Andre 3000 met a random chick during an Uber drive and decided he would take her to one of Kanye West’s studio sessions. In other news, Nate Parker is totally taking over Sundance Film Festival with his Birth Of A Nation film. Find out what awards he won and get the deets on 3 Stacks’ random encounter inside….

Well this is random.

Rapper Andre 3000, who stars on the new season of “American Crime,” touched down in L.A. recently to hit the studio with Kanye West as he finishes up his WAVES album (Feb. 11th). It was a star-studded session with some of Ye’s celeb friends, including Diddy, French Montana, 2 Chainz and even gospel artist Kirk Franklin.

Well, when 3 Stacks showed up he came with an unexpected guest. According to TMZ, Andre called up an Uber ride to head to the studio. When he booked the ride, he mistakenly ordered an “Uber Pool” verses a single passenger Uber and ended up in a car with unidentified woman.

Apparently, as the two were rolling through L.A., they hit it off and found out they both live in the same place. So, 3 Stacks decided he would bring the woman with him to meet the fellas in the studio. Oh, to be her at that very moment. While she didn’t stay long, it was reported she got the chance to meet and chop it up with guys in the studio. How random is this? Can you imagine being the girl in the Uber and Andre 3000 hops in the car?

Talk about one hell of an Uber ride.
