T.I. revealed in a recent interview that elusive emcee Andre 3000 is appearing on Tip's upcoming Trouble Man album. According to T.I., 3000 reached out to him and surprised him in the studio.
"In this room per se, we had Andre 3000, who called me one day - I'm talking about on the humble," he recalled. "I would come into the studio to record every day as I always did at this time, and so my phone rang, I missed the call and then [an associate] said, 'Hey, 3000 called, he said he's coming on the way up here.' He gets here and he says, 'Hey, I know you've been trying to do this song [with me] since 2006, but today, I'm ready.' I said, 'Well g*ddamn, c'mon!' He comes up here, in this mutherf**kin' room here…and this n***a g*ddamn reconstructed my whole g*ddamn song in like 45 minutes."
"If it was anybody else but him, I would have changed my verse and got busy, however, that was the homie and it was like for real, a lot of the sh*t he said was…really sentimental and it meant a lot to me," Tip added.
