Killer Mike says André 3000 is working on a new album

OutKast‘s André 3000 is working on a new album according to Killer Mike.

While speaking to Sway for Sway’s Universe, Killer Mike spoke of his recent collaboration with André 3000 on the track ‘Scientists & Engineers’, which also features Future and appear’s on Killer Mike’s newly released solo album ‘Michael’.

Killer Mike revealed that after showing André 3000 the track, the OutKast rapper “played like nine, 10 joints for us and he said, ‘Well, just pick what you like and do something with it’”.


“Over the past decade, I’ve sent him records for me, Run The Jewels and stuff, and he’d come back like ‘Man, that shit’s hard. I’m just not into rapping right now,’” Killer Mike elaborated. André 3000 reportedly gave Killer Mike two tracks to work with, one of which is 11-minutes long. “You’ll hear that in the future,” Mike added.
