DJ Quik Says Andre 3000 Started AIDS Rumor About Him
DJ Quik calls Andre 3000 "Andre Badu," and says the OutKast member started a vicious rumor about him.
The legendary West Coast producer hinted that he was less than pleased with Three Stacks, letting fans know that he would let fans know exactly what the problem was soon enough:
Andre 3000 had some interesting things to say about me..., stay tuned— DJ Quik (@djquik) October 1, 2013
Will speak on the Dre 3K comment tomorrow. Not even emo.— DJ Quik (@djquik) October 1, 2013
Quik followed through, claiming that Andre 3000 reportedly told Andre's brother that he "got the monster," most likely referring to AIDS.
Andre 3K told his brother that I was sick and that turned into "DJ Quik got the monster." Big rumor in the Midwest. Thanks Andre Badu— DJ Quik (@djquik) October 1, 2013
Quik's "Andre Badu" nickname for Andre refers to the OutKast rapper's past relationship with Erykah Badu. The highly-publicized relationship between the rapper and singer has often been a point of criticism for many Hip Hop fans who claim Andre's divergence into a more eclectic style of music and fashion occurred as a result of Badu's influence.
Andre 3000 has yet to speak on the situation, and Quik has yet to elaborate.
