André 3000 for Billboard Magazine[October 2014]. On new music,if he has beef with Big Boi + why he hasn’t said anything about Michael Brown and the situation with the police brutality against black people in Ferguson: On a new Outkast album: “There are no plans to do [an Outkast album]. It’s not like some people think: ‘They’re about to drop this album!’ We don’t have, like, one song,” Benjamin says. “There’s no trickery or nothing like that.”On retiring from rap: "To be clear, there’s no retirement.” And he’s not in conflict with Big Boi: "It’s kind of like growing up in a house with your brother, people expecting y’all to live in the same room and have bunk beds forever,” says Benjamin. “And people try to read into it and say people are beefing. But it’s nothing like that, man. Big Boi will always be my brother and a really important part of my life."On the killing of Ferguson teen Michael Brown: "Honestly, I don’t have a big urge to voice [my feelings]," he says. "But I do feel kind of guilty sometimes. Like when the whole Ferguson thing went down, we were actually in England, and buddies were telling me about it, like, ‘Aw, man, it’s horrible here.’ But I didn’t feel it; I only heard about it. So I felt like, ‘Am I out of touch?’" Read more…
