Andre 3000 Recalls Car Crash That Almost Ended His Life: We Didn’t Know What Happened Until We Woke Up In The Hospital
Outkast rapper Andre 3000 is working on an upcoming book and details a time in which he almost lost his life.
Mike Ayers, interviewed Andre 3000 for his forthcoming book One Last Song: Conversations on Life, Death, and Music, where he got candid and opened up about a nearly fatal car accident that occurred when he was a child.
“When I was younger, me and my friend were in a car accident. We were riding with my friend’s mom, but we were so young, we didn’t know what happened until we woke up in the hospital. I didn’t know, I was a kid.”
He added that the car crash took place in Atlanta and a man with one of the first working cell phones was able to call an ambulance, possibly saving their lives.
“We were on this street in Atlanta and it was a non-busy street, and fortunately, this guy who had money passed by, and he had one of the first working cell phones. It was like a suitcase and he was able to call an ambulance. If we didn’t have that cell phone, we would have been out there for a minute and might have died.”
Now, Andre 3000 i is spending his time playing the flute. He was most recently seen Sunday (September 6th) greeting someone with his flute in hand.
