Big Boi’s new video for “Shine Blockas”, featuring Gucci Mane.
Over the last few years, Dre started changing up his style a little bit. Not too much, but enough for the true fans to notice. He slowed his verses down and chose his words carefully, but still made sure they had the same power. The best examples are all on guest spots. Check out the top 5 examples of the ever-changing Andre 3000 flow, below.
1. UGK (Ft. Outkast) – “International Players Anthem”
So, I typed a text to a girl I used to see/ Sayin’ that I chose this cutie pie with whom I wanna be, and/ I apologize if this message gets you down/ Then I cc’d every girl that I’d see see ’round town…
2. UNK (Ft. Andre 3000 & Jim Jones) – “Walk It Out (Remix)”
Walk it out like a usher/ If you say “real talk” I probably won’t trust ya/ If you wanna go to war/ The gun’s my pleasure/ Even Jesus Christ had 12 disciples on the level, trigger, whatever…
3. Devin The Dude (Ft. Andre 3000 & Snoop Dogg) – “What A Job”
We do it for that boy that graduated/ That looked you in your eyes real tough and said “‘preciate it”/ And that he wouldn’t have made it if it wasn’t for your CD number nine…
4. Sleepy Brown (Ft. Outkast) – “I Can’t Wait”
I’m laughing at the calendars and clocks/ Ascot to match the socks/ Whats in your Speakerboxxx?/ Pink And Blue…
5. John Legend (Ft. Andre 3000) – “Green Light”
So I went hard, like Medusa starin’ at me…
