Andre 3000 is making a documentary following the US election battle...
[url=]OUTKAST’s ANDRE 3000 is filming a documentary focusing on the rapper’s change from musician to voter registration activist.
The ’Hey Ya’ star appeared at the recent Democratic National Convention and the Republican National Convention to conduct interviews.
In the currently untitled project, Andre 3000, interviewed John Kerry’s daughters and on Tuesday (August 31), he interviewed President George W Bush’s daughters Jenna and Barbara.
In Jenna’s convention speech to the Republicans, she even mentioned the rap duo and the hit ’Hey Ya’.
She said: “Contrary to what you might read in the papers, our parents are actually kind of cool. They do know the difference between mono and Bono. When we tell them we’re going to see [url=]Outkast, they know it’s a band and not a bunch of misfits. And if we really beg them, they’ll even shake it like a Polaroid picture.”
According to Allhiphop.com, Andre 3000 works with the non-partisan organisation Declare Yourself – founded by TV producer Norman Lear.
The rapper is set to vote for the first time in November.
“Stuff came up. I was out of town, I couldn’t see how my vote would matter. It just wasn’t that important to me,” he said in a May interview with The Atlanta Journal Constitution.
The star, who is excited about casting his first vote, said: “Sometimes entertainers — movie stars and rappers — have even more power than politicians. Sometimes all it takes is one or two people in the public eye to get people to vote.”
