Andre 3000 talks Erykah Badu? Andre 3000 is considered one of today’s most respected lyricist, and he’s also one half of one of the best Hip Hop groups of all time. But many have always suspected that it was his past romance with Erykah Badu that made him switch up his style as an artist and even fashion wise.
But in a new interview with the New York Times, Three Stacks says that’s not completely true.
When asked how portraying Jimi Hendrix in the upcoming biopic opened him up as an artist, he says:
“It’s funny, the parallels [to me]. People like to joke about [his former girlfriend] Erykah Badu, the mother of my child: “Oh, you completely changed.” I was on my path before I even met Erykah. But one thing I can say. I’m singing around the house, and Erykah’s like: “That sounds great. Why you not doing it?”
lol you and that word!!!! 🙂
Yeah, whatever 3 Stacks. We all know Ms. Badu laid it on him and changed him forever. lol!
I still think she changed him. But most men are too prideful to admit it. Love 3000 though.
He can get it.
You’re so horny. LOL.
I thought they were so cute together. Oh well. I’m glad they are still on good terms.
He is trying to play coy lol but we know Badu put it on him so good changed his entire way of thinking.
Didn’t Common say that “Badu Box” is majic though? I guess it takes men places they didn’t even know they wanted to go. Lol!
She really messed up his head tho.
You ain’t got to lie to kick it…
He’s a lie. Erykah put the same spell on him she does on every man she meets! LOL! That’s why they say in the industry to not look her in those pretty eyes of her. She has mad game and I love the effect she has on men.
lol yeah she needs to teach me some things!
I think it’s cool she encouraged him to try something new. His contribution to Speakerboxxx/The Love Below is a classic. Love me some Outkast.
Erykah knows how to make these men fall in love. I can’t even hate.
I have the biggest crush on this man.
I just want Erykah to teach me some techniques so I can have these men out here on lock too.
