Big Boi Promises Three Outkast Albums For 09

Despite the delay in his solo project, Big Boi says Sir Luscious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty is back on track for next year, coinciding with his partner, Andre 3000, who will also release a solo effort. The duo also plans to release an album as a group, making the release of three projects from Outkast official.

“Me and ’Dre were on the conference call [recently].” Big Boi told MTV. “He’s working on his album; my album is done. We’re gonna wait until the top of the year— January or February—to put it out. Then ’Dre is gonna come hit y’all, and [then] we’re gonna do the Outkast album. So y’all gonna get three records from the ’Kast next year.”

Besides working on music, Big Boi has also been honing his acting chops. He will appear on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit Tuesday, Nov. 25, starring as Gots Money, an animal smuggling rapper who goes undercover for the authorities when he is caught. -Starrene Rhett

    This is my nigga no I’ll will toward him. As a matter of fact I was @ the Aquemini Party 9 yrs ago and me and Andre 3000 were playing NBA Live 99 I beat him 187-55! I had Bill Cartwright killing he had 80 pts! Luke Longly had 60 pts! If anybody wants probs you see how Trick Trick didn’t mention me!!! He is scared shitless of bringing our run ins up!!!!!

    i wont get my hopes up until dre 3000 releases a statement because he is the one who always holds out because he has an acting role.

  • Worley

    “an animal smuggling rapper who goes undercover for the authorities when he is caught.” Not a good look.

    I’ll wait for the Outkast “group” album. I don’t know if I can take too much of either one of these dudes solo.

    • capcobra

    Man I been a kast fan since SPCM, but when Dre started wearing diapers and cod pieces I cant say I followed them. Dre is way under rated as an MC, I get tired of dre getting all the credit. Half these motherfuckers aint even REALLY listened to no Kast albums. They just jumped on Dre’s nut cuzz eminem mentioned him in his top five a few years ago. Now everyone hails Dre as the flow like it has the cure for cancer in it. I mean he’s dope… but he aint no biggie, or nothing like that. Niggaz need to start showing Big Boi some respect, he had the better of the two albums on the last one and held IT DOWN on SPCM and others

      I can’t believe there is someone besides me who believes big boi is one of the most underrated mc’s in the game. I am very particular when it comes to this subject and I have listened to EVERYTHING OUTKAST has come out with so far. But, mainly I just look at it from the perspective of Big Boi and Cee-Lo both have two rhymestyles that can never be duplicated tell me one rapper who can jack either of their swags? Top 5 underrated(in order of skills) 1.Black Thought
      2.Big Boi
      3.Mos Def
      5.Styles P

      I know I might get roasted for that last one but just listen to that CD “A Gangsta and A Gentleman” and tell me it wasn’t slept on.


      • EReal

        Cee Lo?

        • blackcaesar

          Yeah, go check out Black Ice from the Goodie Mob album “Soul Food”. Also, you could just listen to “Southern Playalistic Cadillac Muzik” and listen to “Git Up, Git Out”. I mean Cee-Lo was well known for rhyming as well as soulful vocals. Check him out!

  • DV8

    I will be buying all 3 albums

  • Nate

    Go steal a Source or XXL “killa”. Whether or not you wear a leather hat, they are in style.

    Save that extortion money for a couple months and you can afford to buy one.

    And Trick doesn’t mention you because he doesn’t want anyone to know that he was the one that stabbed you in the supermarket line. Especially since you snitched on him to the cops and newsmedia…

    Big Boi is a real artist.


      Nate!!!!!! Imma find you and when I do you better run for ur fuggin life cause its over when the dogs catch u its str8 over ur gonna be eating outta a straw for 5 wks nigga!

  • internet thug slapper

    daddy fat sacks, possum jenkins, cee-lo brown, slimm cutty calhoun, cool breeze the champ, big gipp, big rube, rico wade, sleepy brown, the list goes on. bring back the dungeon family please if hip-hop needs anything, if southern hip-hop needs anything it is the dungeon family. I know even in darkness was mad slept on…and it could have been better but the point is we need some of that real southern hip hop. back when the south had something to say. i know some niggas still do other niggas in the south just haven’t fully developed they mic presence i aint hatin’ we can all get money no matter what. black folks, educate yourself 08(oh hate) is almost over did u build or destroy your future? its never too late. allah has a blessing for all of us, alou ahkbar… we need to stop hating on each other and perpetuating a stereotype of ourselves to other races and cultures. rap is diverse hip hop is universal god is everywhere make it happen for the next generation the future will not wait for you to decide your destiny TAKE WHAT IS YOURS your rightful place as a king/queen in the astral and physical plane. sorry for all the ranting… B.L.A.C.K. means better learners adaptors conquerors and kings


  • sam

    yea im not so sure i wanna hear the solo albums from each as “outkast” sometimes being on each others songs. i wanna hear old outkast again, not that i didnt like the love below/speakerbox but i’d definitely rather hear songs like rosa parks, ms. jackson, b.o.b etc


    big boi is dope and underated. andre3000, is elite.
