Andre 3000 is getting ready to release a solo album! Er, maybe. On Saturday, Stephen G.

But within a few hours, one of Andre 3000’s representatives spoke with Billboard and revealed that a solo album was not necessarily in the works. “Regarding reports of a specific plan to release an album in early 2014,” the rep said, “there is no official confirmation on that report.”
