Celeb Watch: Andre 3000

by on August 3, 2012

Given his recent collaboration with Rick Ross on ‘God Forgives, I Don’t,’ I wanted to dive into the Three Stacks files a bit and pay homage to him.

Andre 3000 is the definition of a Renaissance man. He’s easily remembered for the standout hits he made with OutKast in the early 2000’s – but he’s just as notable for his quirky (yet always pulled together) fashion sense, recent collaborations with some of the biggest names in the music game, developing acting record, and clothing line set to re-launch soon.

I’ve always been an Andre 3000 fan, and it seems like he’s on the fast-track to making a more permanent place for himself in the public eye. He’s re-launching his ‘Benjamin Bixby’ clothing line – now to simply be called ‘Bixby’ –  and he says that we’ll be seeing a lot from him musically in the next year or so, with a solo album set to release sometime in the near future. To learn more about Andre’s future endeavors, check out this great GQ interview released earlier this year.

Andre’s fashion has always been a favorite of mine. It’s safe to say that his style is all over the place, as sometimes he looks like he just stepped out of the 1830’s, other times he’s a dapper and sleek modern gentleman. He always looks so put together and unique – setting him apart from the methodical man syndrome that’s overtaken much of the men in the music scene. I love how well he can pull off all sorts of hats, his most consistent fashion statement – something most men (let alone women) cannot do.

Although it’s obvious, I must say that he’s a creative genius and such a talented, confident individual; he makes me wish there were more like him in the entertainment industry today. I can’t wait to see what’s to come from Three Stacks in the future.
