    i really feel like kool keith doc oc, dooom, whatever is really progressive... andre is biting him, but andre is only biting him in what he wears, his mc stylings are quite a bit different. i don't think anyone could pull off biting his mic skills without getting totally dissed....well, maybe avalanche...i dunno. similar...whatever.

    b-tuss makes me say things that seem to make sense at first...then...it's all shit

    On one track you call out Andre from Outkast, do you want to elaborate on that?
    Andre. Andre Benjamin, he's a big fan of mine. I'm so honored that he is. I think Andre is a great big fan of mine. I don't think Big Boi. I think Big Boi is a separate entity.
    But I seen that I had a lot of influence over Andre, you know, as a child growing up. I seen that I had a lot of influence. And, from what I learnt, that what I used to see, in syncopation, I've seen a lot of my images totally at the right time, at the same time. Like "wow, I came out with these glasses and a Kangol." Then I look at TV and stuff and I see him, like "wow this guy has the same hat that I wore in Vibe magazine." Or "this guy has the same outfit I wore to this party on."
    It's like his stylist or somebody, it seemed like his stylist was my spy. It seemed like his stylist is right across the street from my house. 'Cause I used to talk to my friend H and I used to say, "H, this guy has the same stuff." But not when he got weird. Not when he got too weird. I'm not saying I'm going to go all the way. But a lot of little things like the glasses and the blond wig, the little things I used to have, like the Elvis wig. I used to have other wigs just to wear at shows and clubs. And the capes, you know.
    But I remember a lot of the clothes that they wore, I remember when I was with Sony, the same wardrobe had went through my cold eyes. The stylist was trying to make me wear that same wardrobe. And I used to look at them wear stuff, I used to be like "wow, that was shit I turned down." Sony used to try to get me to wear this stuff. And I was kind of noticing in my career, I was like "maybe, I didn't go as far as he did to do what he had to do." Like when I look at a lot of people, it makes me think about myself. I'm like "wow, the integrity." I was saying to myself that I'm a rapper, and I'm good, I don't have to do so much stuff to try and sell myself.
    What I feel about them was, you know, the other guy was a very talented guy I think. I'm happy with their success, but I just think, it was a little more of their visual that sold them. They were very talented, but I just think people, didn't get to see their talent first. I think people saw their clothing; the image was just pushed so different. And now I'm thinking that at the time of Black people, I'm like, when I did all that stuff that they would be doing, and just a pinch of it, they wasn't even ready for it. I think the timing that they came out on their album was, people were ready for it. The stuff I was doing, people was probably looking crazy at me.
    Not to say I wasn't an OutKast person that was into OutKast. I was into OutKast before people know about who they was. When they did the first album, when Goodie Mob was in the video in the backyard eating chicken. The 'Players' thing. You know, "all the players with the afros and braids"; the first album.
    But, it's like once people got into their album, to me it was just a change, like people didn't wanna accept that they did do a different twist. I followed their first album, but when they did the second and third, I felt like" ok, something is strange here, it's like a drastic change."
    But, I really found out about the music industry. They'll market a pink monkey and people will buy it. I just figured out that people will swallow everything, My whole observation was, I was a big blueprint in their career.
    What happened was, when I was at Sony, the company seen what they could have done. They've seen what I was doing and they're just into an extra dimension of it. But I wasn't trying to go that far. 'Cause I was a good rapper. I don't think I needed to do as many things as they did. Because at the end of the day I still have my integrity.
    My overall feeling about Andre, I feel like, one day me and him might meet up together, and maybe I might need him to sing a chorus, I might need him to sing hooks with me. I sing my own hooks still, but one day I might help him out on a record. I might have a funkier track for him to rap on. I have no beef with the guy, but I might have a little more funkier stuff for him. (laughs) You know what I'm sayin'?

    R Kelly can wear a zorro mask if he wants man, why do you have a problem with that. I guess we shouldnt wear hats because some guy was the first guy to wear hats.
