    A lot of rappers like Jay-Z, Too Short, Logic, 50 Cent, etc. either retired or threatened to retire only to break their promise and come back with more music.

    Andre 3000 retired a long time ago and still has yet to attempt to make a comeback/

    Nope, he's still dropping guest verses from time to time, very rare but still

    His guest verses are usually 10/10 but he's basically retired and often said to be so too. I guess Ma$e would be another example (even tho The Oracle could have been a massive comeback track. Ma$e pls come back...)

    I would love to hear something more than a guest features tho, he's easily one of the greatest ever smh. Even short EP would satisfy me

    3 Stacks is wholesome af. A solo project would be dope but I'll take the occasional guest verse anytime. He always stole the show on other peoples s---

    Exactly, that's why it pisses me off, he's so talented and could easily be bigger than he is, but for some reason decided to "retire". Outkast stuff is obviously top notch, but solo album would put him even higher.

    Maybe one day, who knows, Black Thought wasn't dropping solo projects too and look at him no, 3 albums deep now lol

    He’s got that Dre perfection curse, I bet he’s got hundreds of solo tracks that aren’t “good enough” :emoji_slight_frown:

    Good points made.

    Actually, the more I think about it, the more I think Joe Budden might be the right answer.

    As much as I want another outkast album (I even have a outkast tattoo)

    I’m glad he retired. His legacy stays in tact . Eminem almost completely ruined his by not staying retired. If Andre gets the spark back to hand in a classic . Then take my money. But I’m satisfied with the work he did and the features he’s done since his retirement
