Andre 3000’s New Album Is Getting IMAX Listening Experience

The screening will also include a Q&A with the rapper.

Last year, former Outkast rapper Andre 3000 surprised rap fans with his new album. The project was called New Blue Sun and before he released it he warned fans that there were “no bars.” He wasn’t kidding about that as the album is a series of long ambient jazz compositions. Andre is present on the record, though he mostly plays the flute and just as he promised doesn’t deliver any bars. The album was met with a mixed response from fans and critics alike.

Many online gave Andre 300 credit for taking such a bold artistic swing. That included some other rappers who took similar interest in potentially expanding their sound into instrumental territory. But many also criticized the album and Andre’s decision to make it. Many fans felt entitled to hear him rapping after waiting so long for new material. Others who are more familiar with ambient and jazz music criticized the project for being a relatively shallow indulgence into those sounds. Regardless of the criticism, fans who enjoyed the album will have an entirely new way to experience it soon.
