Wow, really making it more and more difficult to not see any kind of rift, though we’ll post his statement from a purely professional standpoint and hope that he’s not downplaying Big Boi’s latest remix for ‘Pink Matter‘ and the (soon to be released, we hope) ‘Sorry’ remix:

“It’s important for me to be clear about the origins of my contributions to ‘Pink Matter’ and ‘Sorry.’ I was approached as a solo artist by both Frank Ocean & Tip. I discussed musical direction with each artist and completed my verses. It was after that when Big Boi’s name came up.I never want to mislead our audience — I worried that some would think these were Outkast collaborations. These songs are not Outkast collaborations. I discussed this rationale with Big, Frank and T.I. and everyone agreed. That is why I was surprised to read about these remixes. I understand that anyone can put out an unofficial remix to any song but I have an obligation to be honest with fans about what this is . . . and what it isn’t.”
