    OP tries to invalidate 3000 by proclaiming white people love him like Black people don't to direct the narrative.

    We got some lame ass fake militants on this forum.

    Exactly :mjlol: only on the coli, I've heard this silly shyt that Black ppl don't fuk with Wu-Tang or Andre which would be like saying Black ppl don't fuk with Outkast either.

    Nikkas be saying anything on here and expose themselves for being culturally out of touch:mjlol:

    The way yall talk, one would think his post outkast work would sound like a some murder, murder, kill, kill shyt instead of a natural progression :mjlol:

    It's utterly ridiculous.

    I like both artists as they bring something different but also worked extremely well on songs together.

    Big Boi's solo albums are also damn good and his also as 'weird' as 3K you can tell a lot of folks have not been listening

    Yea in real life Big Boi was a "A" student from a two parent household that listened to Kate Bush and alt rock Hiero and Andre was a high school drop out from deep off in the hood, single mom. Andre was always introduced as the poet and Big Boi was the playa, of course the "poets" music aged better. I dont see how folks can hate on 3 stacks, he stays out of the way and is respectful as shyt of the new kids

    Return of the gangsta, thanks ta'
    Them nikkas who get the wrong impression of expression
    Then the question is, "Big Boi what's up with Andre?
    Is he in a cult? Is he on drugs? Is he gay?
    When y'all gon' break up? When y'all gon' wake up?"
    nikka, I'm feelin' better than ever
    What's wrong with you, you?

    Get down
    -Andre 3000, Return of the "G"

    :wow: Andre the Prophet

    I think he's saying a lot of these "new Blacks" want to view themselves as an Andre instead of a "regular" Big Boi. Thereby distinguishing themselves and separating themselves from the Black majority.

    To me, he's directing that statement at the Root, Blavity, and Very Smart Brotha types he has to deal with on twitter.

    Nah. That happened with Ms Jackson/So Fresh, So Clean.

    There's even an argument that it happened even earlier with Rosa Parks, but I'd say that's more niche.

    Bro what is this?:mjlol: Big Boi is a father out here going to Oregon games supporting his son. Dude is not some super hood dude. He openly says his favorite artist is Kate Bush lol. If anything, a lot of us can relate to Big because we grew up in the hood and was able to partake in different shyt that people thought was “weird” There are Big Boi’s and Andre’s in the hood.. that’s partly why we identified with them. Especially if you’re from Georgia.
