Andre 3000 in Battle in Seattle

With Big Boi's Sir Lucious Leftfoot ... Son of Chico Dusty solo album set to drop in a few weeks, Andre Benjamin announced his plans to release an album of his own in early '09. Apparently, he's looking forward to doing things on the solo tip despite the rash of high-profile collabos he's been featured on in the past two years.

As he told Rolling Stone:

I’ve pretty much been working with myself,” he explains. “I’ve never really been that big on collaboration.” Benjamin wouldn’t reveal any other details, but he said he already had a goal and a direction for the album. “I have a concept, and all the soundscapes are already in my head, so I just have to figure out how to get there.”

When asked what he thought about the 1999 World Trade Organization protests, which is the subject of the new film, Battle in Seattle, that he stars in, Dre admitted he hadn't heard anything about it until he read the script.

“I don’t know if I was out of the country or in the studio, but I missed it,” he explains. “The first time I heard about it was when I read the script and saw footage of what happened.”
