Hip Hop Artist. Producer. Actor. Philanthropist. Big Boi has done it all. From being one half of the legendary hip hop group OutKast, to acting on Law & Order: SVU and films such as ATL, Idlewild and Who’s Your Caddy?, to organizing a nonprofit organization for socially-conscious youth, to prooducing a show for the Atlanta Ballet entitled ‘big’. He’s a renaissance man, and he’s ready to give the world some new music.
After six groundbreaking, classic albums released with the hip hop duo OutKast, Big Boi launched his full-fledged solo career. While he had released a previous solo album in Speakerboxxx, it still was technically under the OutKast name. 2010’s Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty would be his first official solo album as Big Boi. The album was released internationally on July 5 of that year. Guest artists included alternative urban songstress Janelle Monae; Big Boi’s own new group Vonnegutt; T.I. and B.o.B. Sir Lucious Left Foot received general acclaim from most music critics, earning praise for its inventive sound, varied musical style and Big Boi’s lyricism.
Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors will be Big Boi’s second solo album dropping December 11th. The new project promises to be just as genre-bending and exciting as Big Boi’s other projects. Featuring artists like Theophilus London, Little Dragon and Kelly Rowland, T.I., and Ludacris.
