Big Boi Addresses Andre 3000's Apology On T.I.'s "Trouble Man"

Big Boi also circles back to the age-old question of whether or not they'll release another Outkast album.

On T.I.'s Trouble Man, Andre 3000 spits a verse on the song "Sorry," apologizing to Big Boi for "fucking up the tour." During an interview with Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg, Sir Lucious Leftfoot addressed the line on the record, stating that he has no hard feelings about how Three Stacks decided to go his own way and that he's more focused on his own projects.

"I don't really get it. Awkward... I don't get it. He's apologizing for being awkward at shows? Apologize for turning down a million dollars a night," he said. "He didn't want to perform no more, but that's understandable. I just kept on pushing. Kept on going. To me, the whole thing about the performance thing is, I know fans want to see us do the songs together. But I never stopped touring. I'm on my second solo record."

Big Boi, who also reveals that Diddy directed the video for "Player's Ball," said that he was nothing but supportive of 3K's bizarre fashion choices, stating that it was part of the group's aesthetic. "I was supportive. When he first started doing that, I was like, whatever whatever. We both had our own style. But then, when we did things like Chris Rock, he had on a diaper. I was the main supporter."

As for the elusive Outkast reunion album? "It's whatever man. If Dre's ready to do it and I'm not on tour all around the world, let's go, for sure."

    "think of this when you see a re-package of Nicki's second cd. Yes it flopped" How is going gold a flop? It's called milking her fanbase. Teen girls don't care about record sales and numbers. They want to hear their role model. Yes, that's sad, but it's strictly business.

    Andre Benjamin is one of the top 10 rappers of all-time and he doesn't even have a solo album out.

  • The illiest

      yeah Andre stands out more the big boi, but big boi compliments the hell out of him and vice versa. You can't deny the history these two made....Andre would not be Andre if it wasn't fore big boi and vice versa,,,,,them dudes made magic toghether....OUTKAST

  • Jay

    They NEED to drop another album again. shit would hot instead of listening to a lot of soulless crap every year. Lets get some funk back in hiphop!!

  • Shamba

    If u dont watch the vid the article is a little misleading. Big Boi was not dissing 3 stacks at all.

  • Krem726

    all the people saying andre made big boi are stupid as hell and must have never even listen to an outkast album probably just heard dre guest verses


      ^^^^^FALL BACK LITTLE BITCH!!!Andre would not be Andre if it wasn't fore Big Boi and vice versa. Them dudes made magic together....OUTKAST!!!

      so, i guess you believe that michael jackson didn't make the jackson 5, huh? i guess it was jermaine selling all of those albums?

  • Truth Hurts

    Andre 3000 was the reason that Love Below/Speaker Box sold over 10 million copies. Big Boi ain't nothing but Tito and he knows this. If Andre dropped a solo album, it would go gold in the first week. Big Boi ain't getting no world tours with his solo

      It's safe to say both of them were the reason Outkast was successful.

      "In 1992, RIAA began counting each disc in a multi-disc set as one unit toward certification" ^^ learn the facts if you counted multi cd's like the "Remember The..." projects with 5 cd's they would be top sellers "Nielsen SoundScan figures are not used in RIAA certification; the RIAA system predates Nielsen SoundScan and includes sales outlets Nielsen misses. Prior to Nielsen SoundScan, RIAA certification was the only audited and verifiable system for tracking music sales in the U.S.; it is still the only system capable of tracking 100% of sales (albeit as shipments less returns, not actual sales like Nielsen SoundScan). This system has allowed, at times, for record labels to promote an album as Gold or Platinum simply based on large shipments. For instance, in 1978 the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band soundtrack shipped platinum but was a sales bust, with two million returns" ^ think of this when you see a re-package of Nicki's second cd. Yes it flopped.

    • Real numbers

      the album was sold at double the price of a regular album, so it really did sell 10 million copies. Even though it was a double disc, it still sold for the same amount of money as 2 seperate albums, so haters need to stop that drama.

      Maybe he is the reason, but that doesn't mean Big Boi isn't just as talented. I'd reckon the Love Below was more popular because it went in a sort of pop-ish direction. Hey Ya! and Roses were HUGE singles, and undoubtedly the biggest singles on the dual-album popularity wise, but they weren't big hip-hop records. Big Boi = Andre 3000

    • bOOGie

      it definitely did cost almost doublt, thus why i dont mind the double count since upon first dropping, speakerboxx/love below cost about 25 cash.

    • Brizz

      Bull to call it 10 million when they sold 5. Double count is wack, it dont cost double so in my book its 5 milli, not that thats bad haha. Nah but foreal i love outkast but 10 is like cmon man that didnt really happen. One group did that foreal thou, Guns n roses dropped use your illusion same week and both albums ended up as nr 1 and 2. In the end they are certified 7x platinum. Different era and genre but still sick. PZ.

    • casper21

      gold first week, you think the masses really know who Andre is, shit youngings today don't even know who outkast is, he'd struggle on the charts as much as the next artist, don't kid yourself.

    • Fuck OutKast & Their Families

      Quit being in denial, that shit only sold 4.5 million

  • triPAUD

    big boi is dat dude. he's ill in his own right.


    I was about to say something bad about big boi before reading interview. I'm wondering what kinda problem Andre has.

  • City

    Outkast is one of the best duos in hip hop PERIOD, past, present or future. Ya'll hating @ss bloggers can't even move out your mother's house, ya'll got the nerve to hate on 2 legends in the game. OUTKAST "sold out" shows & records, not their integrity.

  • Anonymous

    big boi wishes he had andre, andre msde him famous, now he is irrelevant trash

    • Kaz

      Kill yourself! They both 2 legends in the game. Not one of them is bigger than the other. The game need both of them whether as solo projects or reunited as Outkast.

  • 70's Baby

    Andre is a fucking sellout.. Its one thing to say you want to chill and do movies, but he is a bitch for hopping on songs with Lil wayne, rick ross, T.I. etc.. You know fake industry niggas

    • ETK

      the only bitch nigga here is you. this isn't fucking high school. Andre has the right to jump on whatever emcee's track he wants. I don't like Wayne or Ross either, but you can't expect emcees to collab with "respectable" rappers only from your point of view... hip hop heads who think like this piss me off

  • Weezy Jnr

    If I stick one finger inside my asshole, will it hurt? Help. I had a dream my father (lil wayne) sucked drake until he came. He had a white moustache on, knaamean.
