Andre 3000 Reacts to Drake Leaking His Song with Kanye West’s Diss Verse

Andre 3000 released a statement in response to Drake leaking Kanye West’s unreleased Donda track, “Life of the Party,” which featured a guest verse from the Outkast member.

The Atlanta rap legend called the track’s leak “unfortunate” and explained the process of the record. According to 3

Stacks, he was approached to do the song weeks ago and was inspired to deliver a musical tribute to Kanye’s mother.

While “Life of the Party” was well-received by listeners, Andre 3000 said the track did not make the final cut

of Donda because he was unaware of Kanye’s intention to deliver a clean album. He also claimed he was unaware of

Kanye’s diss towards Drake.

Andre 3000 concluded his statement by stating he would have liked to be on Drake’s Certified Lover Boy and would

like to work with Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z, Tyler The Creator, and Lil Baby in the future.

Look below to view Andre 3000’s full statement:

A few weeks ago Kanye reached out about me being a part of the Donda album. I was inspired by his idea to make a

musical tribute to his mom. 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. I thought it was a beautiful choice to make a clean album but,

unfortunately, I didn’t know that was the plan before I wrote and recorded my verse. It was clear to me that an

edited ‘clean’ format of the verse would not work without having the raw, original also available. So, sadly, I had

to be omitted from the original album release. 

The track I received and wrote to didn’t have the diss verse on it and we were hoping to make a more focused

offering for the Donda album but I guess things happen like they are supposed to. It’s unfortunate that it was

released in this way and two artists that I love are going back and forth. I wanted to be on Certified Lover Boy too.

I just want to work with people that inspire me. Hopefully I can work with Kendrick on his album. I’d love to work

with Lil’ Baby, Tyler and Jay-Z. I respect them all
