What seems to be a previously-unreleased Andre 3000 verse has surfaced on Reddit.
On Thursday, a Reddit user posted a clip of an Instagram live broadcast from producer and former G.O.O.D. Music COO Che Pope. The video shows Pope playing what seems to be an unreleased verse from Andre 3000. The instrumental is from the track “Cops Shot the Kid,” from Nasir, Nas‘ 2018 album produced by Kanye West.
In the accompanying thread, users began speculating about what happened. Some believe the verse was unfinished, others believe Andre’s perfectionism played a part. “He wanted to put a verse,” one user commented, “but just couldn’t do one to his liking in time. All the final verses to the album were recorded in like the last 11 days.”
