Andre 3000 Goes to the Head of the ‘Class’
Andre 3000 is officially kid-tested and mom-approved — well, for the most part. The Outkast member brought his animated children’s series ‘Class of 3000′ to the Cartoon Network last year, and this week, Andre released the show’s soundtrack, ‘Class of 3000: Music Volume One.’
The album features fourteen songs — each written and produced by Andre — that incorporate the rapper’s eclectic flavor of gospel, jazz, R&B, soul, funk and reggae. Among the new tunes are ‘Oh Peanut,’ ‘Banana Zoo,’ ‘Fight the Blob’ and ‘The Crayon Song.’
In addition to executive producing the show, Andre also lends his voice to the character Sunny Bridges, a musician who gave up his career to teach gifted musical students. The second season of the popular series premiered last month.
