Outkast’s Andre 3000 has said that Gwen Stefani, Snoop Dogg and his musical partner Big Boi may feature in his new animated TV show.
As previously reported, his cartoon ’Class Of 3000’ is set to make its debut in the US on Friday (November 3) on the Cartoon Network.
Speaking about the new music that will feature in the show, Andre 3000 said: “We’ll probably get different artists. So you may have Big Boi stop through the classroom, and he may do a song with the kids, or you may have Gwen Stefani do a song, or Snoop. But they’ll be animated in our style.”
The rapper, who is co–executive producing the programme, said that new music would feature on every episode.
He revealed: “It’s kind of like the episode or the situation dictates when the song’s going to be like, even the instrumentation. So I’m writing from, I guess, a character’s standpoint.”
The star said that it was important to remember who would be watching the show: “Even though the music can go anywhere,” he said, “and the music could be advanced, I have to still remember that these are kids. So I have to write in a certain way that a kid could get it and that the voice actors could come in and kind of mimic what I’m doing.”
Speaking about his character on the show – art teacher Sunny – Andre told The Patriot News that he didn’t see himself rapping forever.
“I always though that rap was a young man’s game. And the older I get I’m like, ‘OK, I don’t want to be 45 years old rapping.’ So I said, ‘Maybe it will be cool if I go back to school and actually be an art teacher.’ Because that was like my love before I started doing music you know, drawing and painting.”
