Andre 3000, in my view, has been one of the world's more underrated rappers since being cast in the shadow, to an extent, of his OutKast partner Big Boi. Even lately, it seems as if he's better known for being in Gillette ads than for releasing one of the best albums of the 2000s in "The Love Below", half of an OutKast double-album released alongside Big Boi's "Speakerboxx" (Big Boi, similarly, can't seem to get any love from the record industry himself, but that's another post for another day).
And speaking of that partnership, Andre references it and apologizes to his rap partner for skipping out on him the last few years to chase other interests around, thus reigniting my hopes for a new OutKast release.
The rest of the tune is quality as well, though the hook is a bit grating, in my opinion. Either way, it's well worth a listen just to hear Andre back on the mic (other collaborations over the past few years notwithstanding, of course).
