Singer Andre 3000 has sparked further rumours that he has completely abandoned music when he did not contribute vocals to the upcoming DJ Drama mixtape.
According to contactmusic.com, Andre pulled out of OutKast's US tour last month to focus on his acting career and left his band mate Big Boi to put on a one man show.
Andre has now refused to join Bog Boi in the studio with DJ Drama to produce the Gangsta Grillz compilation.
Drama said: "It's been kinda hard. I'm not even gonna lie. God willing, hopefully we'll get something out of him. He's been pretty on the up-and-up about getting on the project. He's been excited about it. But getting him to get to the rhymes is a hard thing."
