Hey, you guys remember back in 2003 when OutKast released what was basically a twofer solo album in the form of Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, and it was basically the only music anybody wanted to listen to? Good times.
Well, good times are here again! While we all wait for André 3000 to get to releasing some new material, Big Boi has put together an absolutely awesome solo album called Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty. If you like Speakerboxxx (and, let’s be real, you liked Speakerboxxx) then you will like this new album. Done and done.
But! We’re actually more geeked on Big Boi’s new video, “Shutterbug,” off of Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty. The Scott Storch-produced, electro-bass-crazy anthem is pretty much the jam of the summer already, but the Chris Robinson-directed video takes it to a whole new level. Tuxedo-rocking Big Boi (with a puppet band), lady dancers dressed up like extras from “Tron,” Big Boi climbing up a mountain of sneakers, a wall of plastic cups, the world’s coolest Cadillac … and more.
Big Boi’s album is due out July 6.
