Aquemini, Stankonia, ATLiens, Speakerboxxx/The Love Below–these are the albums we grew to know and love thanks to a pair of cool, trendy, and offsetting rappers that made up the dynamic duo of Outkast! There has never been a time when we were not happy to hear one of their tunes anywhere, you could always feel a little piece of Atlanta with you no matter where you were.

Well that feeling might just end as it seems Andre 3000 has hinted he is retiring from rapping!

Outkast, (l-r) Big Boi & Andre 3000

 In an interview with Complex, the Atlanta icon sat down to discuss his inspirations for the collection and his current attitude towards creating music…

During the conversation, André 3000 said that he’s more motivated by the collaborative processes of acting and fashion design, as opposed to making music. “I work better with other people,” he said. “I clearly see that now. Like, I haven’t put out an album in years, but if Frank Ocean or Travis Scott calls and says, ‘Hey, man, I want you to be a part of this,’ it’s like I have a goal, a target. When I’m on my own, I’m sitting around twiddling my thumbs.”

Despite this realization, he said that the thought of a new album with his oldest collaborator, Big Boi, still doesn’t inspire him to get behind the mic. “It’s really just an excitement thing, and where I am in life,” he explained. “I kind of like not being a part of [rap], now that I’ve done it…Even with Outkast — if we never do another album, I’m totally fine with that. When I was 25, I said I don’t want to be a 30-year-old rapper. I’m 42 now, and I feel more and more that way.”

We really hope Andre is not leaving the game! He is one of rap’s most creative and legendary rappers. Music just got a little less interesting…

New Music Alert! Check Out “The Oracle,” Mase’s Diss Song Against Cam’ron (@Mr_Camron) AND Cam’ron’s Clapback!

It has been awhile since any male rappers had a good beef with one another. Lately it seems the beefs have been between Nicki Minaj and her rivals (or haters if you’re one of her Kenz), Remy Ma, Cardi B, and Lil Kim.

Well two rappers who we consider true blasts from the past, Ma$e and Cam’ron are apparently beefing, with the former releasing a diss track entitled The Oracle

It has been awhile since any male rappers had a good beef with one another. Lately it seems the beefs have been between Nicki Minaj and her rivals (or haters if you’re one of her Kenz), Remy Ma, Cardi B, and Lil Kim.

Well two rappers who we consider true blasts from the past, Ma$e and Cam’ron are apparently beefing, with the former releasing a diss track entitled The Oracle!

We are not sure what events prompted Ma$e to drop the track on Black Friday morning, but check out a few lyrics from the track below:

mase and cam'ron

“Ever since 10 you was a thirst n***a/And I ain’t gone talk about the time you fuck your sister”

“You always play the sucker part/Where was all that Rico shit when you left Jim in Rucker Park?”

“I’m the pretty n***a, wrist litty, sunwear/Diplomat only meaning that you ain’t from here/You had a run here but y’all n***as is done here/All these pretty women and y’all n***as bringing guns here/You way pass the gun line/Every time you talk of me you sound like one time”

“I know you need money I get it/I know your digital sells I know about your digits I know Sony Red don’t want to see your shit distribute/I know it’s crickets so fuck it use my name so they can click it/I made you, I raised you, why would I play you/When you dealing with this power n***a Flex can’t save you”

“Now you can tell Dave East, ASAP Mob whatever you want/The whole hood know I’m the origin”

“Any n***a ever got diplomatic immunity was n***as who ratted/Or wanna snitch on their community”

Listen to the entire song below:

Cam’ron you have got some explaining to do! He definitely had to respond to this as Ma$e has pretty much called him broke and accused of him being a rat–not a good look or reputation to have in the rap world. Cam’ron surprisingly clapped back with an Instagram post:

Cam’ron hasn’t really been one to utter threats publicly or anything like that unless necessary. However, Cam is definitely one of the best at roasting in the rap game. After hearing Mase’s diss track towards him, Cam’Ron took to Instagram to post a picture of Pastor Mase holding a bible in front of the Roxy with the caption, “Good morning to u to betha…lol, Let’s play nigga..” There’s no saying what might end up happening in the beef but it could pretty much be assumed that there’s definitely going to be one or two memorable hip hop beef moments throughout it all. 

Good morning to u to betha…lol, Let's play nigga.. 😘

We would have preferred he released a diss track of his own, but this clap back is hella funny! We’ll keep you posted!

We were surprised to learn Niko is an actual artist in real life with an amazing voice that lures you in like a Siren; hence why we are currently “intoxicated” by Intoxicated. The song is so sultry and alluring.
