Here Are Random Moments of Andre 3000 Playing a Flute in a City Near You
On Sept. 4, Jeff Staples, the founder of Staple Design, a New York-based visual communications agency specializing in clothing collection, creative agency and retail, posted a video of his meeting with André 3000. "Lunch with a 🐐 & his flute 🎶," Jeff wrote as the caption of the video, which features the "Hey Ya!" rapper holding his signature double flute and showing off a beaming smile.
Like many Three Stacks sightings, this recent clip caused a social media frenzy with fans hoping the soft-spoken rhymer would be returning to music. Two years after blessing Kanye West and Kid Cudi with vocals for their song "Fire," off the Kids See Ghosts album, there isn't a new update on when André will be releasing new music himself. All fans have left are the moments between him and his flute, or casual run-ins on the street with fans.
In 2019, media producer Antonia Cereijido jumped on Twitter to brag to her followers about her once-in-a-lifetime encounter with the 45-year-old rapper. Since that moment went viral, André has been seen across the country with his flute in tow. From a yoga class in Philly to Atlanta airports, he's sharing his music in a different way in recent years.
Fans who are lucky enough to see Three Stacks in person are in a group of their own. Every moment captured on camera shows him happily minding his own business or allowing fans to approach him as if he's not a mystical figure in hip-hop.
Here, XXL highlights the random moments of André 3000 playing his flute and posing for pics with fans. Look out for Three Stacks and his double flute in a city near you.
