André 3000's jumpsuits from the recent OutKast reunion tour already spawned an art show, and now the rapper announced that the messages will be made into a T-shirt line as well. Those jumpsuits seem to be the only positive 3000 took from his recent jaunt with Big Boi — he has been critical of himself and the tour ever since the end of the trek. Oh, well — on to the next thing.
"You'll be able to see that really soon because people have been asking me," he says in the video below, XXL reported.
It is actually a good idea, since the suits featured some pretty thought-provoking slogans like "Have you stopped growing?," "Life is short take more baths" and "Thinking deeply about shallow sh#t."
"The response was great," he said about the fans and their response to the messages. "It was to start a conversation and that's what it's done. People started to make up their own messages. I saw so many people with black suits on. I was like, 'Oh, This is cool.'"
The rapper explained that the concept grew out of having to perform old songs and not being able to say anything new on them.
Earlier this month, 3000 said he felt like he was "selling out" on the reunion tour and that he did not want to do it in the first place.
"I felt weird about going out on stage and doing it again ... I felt like people would be like, 'Y'all are doing all these festivals, y'all are just doing it for money.' And I felt like a sell-out, honestly. So I was like, if I'm in on the joke, I'll feel cool about it."
If you do not want to play the old stuff, why not make some new stuff?
