Andre 3000 Accidentally Orders Uber Pool, Random Fan Ends Up in Kanye West's Studio
A fan of Andre 3000’s was wildly surprised when she was whisked away to Kanye West’s studio after Andre accidentally ordered an Uber Pool instead of a regular Uber ride.
Sources told TMZ that Andre 3000 had just landed in L.A. for a studio session with West and was joined by another Uber Pool passenger. He was in the city to help put final touches on West’s new album Waves.
Uber Pool is a carpool option of the ride-sharing service, in which the driver can pick up more than one passenger and drop them off along the way to the final destination.
Reportedly, the other passenger and Andre 3000 had a lot of common, and had even lived in the same place in the past. Since they got on so well, Andre 3000 invited her into the studio to meet West, French Montana, Diddy, Kid Cudi and 2 Chainz.
West's seventh studio album, Waves, is set to drop Feb. 11.
In other news, Andre recently appeared in Season 2 of the ABC drama American Crime . Shortly after his appearance, in an interview with Billboard he talked about his new music and being in the studio with Erykah Badu -- Andre recently appeared on Badu’s mixtape But You Caint Use My Phone, for a duet with his ex.
"I've been holding back for a long time, so now I'm really interested in figuring out some type of music to do," he told Billboard. "I'm always recording. ... I can't say that I have a target right now."
He also revealed he was interested in appearing in American Crime due to a close relationship with showrunner John Ridley. The two worked together on the adaptation of Jimi: All Is By My Side, based on Jimi Hendrix.
