K Camp was attempting to get into the music industry via André 3000’s assistant long before achieving gold with “Cut Her Off” and signing a deal with Interscope Records. In an
interview with HipHopDX, the Atlanta-raised rapper stated that as a kid, he was able to obtain her phone number and sent her daily text messages in an attempt to collaborate with the Outkast veteran.
He remarked, “I saw André 3000 once in my life at a movie premiere in Atlantic Station.” “I have no idea what fucking movie it was, but I saw André once, and that was the last time I saw him. ‘Hi, wassup,’ I said. Bro, I remember when I was still living in my mother’s basement. I was about 16/17 years old at the time, and I had André 3000s.
the phone number of the helper I have no idea how I obtained it, but I was texting her nearly every day. I was recording nonsense at the time. ‘Aye André, get on this,’ I say. I tried all I could to convince André to do a feature, but she said, ‘No, no.’”
“However, she was responding,” he continued. I still wish I could figure out who that person was because she was like, ‘Nah, it ain’t happening.’ She didn’t even try to give me optimism; all she said was, “At this point…” Shout out to her. She probably had no idea it was me. But I used to text that phone… it was the only way I could communicate with André.”
André 3000 applauded K Camp for the emotion of his platinum “Cut Her Off” record with 2 Chainz during a 2014 interview with The Fader.
“To make it appear as if it’s nothing, ‘It ain’t nothing to cut that bitch off,’ says the narrator. And, while I can’t speak for K Camp personally, you’ll always have that armor as a whole,” he added at the time. “It’s truly armor,” says the narrator. And ‘Cut Her Off’ is a great song because it’s about a feeling, and he’s being honest about it at the time, and it sounds great. Last year, K Camp was on fire.”
