One of our fave style and music icons Andre 3000 of Outkast was charged with driving 109 mph in a 65 mph zone in suburban Atlanta early Saturday morning, according to the AP.

The 33-year-old actor-designer-musician posted a $1,200 property bond pending a court date April 29, and said he was going so fast because he missed an exit and had to turn around.

We’re wondering if he was in a rush because of the “Green Light” with John Legend (“I’m ready to go right now….I’m ready to go right now”)….We know, bad pun!

Outkast’s Big Boi Gets Political with “Sumthin’s Gotta Give”

After Ludacris’ Obama driven song spawned headlines last week, Outkast’s Antwan “Big Boi” Patton makes headlines of his own with his first single, the politically-themed “Sumthin’s Gotta Give” featuring Mary J. Blige, off his solo album, Sir Luscious Leftfoot … Son of Chico Dusty.

“I chose this song first because being in the game, I feel a responsibility to entertain but also lecture about life,” Big Boi told Billboard of his song which speaks out on universal health care, the recession, the war in Iraq, and the historical election. “I’d rather get people to vote instead of running to the strip club.”

In addition to tapping into the frustrations of today’s political climate, Big Boi’s music video also opens with a quote by the man who will hopefully take us out of the darkness, Barack Obama: “If you’re walking down the right path, and you’re willing to keep walking, eventually you’ll make progress.”
