I'm sorry Ms. Jackson, I am for real

from Outkast – Ms. Jackson Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This song is mostly directed at Ms. Wright — aka Kolleen Wright, the mother of Dre’s baby mama Erykah Badu’s. But André chooses to replace her name with the generic “Ms. Jackson” so that this song would remain to all of the baby mama mama’s in the world.

André revealed in an interview that he was too nervous to address Erykah’s mom face to face, so he decided to apologize indirectly through this song. Ms. Wright loved the song, as Erykah revealed:

“It was her chance at stardom. She got the airbrushed ‘Ms. Jackson’ shirt, the bobble-head doll. It was on her screensaver. She had the ringtone. That was her chance, so I just let it be.”
