LOS ANGELES – Sometimes Andre 3000 wonders: “Will I be the ‘Hey Ya!’ guy forever?”

The Grammy-winning rapper says he hasn’t figured out what to do next in music. His last album with his bestselling group Outkast was released in 2006. Their hits include “Ms. Jackson” and “Hey Ya!”

Andre 3000 said in a recent interview that he feels “self-doubt” and wonders at times if he already had his last shot at musical success. He says pondering the next career move is “really scary and really exciting at the same time.”

The performer is the star of the Jimi Hendrix biopic, “Jimi: All Is by My Side,” released last week.

The 39-year-old says his next move in music will be solo instead of working with Big Boi as Outkast.
