Andre 3000 has revealed that he isn’t in a good place artistically.
His thoughts and feelings below…
In an interview with ‘Broken Record’ podcast he revealed that he has lost the confidence to create the kind of music he’d like to make.
I haven’t been making much music, man. My focus is not there, my confidence is not there.I haven’t been motivated to do a serious project. I’d like to, but it’s just not coming. In my own self, I’m tryna figure out where do I sit. I don’t even know what I am and maybe I’m nothing. Maybe I’m not supposed to be anything.I’m just trying to find out what makes me feel the best right now, and what makes me feel the best is when I just do these random kind of instrumental kind of things. They make me feel the most rebellious.
He admits that criticism of his recent material has set him back.
Any little thing I put out is instantly attacked, not in a good or bad way. People nitpick it with fine-tooth combs. ‘Oh, he said that word!’ And that’s not a great place to create from. And it makes you draw back and maybe I don’t have the confidence that I want or the space to experiment like I used to.
