In a rare appearance, OutKast’s André 3000 posted on Instagram to support the Black Lives Matter movement. This is the first time he has posted on the social platform since May of 2018.

  1. In his post, the hip-hop legend announced a new line of T-shirts inspired by the iconic jumpsuits he designed for OutKast’s 2014 reunion tour. The shirts, priced at $75, will feature slogans such as “can one rest in peace & violence,” “across cultures, darker people suffer most. why?,” and “breathe.”  


    The limited edition collection will only be available for the next few days via his official website. All of the proceeds will go to the Movement for Black Lives social justice collective.

  2. “Something very important is happening all over the world and it is happening to all of us,” Dré wrote in the post’s caption.

    “For 3 days, a selection of shirts inspired by a collection of my jumpsuits will be sold and 100% of net proceeds will be donated to Movement for Black Lives to aid in their fight to end police brutality & racial injustice against Black people.”

    He continued, “This is only one piece in the war against systemic racism. It takes all of us. BLACK LIVES MATTER…at a minimum.”
