INTERVIEW: USHER
“Not many people know this, that [Outkast] was the first crew I ran with. Me and Big Boi—it’s some shit I really fucking regret, man. Yeah, Big Boi had reached out to L.A. [Reid] and Kawan Prather [then both at LaFace Records] about getting me on “I Like the Way You Move,” and at the time—I don’t know—I just made a bad decision not to get on the record. Sleepy [Brown] ended up doing the record, but every time I hear it I always say, Damn, that’s a boat missed. He sold me a dog, though, Big Boi. I got one of his pits.”

Now I have this mental image of Big Boi and Usher at the dog park. And then the dogs get their leashes tangled and it’s awkward but kinda funny and they laugh while trying to untangle their dogs.
That’s how they became friends, I bet.
