Legendary rapper and artist André 3000 surprised the world with two new singles released on Mother's Day.

Reclusive rap veteran Andre 3000 a.k.a Andre Benjamin served up a double delight for fans on Sunday, May 13, by debuting two new songs dedicated to his late parents. Andre 3000, who buried his mother Sharon Benjamin-Hodo five years ago, chose to channel his pain into two new tracks, "Me&My (To Bury Your Parents) and "Look Ma No Hands". "Me&My" shows off 3000's incredibly underrated singing voice, while "Look Ma No Hands" is a straight up jazz piece that stretches just over 17 minutes in length.

In addition to the new tracks, he took to Instagram to write: "Happy Mother's Day".

The first song, "Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)", was written several years ago while his parents were still alive, with Pitchfork reporting that the OutKast singer recorded the song three years ago, after they had passed away.

A photo of handwritten lyrics for "Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)" is met with a profound caption from the musician, who reflected on the holiday and the inspiration behind the song. Dre also finally joined Instagram and shared incite into the tracks on his IG page.
