Leslie Jones And Jordan Klepper Debate André 3000’s Flute Album On The Daily Show

On Friday, with very little advance notice, André 3000, one of the greatest rappers in history, released his first-ever solo album New Blue Sun. As you are almost certainly already aware, that album includes absolutely no rapping — or, for that matter, any vocals at all. Instead, it’s a full-length ambient jazz record, with André playing flutes and digital woodwinds. The critical response to New Blue Sun has been full of admiration, but you can’t blame people for being a little confused. That confusion became the subject of a recent segment of The Daily Show.
