Andre 3000, actor and one half of the rap duo Outkast, has a very passionate fan base that has been waiting patiently for new music.

Rumors of a new Andre 3000 project generated gossip over the weekend, but according to recent reports, fans might just have to wait a little longer.

In an official statement from Andre 3000’s camp to Billboard, his reps threw cold water on the prospect of a 2014 solo release.
