Rapper Andre 3000 recently talked with Fader magazine and clarified his earlier statements about the future of OutKast. In a conversation with GQ, Andre revealed that there were "no plans for another OutKast album." This spark a flurry of rumors that the stankalicious duo has officially disbanded. Not so, says Three Stacks.
Remixing pop tunes by adding some hip-hop flavor -- and a big-name MC or two -- is nothing new. But when it came time to remix 'Sleazy,' the latest single from her 'Cannibal' EP, Kesha wanted to do something bigger and better.
She succeeded, lining up Andre 3000 for the song's original (or "1.0") remix, and then adding Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa and T.I. for the next remix -- which is being referred to as 'Sleazy Remix 2.0 Get Sleazier.' Talking to MTV about the latest version, she says she decided, "Finally it was like, 'OK, that's pretty f---ing gangster ... mission accomplished.'"
Kesha's 'Sleazy' gets even sleazier, courtesy of a dope 'n' raunchy remix where four rappers drop by and offer up their own unique verses. The sole constant is the fat beat and a few lyrics from the original, where Kesha espouses the virtues of being street and ghetto as opposed to being fake and driving fancy cars.
B.o.B has been getting compared to OutKast member Andre 3000 even since he broke onto the scene. B.o.B admitted that Andre 3000 has been a huge influence on his musical endeavors, and now the 'Airplanes' rapper is seizing the opportunity to collaborate with the 'Hey Ya' hitmaker for his forthcoming LP.
Here at PopCrush we miss OutKast. Their last album 2003's 'Speakerboxxx/The Love Below' was a hip-hop tour de force of crunk-out club jams and beautiful love songs. Sadly, the dynamic rap duo haven't appeared together on a song in over two years.
