XXcLusive: Big Boi Shooting Videos For Almost “Every Song” on Long-Delayed LP

Outkast rapper Big Boi spoke with XXLMag.com recently about his upcoming and long overdue album Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty.

“The album is done,” says Big Boi. “Right now I’m just shooting videos. I’ma shoot a video for just about every song on the album. I shot like five videos so far, for the past three weeks. I’ve been editing those videos… it’s coming man it’s coming. I know everybody’s been waiting and I’m anxious to give it to them. But it will be here soon. Trust me.”

As previously reported, Sir Lucious Left Foot was initially set to drop in 2008, but has faced several delays since. In late 2008 he released the video for “Something’s Gotta Give” with Mary J. Blige and many other cuts have also hit the net including, “Ringtone,” “Dubbz” and “Royal Flush” with Raekwon and OutKast partner-in-rhyme Andre 3000.

However, it seems the ATLien’s got more in store. “I got the singles figured out, it’s a couple of options. I have a song called ‘Tangerine’ that may be a single and a song called ‘Shutter Bug’ that was produced by Scott Storch that may be the single so, it’s definitely on the way, it’s coming and I have webisodes and a whole bunch of fun things for the consumer to get an insight on what I’ve been doing and just about me; showing them all about me.”

Big says the album will feature Andre three stacks, Jamie Fox, B.o.B., and Sleepy Brown. Fans can also expect production by Scott Storch, Lil’ Jon, Organized Noise and myself.

Although there is still no date set for the album release, Daddy Fat Stacks says that the album should drop in a couple of months and describes it as “Action-packed! It’s a funky, wild ride and I’m ready to let it go!”

In the mean time, Big Boi is featured on “Tightrope,” a new single with Janelle Monae. —Brooklyne Gipson

    Yeah, I can’t wait for this. I know it’s gonna go hard. It’s going to be interesting to hear him on a Scott Storch beat.


  • Bubbatwo420

    What happened to the march 23rd release date? COME ON AND RELEASE THIS ALREADY DAMNIT!

  • George Clooney

    Didn’t Outkast pretty much already do this with that horrible Idlewild shit. I’m jus sayin.

    And yeah, I’m more looking forward to seeing Big Boi and 3 Stacks work together again. On the same album. On the same songs. Together.

  • George clooney

    And rappers need to stop putting out so many videos and just concentrate on making GOOD videos. This shit happened with actual songs first (blame Pac and I guess Lil Weezle) and now it’s happening with videos. Quality over quantity is just a lost concept in hip hop these days.

    I’m definitely looking forward to this, it’s long overdue.

  • The real chris

    I been a fan of Outkast since day one, but dat Speakerbox album and that Idlewood album was not that good. The Love Below by itself was a classic, but Speakerbox? Take away ” I Like the Way She Move” and name two other hits from that album.

    • Izzy Price

      two other amazing songs off Speakerboxx – Bowtie and Rooster. Idlewild had some goodies too, coincidentally the weaker songs are Dre’s. But The Love Below is definitely classic.

  • no hate

    Daddy Fat Sax and Andre Three Stacks…

  • tronthadon

    Real shit Leroy Love Below is on tha same plateau as Dark Side Of The Moon sum classic shit to touch tha sky 2(get stupid high)

    Outkast has put out an album, on average, every 4-5 years since Southernplayalistic.I think fans want more videos from Outkast, because it’s such a long wait between projects and people aren’t burnt out on seeing them like with lil wayne or t-pain.Besides all the videos might be dope, u haven’t even seen them yet.
