The hip-hop blogosphere jumped for joy yesterday (Aug. 3) when BET exec Stephen Hill tweeted that Outkast rapper Andre 3000 revealed that he was gearing up for, "a solo album coming top of the year."
Me: hey what's up? You got the movie coming,right? Andre 3000: yeah...and I got a solo album coming top of the year. Me:*droptofloor*

But not so fast, 3K fans. True as Hill's ATLien encounter may be, nothing's set in stone. A representative for Andre 3000 tells Billboard that "there is no official confirmation on that report."
That statement doesn't completely nix the potential of an Andre 3000 album in 2014. It just means it's not locked in.
The rapper's solo effort, "Love Below," was released in 2003. Since Outkast's 2006 soundrack album for "Idlewild," Andre 3000 has been featured as guest on a number of songs including Beyoncé's "Party," Drake's "The Real Her," T.I.'s "Sorry" and more.
