OutKast's Andre 3000 is flexing his acting muscle. The hip-hop veteran has landed a new role in an upcoming sci-fi movie.
According to reports, Three Stacks is expected to star in an upcoming flick called High Life.
Juliette Binoche and André Benjamin have joined the cast of Claire Denis' "High Life," Variety has learned. The film revolves around convicts who reduce their time behind bars in exchange for embarking on a dangerous mission to a black hole. Robert Pattinson and Mia Goth were already announced as star rig in the film. (Variety)
Earlier this summer, Andre talked about his disinterest in forcing out new music.
"It's really just an excitement thing, and where I am in life. I kind of like not being a part of [rap], now that I've done it. As I get older, I start to see myself move more back from it-the hustle and bustle of putting out an album, the pressure of being in the studio trying to come up with something. Now it's more like a hobby for me, so I don't think about it in that way. Even with Outkast - if we never do another album, I'm totally fine with that." (Complex)
Andre also discussed getting older and not wanting to rap into his senior years.
"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. Do I really want to be 50 years old up there doing that? When I watch other rappers that are my age I commend them, but I just wonder where the inspiration is coming from. At this stage I'm really more focused on what I am going to be doing 10 years from now. And I hope to God it won't be rapping... Rapping is like being a boxer. No matter how great you are or were at a certain time, the older you get, the slower you get-I don't care who you are. And I can feel that coming on. There's always a new wave of artists, and sometimes I'm just like, 'I'm good. I'll let the young guys do it.' And whenever they reach out and say, 'Hey, let's try something,' I'm with helping them. I'm doing it more for them than for my own self." (Complex)
In June, rap veteran Nas shared a vintage pic of Andre 3000, JAY-Z, Ludacris, Jeezy and Rick Ross.
