During last night’s Grey Goose’s Le Melon launch event, Big Boi revealed to the Huffington Post that he has split with Def Jam and reunited with mentor L.A. Reid at Epic Records.  Says Big Boi:

“I just signed a deal with Epic Records. So I’m back with L.A. Reid and Sylvia Rhone. Got a brand new situation. I signed the deal the day after the first Coachella date, that Saturday. That’s my mentor. He understands my music. And one thing about L.A. Reid, there are no creative restraints. He trusts my ear and let’s me make the music I want to make. We love being in business together. That’s my big brother.”

On his next solo album:

“The album I’m not gonna rush. I wanted to put something out before the end of the year. It depends, because me and Dre got a lot of work to do from now until the end of October. [But] you’re definitely going to get some brand new Big Boi material. Two or three singles before the fall.”

    Good for Big Boi.

    Sidebar: let’s just take a moment to appreciate that we just made it 24 hours without another lame “Chiraq” freestyle.
