Outkast’s Andre 3000 has been making news, while Drake and Kanye West continue to have their issues as both dropped albums in the past two weeks. Andre 3000 flexed his skills on the track “Life of the Party” which was supposed to appear on Kanye’s tenth album Donda which dropped on Aug. 29.
Kanye teased a snippet of the song while Drake played the whole track on Friday, Sept. 3 during his guest mix on SiriusXM’s Sound 42 as the two continue to trade jabs. On the track, Kanye also takes a few shots and disses at his Canadian nemesis. The quiet member of Outkast released a statement on how the track came to be and shed more light on the subject.

It felt appropriate to me to support the Donda concept by referencing my own mother, who passed away in 2013. We both share that loss,” explained the “Sorry Ms. Jackson” hitmaker.
