And this the type of shit that'll make you call your rap partner
And say I'm sorry I'm awkward, my fault for fuckin' up the tours
I hated all the attention so I ran from it

from T.I. (Ft. Andre 3000 & Stacy Barthe) – Sorry Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

I feel like he’s talking to someone…

Maybe not just the snippet, but the rest of the song could be talking about Sir Luscious

Outkast was suppose to have a tour in 2006 but Andre was focused more on acting so he backed out of it. This forced Big Boi to do the tour by himself. This also could refer to the fact that they don’t tour anymore due to Andre 3000’s apparent stage fright.

Andre’s former rap partner has commented on the line during an interview on Hot 97: “He’s apologizing for being awkward at shows? Apologize for turning down a million dollars a night,” he said. “He didn’t want to perform no more, but that’s understandable.”

This line clearly resonated with fellow rapper Kendrick Lamar:
