Big Boi Goin Solo

Outkast's Big Boi At Work On Solo Album

Outkast's Big Boi is close to finishing his first solo album, Sir Luscious Left Foot ... Son of Chico Dusty. While few details are known, Big Boi recently told Billboard.com that he's "shooting to finish the album by the end of August" and it should be out later this year. When asked what fans can expect he said, "This album is Big Boi to the extreme. It's like a recession special. I'm talking about what's going on in the world, with everything from rising gas prices to the election. It's just my insights on life up to this point."

In case you haven't heard the first single, it's called "Royal Flush" and features Big Boi's homeboy Andre 3000 and Wu-Tang Clan's Raekwon and it is most certainly what the kids like to call dope. Lucky for you, we're showing off this fresh track right here:

Billboard also reported that Big Boi's collaboration with the Atlanta Ballet, "Big" debuted last month. Apparently if all goes well Big Boi is taking his ballet on an international tour. I guess there ain't much that dude can't do.

They did their stuff independant from each other as a 'group' all along, so this shouldn't be much of a stretch. Can't wait for the onslaught of comments of disgusted people complaining that he don't have a guitar player...(you know what i am sayin') Let's remember, the Doors had no bass player. Hahaha! Having said that, I don't care for outcast or big boi either. Just killing time. Gotta read an article like this, coming outta jambase. Hahahahaha. Whatever.

Should be a great album. Looking forward to hearing it. Andrew 3000? How hard is it to proofread a 2 paragraph long article? WTF?

Now that is what I'm talking about BOI! That sounds like some old school Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik. I saw OutKast in '01 and they were nasty. This song is raw too. I like it.

Andre 3000's Love Below was phenomenal a few years back. Big Boi should definitely do this album justice. Looking forward to check it out.

Whoever wrote this article is an idiot..."homeboy", "fresh" and "dope" used over the span of two sentances, even an intern would't do that.

Big Boi can definitely flow. He is one dope homeboy. This album should be fresh!
