"UGK and OutKast‘s “International Players Anthem (I Choose You)” may be a certified Hip Hop classic, but the song didn’t come together without a little friction between Pimp C and André 3000.

While appearing on LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s The Shop series, 3 Stacks reflected on the late Texas rapper being “really mad” at him when he submitted his verse for the 2007 hit.

“Rest in peace Pimp [C], but I got a [funny] story about that,” André said when co-host Paul Rivera asked him about his verse on the song. “Pimp was so mad at me because they sent the beat and I wrote my verse, put my words down and I took the beat out for me to rap.

“When I sent it back to them, Pimp was like, ‘fu#k this muthafu#ka, man! This n-gga done goddamn took my beat out! Who the fu#k he think he is?!’ So he was really mad at the choice that I had made to take the beat [out].

“I don’t know if it was Bun [B] or somebody, they were like, ‘Nah, but you don’t understand, when that beat drop, though, it sets it off.’ So it’s almost like a set-up. So it worked, and once he got that, he was like, ‘Okay, okay.’ But he was so mad at me.”

Check out a preview of the episode below ahead of its premiere on YouTube on Thursday (July 11). Guests also include s3xyy Red, fashion designer Jerry Lorenzo, BMX athlete Nigel Sylvester and comedian/actress Jiaoying Summers.

Veteran A&R Jeff Sledge previously told this story on an episode of ItsTheReal’s A Waste of Time podcast in 2016.

“When André sent his piece back and had no drums, [Pimp C] was pissed off,” he explained. “He was like ‘fu#k André, man! How the fu#k is he gonna send my sh1t back and take my drums out? fu#k that.’ He was going off about André taking the drums out.

“I was like, ‘Chad, hold up fam. Let’s rock it like that because when André doing a capella and then when the beat drops, that’s when your verse drops. And then your verse is gonna lift the record up because now the beat is rocking and your verse is kicking.’

“And he’s like, ‘Alright, Jeff. I’m gonna give it a shot. If it fu#ks up, it’s on you.’”

Juicy J, who co-produced “International Players Anthem” alongside DJ Paul, also shared an interesting fact about the song in an interview with HipHopDX in 2020.

The Memphis rap legend revealed that the track was originally supposed to be a Three 6 Mafia song but label politics got in the way of them appearing on the final cut.

“Me and Paul had did a verse on that first, and the label — we didn’t even know this — the label had denied the clearance,” he said. “I was like, ‘What the fu#k?! Why y’all didn’t let me know?!’ I was ready to go up there and cause hell at that label.

“So then they put OutKast on it. I didn’t even know. I was like, ‘What happened to our verses?’ They were like, ‘We couldn’t clear y’all so we put OutKast on it.’ I was like, ‘fu#k! Put our verses back on it!’ André 3000 and muthafu#king Big Boi? Legendary.

“I called that label and I can’t even tell the sh1t I said. I was so fu#king mad […] I think we had ‘Stay Fly’ out or ‘Poppin’ My Collar’ was at radio and they didn’t want somebody else to come with a single. You know, [label] politics.”

He didn't. That's a Three Six Mafia beat originally.

He was right. Going from Andres verse to that beat drop to Pimps verse was an excellent set up.

Three 6 version was trash compared to the version released. They brought nothing to the song and they’re my favorite group of all-time.

And it ended up being a great choice because that beat drop is perfect.

Plus the spoken word / convo type verse was perfect without the drums.

The three 6 version
Is it just me or were the vocals not high enough on this song. Love the song but hated that.
