André 3000 has delivered not one but two tracks as a Mother's Day surprise. André plays bass clarinet on both songs. The songs are called "Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)" and the 17-minute "Look Ma No Hands". "So #Andre3000 shares a song on Mother's Day about his mom who passed on his bday...& his dad who passed a year later and damn man this his heartbreakingly awesome", wrote The Roots drummer. According to Pitchfork, the songs were recorded "several" years ago. "Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)" is like a trip back in time for the Atlanta rap legend and an ode to his late parents.

A rather surprising turn of events over the weekend has seen a collaboration between Andre 3000 (yes, THE Andre 3000) and British singer/songwriter/producer James Blake.

The APC state publicity secretary, Nwabueze Oguchienti , said that the protesting youths should stop stampeding the party.

Andre also seems to have caught the Instagram bug, finally joining the social media service with a burst of posts continuing the Mother's Day celebration. On the first one, the legendary rapper-singer pays a tribute to his late mother Sharon Benjamin Hodo who passed away on May 28th, 2013, a day before his 38th birthday. "I'm sure all the cards, dinners, flowers and last minute gifts are appreciated but I've learned the best gift a parent could get is to simply know their child is ok".
