"…if we never do another album, I’m totally fine with that…" Andre 3000 Speaks On Possible Retirement!

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!

 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…

ICYMI! LOGO (@LogoTV) Releases “Noah’s ARC” on YouTube; Reboot Rumors Swirl!

It is hard to believe it has been almost fifteen years since Noah’s ARC debuted on LOGO and we have to say it is was love at “first watch.” The epic love story between Noah (Darryl Stephens), and his seemingly straight, boyfriend, Wade (Jensen Atwood), opened new avenues for gay storytelling and inspired masses of gay films, projects, and marketing. We dare say Moonlight owes its success, in part, to the doors this series opened. LOGO recently dropped full episodes of the series on YouTube and reboot rumors are swirling!

Jensen Atwood and Darryl Stephens as “Noah and Wade”

Both seasons of Noah’s ARC are currently running via LOGO’s YouTube, prompting many to wonder if the network is rebooting the series. The series’ cancellation in 2006 was highly controversial as it was easily the network’s flagship series and its most highly rated one. What is interesting is that LOGO chose to drop the series on YouTube, which has become prime real estate for the web series we know and love. Perhaps this is the new format the series could be picked back up on. However, if we are talking reboots we either want a complete reboot of the series with a new set of guys as Noah, Alex, Ricky, and Chance; or a continuation of the original cast, updating where they are in life nearly fifteen years later.

We have to say we are extremely happy to see Toy Story 4 on the horizon. We really wish it was a weekly series–wishful thinking, we know. Still, we love the trailer and this may very well be their biggest adventure yet.

Annie Potts as “Bo Peep”

The film seems to run off the same motif of girl power as so many films have over the last couple of years with the return of Bo Peep SAVING Woody no less. We often wondered what happened to her between the second and third Toy Story films. Fanfare alleged she was either broken by Andy’s (the toys’ former owner) sister or simply given away. The trailer, however, alludes she was lost and seems to be thriving, however.

Toy Story 4 hits theaters nationwide this summer on June 21, 2019!
