Andre 3000 Says He Played His New Album for Tyler, the Creator and Frank Ocean to Test a Younger Audience



Andre
3000
pulled
up
to

NPR

to
speak
with
Rodney
Carmichael
about
his
forthcoming
album.
One
of
the
interesting
pieces
from
the
interview
is
he
gave
an
exclusive
listen
to
Tyler,
the
Creator
and
Frank
Ocean.


I
wanted
to
see
how
a
younger
audience
would
perceive
it.
I
live
in
Cali
now,
so
I
reached
out
to
Tyler
for
him
to
check
it
out
and
I
went
to
his
house.


So
we’re
sitting
there
and
Frank
[Ocean]
just
happened
to
drop
by.
So
it’s
us
three
sitting
there
listening
to
these
three
songs
and
I
just
kind
of
wanted
to
get
an
opinion.
And
it
was
just
good
for
me
to
hear
with
somebody
else.
Because
sometimes
you
can
be
in
your
own
thing
and
think
it’s
a
certain
thing
and
you
just
want
to
have
some
outside…
not
that
it
really
matters,
because
once
you
believe
in
it
enough

I
mean,
I
take
criticism
all
the
time,
but
it’s
not
like,
‘Hey,
do
you
like
it
or
not?’
It’s
‘How
can
we
help
it?’
So
at
that
point,
I
felt
like
we
had
something
because
we
had
a
nice
day
just
enjoying
it
in
a
way.
And
I
started
just
playing
it
for
friends
and
playing
it
for
artists
and
playing
it
for
people
I
respect
or
people
who
I
felt
would
get
it.
