Andre 3000’s Father Dies Of Heart Attack After Chopping Fire Wood For Heat Due To Power Outage

Posted on Feb 13 2014 - 9:05am by Funky Dineva


Y’all send a prayer up for my boy Andre 3000. My girl Michelle Brown (Straight From The A)  who is close friends with a slew of folks over in the Outkast camp got a call yesterday reporting some sad news. Lawrence Walker, biological father of Andre Benjamin has passed away from a heart attack. Complete details are still fuzzy at the moment. It’s being reported that Walker lost power to his home due to the ice storms we are experiencing in Atlanta. He went outside to chop some firewood, and when he returned indoors, he suffered a heart attack. Catch these T’s


Its never easy when a child loses a parent. This news extra saddening because Andre just lost his mother Sharon Benjamin-Hoda last may. She passed away in her Rex, GA home. Hoda was 58 and passed away in her sleep one day after (May 28) Andre’s 38th birthday .

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Andre and his family…

    My condolences. Its certainly sad to hear the manor in which Mr. Walker passed away; heart attacks are excruciatingly painful, I know first hand. Its definitely sad to hear that he lost his mother last year. All I can hope is that Andre continues to remember the fond times with he had with his parents and life lessons that he acquired. May they both rest in peace and be at peace in our Lord’s many mansions. God Bless.
