Andre 3000 Discusses Meaning Behind Reunion Tour Jumpsuits
When Andre 3000 and Big Boi reunited on stage for their Outkast 20th Anniversary Tour, fans went berserk at witnessing one of hip-hop’s greatest groups doing what they do best. However, some where left scratching their heads while reading three stacks’ sometimes politically charged (and sometimes nonsensical) jumpsuits.
Well, if you didn’t get a chance to be a part of hip-hop history, no worries. Andre Benjamin’s jumpsuits will be featured at this year’s Art Basel showcase in Miami. The exhibit will be in conjunction with the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). The “Hey Ya” spitter sat down with SCAD president to discuss the meaning behind his 47 jumpsuits, and in true Andre 3000 fashion, it was all just creative fun.
“It was just fun to me,” he said. “And it started with one or two suits. …The response was great. It was to start a conversation and that’s what it has done.”
