4. Andre 3000
Label: LaFace Records
From: Atlanta, GA
Active Since: 1993
Career Highlights: Received six Grammy Awards and sold over 25 million records for work with Big Boi as Outkast, has done countless guest verses on major albums, and has appeared in dozens of films and TV shows, including an upcoming HBO movie alongside Big Boi.
A lot of fans clamor for a Andre 3000 solo album, but are we honestly even ready for one? Dre will have fans talking for month with just one guest verse, and he will outright melt your soul if he goes above sixteen bars (peep "Sixteen" with Ricky Rozay). His work as Andre 3000 with Big Boi as OutKast puts him undoubtedly as one of the greatest lyricists of all time. We get the feeling we might get overly-obsessed with 3 Stacks' solo album if it ever gets released.
