Kid Cudi Pleads With Andre 3000 To Make Another Rap Album To ‘Save Us All’

The Man on the Moon rapper believes “3 Stacks” is the greatest rapper of all time.

Kid Cudi believes that the world would be a better place if Andre 3000 would release a new rap album.

During an episode of “GOAT Talk” on Complex with skateboard legend Tony Hawk, Cudi was asked who was the GOAT rapper and he responded without hesitation that it was the Outkast co-founder.

“He’s just the illest. I would really love to see a rap album from him. I know he’s in a different place [but] I know he can create something that’s just so wild and feels fresh and new,” Cudi said. “He can save us all. Save us all, Dre!”

Cudi also said that OutKast’s Speakerboxxx/The Love Below is his favorite album of all time saying that the double LP was masterful” and was influential in his debut album, Man on the Moon: The End of Day which was released in 2009.

The Cleveland rapper is hoping to collaborate with Andre on his next project. Previously, the two worked together on Cudi’s Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’ album.

“I’m hoping to get André in the studio again soon. Get some flute on the record and get him to spit a bar or two. André, I’ll be knocking on your door pretty soon,” Cudi continued. “I’ve been watching you. I’ve been watching you close.”

Cudi is one of many who long for the day when 3 Stacks will give the world some bars. Although the legendary rapper has attempted to work with producers from various backgrounds, he’s struggled to come up with rhymes that meet his high standards.

Andre 3000 Explains Why He’s Not Currently Rapping

“I’ve worked with some of the newest, freshest, youngest, and old-school producers. I get beats all the time. I try to write all the time,” Andre told the GQ magazine. “Even now people think, Oh, man, he’s just sitting on raps, or he’s just holding these raps hostage.

“I ain’t got no raps like that. It actually feels…sometimes it feels inauthentic for me to rap because I don’t have anything to talk about in that way. I’m 48 years old,” he continued. “And not to say that age is a thing that dictates what you rap about, but in a way it does. And things that happen in my life, like, what are you talking about? ‘I got to go get a colonoscopy.’ What are you rapping about? ‘My eyesight is going bad.’ You can find cool ways to say it, but….”

Whether Andre 3000 will return to producing music as one of the most beloved MCs in hip-hop remains to be seen.  In November, he released his debut solo LP, New Blue Sun, an instrumental album where he plays the flute. It was his first complete studio project in almost 20 years.
