    <a href="http://www.xxlmag.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/andre3000feature1.jpg"><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-134434" title="andre3000feature1" src="http://www.xxlmag.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/andre3000feature1.jpg" alt="" width="620" height="400" /></a>For years, Andre 3000 has been widely recognized as one of hip-hop's greatest talents. Whether it's his classic work with OutKast or his solo efforts, the eclectic Three Stacks is always able to attack a track with his own, unique style and flavor. He's the quintessential example of "Your favorite rapper's favorite rapper," but even so, he rarely collaborates. And, when he does, it's always a highly anticipated and discussed occasion. Well, that exciting time came once again last week, when Dre's collaboration with Beyoncé, "Party," leaked to the 'net. The track—no surprise—showcased Andre's lyrical abilities and aura once again. What it also did, though, was make us decide to take a look back at his history of guest spots as a featured artist, by the numbers.

    ummmmm, sorry to burst your bubble XXL, 3k did have features between 1995-2001 (which is 7 years; not 6). For example, He was on Slim Calhoun’s “It’s ok”.

  • jtm

    why can’t he just get a album out already?

  • SouthCakC23
