"Int’l Players Anthem (I Choose You)" is arguably OutKast's best collaboration cut.

The 2007 single includes UGK, and Andre 3000 has a show-stealing verse about giving up his bachelorhood.

But it turns out UGK's Pimp C got angry when Andre submitted his verse.  Andre explained why on LeBron James' HBO show The Shop.

"Rest in peace Pimp, but I got a story about that," Andre began. "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, 'Man, f*ck this muthaf*cker, man! This n*gga gon' gotdamn take my beat out! Like, who the f*ck he think he is?'" 

"So he was really mad at the choice that I had made to take the beat," the OutKast legend continued. "I don’t know if it was Bun 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."

The full episode airs on Thursday, July 11, at 12 p.m EST.
