It’s been a while since OutKast’s last recording. And with Big Boi remixing “Pink Matter“ and “Sorry” soon, 3 Stacks sets the record straight on his partner’s inclusions.
“It’s important for me to be clear about the origins of my contributions to ‘Pink Matter’ and ‘Sorry.’ I was approached as a solo artist by both Frank Ocean & Tip. I discussed musical direction with each artist and completed my verses. It was after that when Big Boi’s name came up.
I never want to mislead our audience – I worried that some would think these were Outkast collaborations. These songs are not Outkast collaborations. I discussed this rationale with Big, Frank and T.I. and everyone agreed. That is why I was surprised to read about these remixes.
I understand that anyone can put out an unofficial remix to any song but I have an obligation to be honest with fans about what this is … and what it isn’t.”
Occasionally, Andre 3000 will remind a “pussy ass nigga on the Internet” that his verses are good. And last year, nothing stood out more than his bars found on T.I.’s apologetic, “Sorry”. Boring? Definitely far from it. Manipulating his flow over Jazze Pha’s product-shizzle, 3 Stacks asks for forgiveness from the fans and Outkast’s other half, Big Boi: “And this the type of shit that’ll make you call your rap partner/And say I’m sorry I’m awkward, my fault for fuckin’ up the tours/I hated all the attention so I ran from it/Fuck it if we did, but I hope we ain’t lose no fans from it.” Nope, we’re still here.
“And this the type of shit that’ll make you call your rap partner/ And say I’m sorry I’m awkward/ My fault for fuckin’ up the tours.”
It’s never too late to apologize and on T.I.’s “Sorry”, Andre 3000 shows remorse to his OutKast partner, Big Boi. While at Tip’s listening session last night in Atlanta, General Patton says he actually approves of the rhyme. We’re fans of niggas that can rap too.
“And all some pussy nigga on the Internet could say is that verse ain’t good.”
Accepting no apologies, T.I.P. and 3 Stacks each deliver on the latest track off T.I.’s Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head. This is far from being boring. Purchase the track on iTunes. Album drops December 18.
While at Tree Sound Studios, T.I. explains how his upcoming Andre 300 collaboration “Sorry” materialized.
Yours truly heard the recording a few weeks back, and it’s probably one of 3 Stacks’ best verses in recent memory. Pinky promise. Trouble Man arrives December 18th.
As the strum of their guitars provide the soundtrack, connect these dots and you will find Bobby Ray’s brand new music video featuring 3 Stacks.
Hey ya! After much speculation, IFTN confirms that Andre 3000 will play Jimi Hendrix in the legendary guitarist’s biopic, All Is By My Side and that it will begin production in Ireland later this month.
The project is currently in pre-production in Wicklow, with principal photography set to begin in three weeks time in Dublin and Wicklow. The shoot will last six weeks in total.
‘All Is By My Side’ will be co-produced by Irish producer Tristan Orpen Lynch for Dublin-based production company Subotica Entertainment alongside ‘Donnie Darko’ director Richard Kelly’s Darko Entertainment and Britain’s Matador Pictures. The three companies will produce the movie under the banner of Watchtower Film Productions, with offices based out of Ardmore Studios.
