wanted to change that.”
 

Andre surmises Outkast’s take on hip-hop like this:

“We’re from the hood, but that’s not where our music stayed.”

One of Andre’s great passions is fashion:

Particularly kilts and antique scarves. He has his own fashion line, Benjamin Bixby.
