Music fans have been impatiently waiting for Andre 3000 to drop another album, but according to his longtime friend Cee Lo Green a phobia has held him back from returning to the spotlight.
During an interview with MTV’s “RapFix Live,” Green said severe case of stage fright has delayed the Outkast rapper from releasing any new music.
“He just said he had a severe case of stage fright and just kind of been away from the game and didn’t know if he could truly live up…” he said. “I just feel like I’m talking too much personal stuff.I hope he don’t mind.”
“He’ll always be his worse competition,” Green added. “His worst critic, and maybe he don’t want to live up to what people think he should do. He’s always been exceptional and ahead of his time anyway, so anything he decides to do — next year or the year after that — we’ll still be catching with what’s on his mind.”
The “Forget You” singer went on to say that Andre will return to the game when he’s ready.
“One [thing] that we know about 3000,” he continued, “whenever somebody see him doing something and they run and tell the press, he’ll always say I ain’t doing it.”
There were rumors that Andre 3000 would release another solo project this year, but reps confirmed “no official confirmation” has been set for the upcoming album.
