In 2002, André 3000 was referenced on the song "Till I Collapse" by Eminem, who considered him one of the best rappers ever.
In 2003, Outkast released Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, a double album which highlighted the differences in the musical styles of the group's two members.
The film centered on life in a 1930s setting and the album took influences from music of that era, particularly blues.
Benjamin had a few rapped verses on the album, including on the first single "Mighty O", but mostly stuck with singing as he had on The Love Below.

Rolling Stone compared Benjamin to "an indie-rock Little Richard" on Outkast's 2003 Number 1 international hit "Hey Ya!
In addition to music and acting, Benjamin has also been an entrepreneur.
In the spring of 2008, he launched a clothing line called Benjamin Bixby. In high school, Benjamin (who was then performing as Andre) met Antwan "Big Boi" Patton. Shortly after graduating from high school, Outkast was signed to the Atlanta-based La Face label and released their debut album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, in 1994.
The album actually postponed the release of the theatrical Idlewild, as Andre 3000 and Big Boi were concentrated more on the production of the music than the movie.
In an odd turn of events, the movie was finished before the album was, and because of that, the movie was postponed about a year.
