T.I. has recently sat down on B High Atl for an exclusive interview where the Atlanta rapper briefly talked about his collaboration with hip-hop legend, André 3000.
“How did André 3000 collab come about? Man, I really just wanted him to be on there so I waited and paid [laughs].” said T.I.
Then he continued: “André 3000, Eminem and Nipsey Hussle, they give the longest verses that you ever ever ever ever ever get. And when they finish, they come together masterfully.”
Eminem and Tip have previously collaborated on two occasions. First it happened back in 2007, on a song “Touchdown,” from Tip’s “T.I. vs. T.I.P.” album. The song is produced by Eminem and Jeff Bass, the song features the use of electronic keyboard giving a trumpet-like sound. In 2009, Eminem later stated he feels his verse on the song was “horrible.”
Second collaboration happened in 2010, on a song “That’s All She Wrote,” again from T.I.’s album called ‘No Mercy.‘ The song debuted at No. 18 on the US Billboard Hot 100 charts. The solo version of this song by Eminem was also leaked with the additional verse.
