Andre 3000 Speaks On Verse For T.I.'s "Sorry," Says He's "Proud" Of Big Boi

Andre 3000 says that Big Boi previewed songs for him from his upcoming sophomore album.

Andre 3000 gave a rare interview to Fuse yesterday, speaking on a handful of subjects including how he chooses his collaborators and his involvement with Gillette's Movember campaign. During the interview, he touched on his standout verse on T.I.'s "Sorry," a cut off his upcoming album Trouble Man, stating that the duet has been a long time coming.

"T.I. and I have been trying to do a song for a long, long time," he said. "It was always for me, it's about the actual song or the project. I'm never going to do something just to do it. I went to the studio and checked out some music and as soon as that song came on and his lyrics came on, it kind of hit home for me. It was a song I wanted to be part of."

He also spoke on Big Boi's upcoming sophomore album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, explaining that his OutKast partner would play him songs every few weeks. He says that he's "proud" of Daddy Fat Sacks, and can only imagine how difficult it is to record an album on your own.

"Since he started working on it, he'd come by and play songs every couple weeks or whatever. He finally wrapped it up. He's actually here in New York promoting it right now and I think it comes out next month, so I'm definitely proud of that dude because we started as two people. I know how hard it is to write your own raps for a whole album."

    "and can only imagine how difficult it is to record an album on your own" That statement makes Big Boi sound like a little kid who still needs his mom to help dress him. Big Boi is a grown man and shouldn't rely or need Andre for anything other than an occasional shout out.

    andre 3000 is a diva bitch. big times his old friend big boi at album time. always busy doing nothing. do another remix with drake and chris breezy andre. or do another gillete commercial, the whole world loved that one. i see big boi as still having juice and a need to create, and i see andre doing everything but create. andre has the most overblown image in rap. he's out of ideas and washed up.

    It's been a good 2 years since i been King and he's been with it, so I'll have to be the one to honor this and say that it ain't always you get the favorites on one song by two of them, so be live ATL. It's everything you could ever think of, you found yourself without anything further you had to do, this ain't just coming from anywhere, I'll bring the hood till its spilling out the A..

      I feel you.... if ya'll paying attention, big boi sounds like he's a little pissed with Dre. Dre didnt even do any songs on Big Boi album and when they do interviews, they seperate when it comes to outkast..... also in the other article, Big Boi says Dre wouldnt do any songs cuz of some gilette shit... something is wrong with this.
