OutKast's Andre 3000: 'I don't know what the future of music holds for me right now'
Rapper admits he has no plans to release any new material
The rapper, who is one-half of OutKast who last made an album in 2006, said he has no plans for a solo album.
He told Rolling Stone:
Things are kind of up in the air with me, and some days, I feel like yeah, I'll do it. Some days, I feel like, I don't. I don't know the future of music right now. I have no idea what I do. I honestly don't.
The rapper added: "I record and I write ideas. I think I'll always do that, for some reason. But I don't know if it will go to another artist or will it be my stuff or will it go to some movie? I don't know. I just kind of keep creating and hopefully, it'll fall into a slot."
Despite not creating any new music of his own, Andre 3000 is set to cover songs by The Beatles and blues legend Muddy Waters in the forthcoming Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is By My Side. He is taking the starring role in the new film, which is currently shooting in Ireland, though is actually set in London.
The film will not feature any music or songs by Hendrix himself, as the late guitarist's estate have not granted permission for them to be used. It is set for release next year.
Meanwhile, his former partner in crime Big Boi's new album 'Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumours', which is the follow-up to his solo debut, 2010's 'Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty' is out on December 1.
