Just last month, the legendary Houston rapper gave Benny The Butcher his flowers, praising the Griselda rapper’s Def Jam debut, Everybody Can’t Go.
He took to Instagram at the end of January, sharing a screenshot of said album from Apple Music and captioned it: “This the one to beat this year. So rap accordingly. Way to go @getbenny big stepping with @defjam on ya shoulders! Hard work paid off!”
Benny hopped in the comments to show his appreciation with three prayers-up emojis. Additionally, Conway The Machine also threw in three fire emojis.
Prior to that, the 50-year-old reacted to André 3000’s appearance on The Late Show with Steven Colbert, during which he cited UGK as one of his biggest influences in addition to 8Ball & MJG, George Clinton, Sly Stone, Jimi Hendrix, John Coltrane, Eric Dolphy, Odd Squad and Kraftwerk.
In a social media clip, the Texas rap legend wrote: “When you realize the people that inspire you feel the same about you, the hard work has indeed paid off. Salute my brother @andre3000.”
Andre’s OutKast groupmate Big Boi commented on the post and wrote: “Facts,” while fellow Texas native Yella Beezy wrote: “Yall inspired the WORLD Unk stop acting so modest !!! Cracc yo shit YALL PAVED THE WAY for us.”
The connection between OutKast and Bun B’s group runs deep as they collaborated on “Int’l Players Anthem (I Choose You)” back in 2007.
A few years back, Juicy J revealed that Three 6 Mafia were originally supposed to be featured on the song instead of André 3000 and Big Boi. In an interview with HipHopDX, the Memphis O.G. said he and DJ Paul (who produced the song together) had laid their claim to guest verse duties on the joint, but their label superseded their efforts. In fact, he said he felt “crazy” when he first heard André’s iconic verse.
