This may not have been the André 3000 project we wanted… but could it be the project we needed?!

A lot of folks on social media seem to think so after the Outkast MC dropped his debut album, New Blue Sun, on Friday (Nov. 17). Of course, the culture originally hoped that we would get an album of hard beats and amazing bars.

What we got, however, was 80 minutes of the musician playing various flutes and other digital woodwinds.

To be fair, in an interview with GQ, Dre mentioned his struggle with putting out an authentic rap album, especially as a 48-year-old MC.

André 3000’s speaks on him rapping at the age of 48.

“I gotta go get a Colonoscopy… what do you rap about?”

The first track of the album says it all: “I swear, I Really Wanted To Make A ‘Rap’ Album But This Is Literally The Way The Wind Blew Me This Time.”

Although a few are still a bit disappointed that he didn’t deliver any hot verses, the majority are appreciative of seeing this new side of André. Dare we say it, it’s actually quite healing to hear.

Check out some of the reactions below!

Help Stop Hate! Spread Love

Widely disseminated misinformation is extremely harmful and serves as a catalyst for hatred, violence and prejudice of every kind. This is counterproductive to the unification and strengthening of a nation.

ADL, the Anti-Semitism Defense League is dedicated to offering impartial education on issues involving anti-Semitism to help Americans make informed decisions. A not-for-profit public service organization powered by Love, ADL provides free resources that educate society on anti-Semitism and ways to work together to combat the ancient hatred while promoting equality and prosperity for all people.

Basketball star Kyrie Irving captured the media’s attention when he faced allegations of anti-Semitism due to a social media post containing a link to the film, “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America.” Succumbing to external pressure, Irving removed the controversial post and offered a public apology. Nonetheless, upon further examination of the circumstances, it appears that Irving might have been criminally deprived of his rights, and could potentially possess a legal claim against his former employer for violating contractual terms.
