André 3000 May Release New Music

It's been awhile since we've heard new solo material from André 3000, but that doesn't mean he hasn't been recording. According to NME, the artist stated while discussing his role on the second season of ABC's American Crime,
"I still get time to think about music. [Shooting TV and film projects] is not so bad – it kind of puts you in the place where you're fiending to do music," ... "I've been holding [back] for a long time, so now I'm really interested in figuring out some type of music to do. I'm always recording. I'd like to put out some kind of music project, but we'll see."
We last heard from Andre on Erykah Badu's “But You Caint Use My Phone" in 2015, and it seems like he's itching to create more. However, there is no word on whether that means audiences will be seeing him reunite with OutKast partner Big Boi, who he put on a number of shows with in 2014.
In this already big year for reunions, it would be a welcome surprise to see the two back together and creating new material. Big Boi's last project was as part of hip-hop trio Big Grams, which saw them release a self-titled EP. Big Grams is also made up of the two members of Phantogram.
