UGK's 'Int'l Players Anthem'  is one the best tracks in Hip Hop history, and Andre 3000's verse on it is arguably its highlight.

Jeff Sledge, a former Jive Record A&R, explained that when the late Pimp C first heard 3 Stack's verse, he wasn't feeling it at all.

"You know how it starts with André doing the thing. It's kinda almost with no drums. Its a capella and stuff. When André sent his piece back and had no drums, Chad [Pimp C] was pissed off," Sledge explained. "He was like 'Fuck Andre, man. How the fuck is he gonna send my shit back and take my drums out?' Fuck that."
Sledge convinced Pimp C to give it a chance.

"I was like, 'Chad, look 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 you, 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 fucks up, it's on you."
It's safe to say it didn't fuck up.
