“Sorry” Big Boi, But T.I. Got That New Verse from Andre 3000 (Listen)

Posted by Nathan S. on 11/27/12 | Filed under Top Stories, T.I., Andre 3000
T.I. had to know this is what would happen. That he'd drop a big new single off his new album, and all anyone would end up doing is talking about Andre 3000 and Outkast. So yeah, TIP actually comes with it on "Sorry", blah, blah, blah, let's get into 3 Stacks.

Sweet baby jesus, where do I even start. First, I'll admit that some part of me was secretly hoping that Andre's verse wouldn't be incredible, if only because it'd be an interesting change of pace from all the "Andre just stole [insert rapper's name here] track," but...yeah, he kind of just stole this shit from TIP. Not only does he switch his flow up more often than Chad Johnson switches names, he works some real lyrical gems in there.

And if you like drama/gossip, he gives you that too: "This the type of shit that make you call your rap partner and say, 'Im sorry I'm awkward my fault for fucking up the tours. I hated all the attention so I ran from it, fuck it we didn't lose no fans from it."

You dont' exactly need Rap Genius to decode that one. As Big Boi said during his Peter Roseneberg interview, an Outkast reunion tour would easily make both of them millions, but Andre just won't do it, along with refusing to do a guest verse for Big Boi because he doesn't want the attention that would come from a "new Outkast" track.

So there you have it; there's a snowball's chance in hell that the greatest rap duo in history will make another album, at least the way things stand now, so in the meantime we'll just have to be content with Andre randomly hopping on tracks and murdering everyone in his path. Which, you know, I'm totally fucking fine with. Yep, that's not a problem at all. Let's just put it this way - Mr. T looks how I feel about the dissolution of Oukast:

Oh yeah, and T.I.'s "Trouble Man" album drops December 18, or something.
