One-half of OutKast, Big Boi, Birthday is today
Born and raised in Georgia, Big Boi turned his attention and focus to music at a young age. He attended Tri Cities High School in the early-1990s and met Andre 3000, his OutKast partner, there. The group signed with LaFace Records and released their first studio album in 1994. With a multitude of platinum records under their belt, the duo released Speakerboxxx/The Love Below in 2003. The album reached No. 1 on Billboard 200.
In addition to OutKast’s six studio albums, Big Boi has released two of his own: 2010′s Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty and Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, which was released in 2012. He’s also been in video games, on TV shoes (“Law and Order,” Nick Cannon’s “Wild ‘n Out”) and has even made his way into a feature film – 2007′s Who’s Your Caddy?
Happy Birthday, Big Boi!
