Sorry
by T.I.

Album: Trouble Man (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • This confessional finds T.I linking up with Andre 3000 as they both make amends for times they've wronged those close to them. During a listening session for Trouble Man at NYC's Germano Studios, T.I. said he hounded the Outkast rhymer several years for a collaboration. "And [then] six years [later], I got a call and he ready, [he] basically s--t on me on my own record," he openly admitted of Three Stack's verse. "But I'm saying s--t in my verses that he can't say, and I can't change that."
  • Amongst Andre's apologies on his verse is one to his Outkast partner Big Boi, where he appears to allude to a strain in their relationship. "I'm sorry I'm awkward, my fault for fu--in' up the tours," he raps. "I hated all the attention so I ran from it."
