Remember when Andre 3000 stated last year that he was looking to step away from rapping. Well looks like he wasn’t kidding. For Mother’s Day weekend Andre 3000 dropped two tracks (via Soundcloud) debuting a new sound from what fans are familiar with.
Andre made the announcement via Instagram in a post dedicated to his mother.
The first track called “Look Ma No Hands” is a 17 minute long instrumental track featuring musician James Blake and Andre 3000 in an impromtu performance on the clarinet.
The second track, “Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)”, is a jazz centric melody and a different side of Andre as he is singing and playing the clarinet.
”Me and my mother driving to the grocery store. Me riding shotgun with my window rolled down. She smokes cigarettes and gets what she gets by hustling harder. Rollers and a nightgown.”
The track is reminiscent of an classic Elton John song and has got a solid tune to it. Welcome the new Andre 3000! Personally, I’m just glad he is back to making music. The man is a genius.
Since it’s debut, together, the two new tracks have over a million plays on SoundCloud. What are your thoughts on the two new tracks?
