Andre 3000 dropped two new songs for Mother's Day. The songs are more jazz-focused and have Andre on the clarinet more than rapping.

 

The 17-minute song "Look Ma No Hands" is just an instrumental with James Blake playing the piano while 3 Stacks plays his clarinet.

 

Blake himself has been active on the hip-hop scene. He's collaborated with Travis Scott, Frank Ocean, Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Kendrick Lamar.

The next song “Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)” has a jazz vibe and has Andre himself hopping on the clarinet. The vocals are honoring his parents who died in 2013 and 2014.

 

Fans are still waiting on an OutKast reunion, the duo performed at a handful of festivals in 2014. Andre 3000 has been featured on a ton of songs, and it looks like he's still close with Big Boi. He tweeted a photo of the two of them with Big Bois son at highschool graduation.
