We reported in January about the difficulties Andre 3000 was facing with his exclusive Benjamin Bixby clothing line due to over pricing and a limited demographic to whom the clothes attracted CLICK HERE TO READ but hard work obviously pays off as Andre was in Canada this week unveiling the line of pastel sweaters and striped shirts and various other garments to fashion connoisseurs up north in Toronto. Obviously the line isn’t going under after all but when questioned by a journalist as to what obstacles he faced in bringing such a high end line to the stores, Andre stated that being black and not being gay were issues he faced, saying “being an African-American was a challenge, as there’s a perception out there that ‘hip-hop stars will just throw their names on anything.’”
In other Andre 3000 news, his cartoon The Class of 3000 which has been running on the Cartoon Network for over two years will be hitting the stage when it comes to life for a series of dates in Atlanta. The one hour play will be showing at the Alliance Theatre up until March 29th with hopes of it going on the road to various other cities throughout the Summer.
