Happy 36th Birthday André 3000!

Submitted by on May 27, 2011 – 10:49 am14 Comments

Today marks André Lauren Benjamin‘s, 36th birthday.

While the Atlanta, Georgia native hasn’t put out an album in six years now (the last one being OutKast‘s Idlewild), André 3000 has kept himself quite busy by jumping on countless remixes, launching a clothing line, dabbling in acting and more. As reported by Spin.com, he has also teamed up with Beyoncé for a track called “Party” on her upcoming album, 4 (releasing June 28).

Beyond being an incredibly innovative and talented lyricist, André is known for a brazen fashion style which pushed the envelope when it comes to usual rapper attire. Straw hats, suspenders, bold neck and bow ties are just a few of his signature looks. In this, our tribute to André, we’ve also included five random facts you may not know about the star:


1. Is of African American and Native American descent.

2. Can play guitar, bass guitar, saxophone, violin, keyboard and harmonica.

3. Is vegetarian.

4. Was part of film production company “A Band Apart” with Quentin Tarantino and Lawrence Bender until 2006.

5. Is finally working on a solo album!

    I saw Andre 3000 with Tiffany Limos at Waffle House on his birthday! Me and homegurls walked in a freaked out. We got a 3 second video of them! Boo-ya!

  • Reese Charles says:

    Oh Andre 3000 is so overrated. He will never be anything but a rapper. He is a lying asshole who sleeps unprotected with women in Atlanta and sleeps with his employees. I really hope that he gets his just due. Also he is broke and cannot afford a house in Dallas, Texas to be with his son Seven Benjamin. He lies to this one girl he is seeing named Tiffany Limos all the time. Poor girl. All he can do is features on songs for money. He’ll never make it as a serious actor.
