The track, titled 'Look Ma No Hands' came part of a 2-song release from the Outkast legend, who released both tracks as part of a Mother's Day deal, so to speak. In conjunction with the new releases, André posted a photo of him and his mother from lower school graduation, the written lyrics to "Me&My", and screenshots of his last text conversation with his mother before she passed.

For the second track, "Look Ma No Hands", James Blake joins 3 Stacks on the piano while he plays bass clarinet. According to Pitchfork, the songs were recorded "several" years ago. He confirmed the songs' legitimacy by joining Instagram with a new verified account.

For someone who has lost their mother, Mother's Day can take you to a sunken place.

That's probably the least you can do to show your mother how much you love her and everything she does for you on a daily basis. If you're a single parent, why didn't you make things work with your boyfriend or husband? You have guided me when I was lost.

The first of the tracks, "Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)" is a piano-driven track with André 3000 leading into a reflective retelling of times spent with his parents. André's mother Sharon Benjamin-Hodo died one day after his birthday in 2013.

Andre made several guest appearances in 2016, notably with Frank Ocean, Kanye West, Solange and A Tribe Called Quest; his most recent was on N.E.R.D's "Rollinem 7's" late a year ago.
