What does Sexyy Red and Andre 3000 have in common? Haters.

Red and 3K joined LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s The Shop for an all new episode. While the two make completely different music- it’s no doubt they both have haters and naysayers. “They still don’t believe in me, so I just be like, ‘I’ma show you who I am,’” Sexyy Red said.

“They don’t understand we really came from nothing and then we be making big achievements. Like, that’s something for us. And then they just be like, ‘You ain’t doing nothing’” she continued.

3 Stacks added his opinion to her sentiments. “Fuel. Use it for fuel. Hater fuel, man, it’s the best sh*t. It’s free energy.”

Sexyy Red replied, “I like it when they talk about me, I ain’t gonna lie.” Andre went on to say, “that sh*t free energy, that make me go in. I love when somebody doubts you.”

Agreeing with Andre, Red added: “Ummm hmmm. ‘Cause I’m now finna show you something.”

We previously reported, on that same show- 3K shared some hip-hop history with the viewers. He recalls, “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. “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, ‘F*ck this muthaf*cka, man! This n-gga done goddamn took my beat out! Who the f*ck he think he is?!’ So he was really mad at the choice that I had made to take the beat [out].”

He continued: “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.”
