When Big Boi released “In the A” yesterday, we noted that T.I. sounded recharged, but, as evidenced by “Sorry” with Andre 3000, it wasn’t a fluke. With a hook sung by Stacy Barthe that goes What should I be sorry for? Who should I be sorry to? one might expect a rude 16 bar tell-off, but both TI and Andre deliver a new kind of braggadocio here—one full of personal anecdotes about the tumult in their respective careers. Three Stacks is particularly revealing, dishing his insecurity about his rapping (I used to be a way better writer and a rapper), and apologizing for letting Big Boi down, saying, This the type of shit that’ll make you call your rap partner/ and say I’m sorry I’m awkward/ my fault for fucking up the tour.
