Big Boi was up at the Red Bull Studios and performed Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors’ latest single, “Apple Of My Eye”. Below is rehearsal footage and brief interview.
Army of TWO™ The Devil’s Cartel video game commissions Antwan and Bobby Ray to the battlefield for their theme song. It’s now available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Backed by Jake Troth and Epic Meal Time, Big Boi gets down and puts on a free show in support of his Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors. Album is on iTunes now.
Joined by Phantogram, Big Boi brought some computer love over to Jimmy Kimmel’s stage with a live rendition of Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors‘ “CPU”. The album is just a click away.
It’s been a while since OutKast’s last recording. And with Big Boi remixing “Pink Matter“ and “Sorry” soon, 3 Stacks sets the record straight on his partner’s inclusions.
“It’s important for me to be clear about the origins of my contributions to ‘Pink Matter’ and ‘Sorry.’ I was approached as a solo artist by both Frank Ocean & Tip. I discussed musical direction with each artist and completed my verses. It was after that when Big Boi’s name came up.
I never want to mislead our audience – I worried that some would think these were Outkast collaborations. These songs are not Outkast collaborations. I discussed this rationale with Big, Frank and T.I. and everyone agreed. That is why I was surprised to read about these remixes.
I understand that anyone can put out an unofficial remix to any song but I have an obligation to be honest with fans about what this is … and what it isn’t.”
This may be the closest thing to an OutKast reunion. Debuted on YN’s Keep It Thoro show, Antwan adds his raps alongside 3 Stacks for his remix of Frank Ocean’s “Pink Matter”. Stank us.
Off the heels of Sir Lucious Left Foot, one half of OutKast released another solo album, Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors. However, on this go-round, Antwan took a different approach musically by bridging the gap with his signature sound and other genres of music. Indie pop group Phantogram joins him on the hard-knocking “Objectum Sexuality”. Meanwhile the Swedish electro band Little Dragon provides the soothing tempo grooves on “Descending” and “Thom Pettie” with Dungeon Family member Killer Mike. Still General Patton stays true to the hometown on anthemic “In The A” with his fellow ATLiens T.I. and Ludacris. Longtime collaborator Sleepy Brown tiptoes his vocals over a Jodeci-sample on “The Thickets” while Big’s delivery between the “Lines” with A$AP Rocky is equally stellar. Lies and rumors never sounded so sweet.
