Big Boi: ATL to the Bay

Approaching two decades in the music game, Big Boi has displayed the ability to consistently drop quality material. Others, with knees at similar depths, have had the trouble of becoming flat-sounding old timers. He proved that he could remain relevant without his partner in crime, Andre 3000, by dropping one of the most heralded hip-hop albums of 2010, Sir Lucious Left Foot The Son of Chico Dusty.

Prior to blessing the Bay Area with his presence on the solo dolo (no Cudi) tip, Big Boi answered a few questions for Oh Dang!.

Listen to "Shine Blockas" (ft. Gucci Mane)

Listen to "Tangerine" (ft. T.I. and Khujo Goodie)

Describe the experience of touring on your own, as opposed to touring and doing shows as part of a duo.

I’ve always had fun being on stage, whether it was with Dre or riding solo. On Speakerboxx and Idlewild, I performed solo as well, so its been a while since a full Outkast performance has actually happened, so having fun and rocking stages solo hasn’t been anything new.

You've probably been asked a million times about Outkast converging again. What group(s) would you like to see reconnecting and jumping back into the studio together?

I wish Bob Marley was still around and the Wailers. I am a big fan of Bob, my grandma got me hooked on him.

On "Shine Blockas," you dropped a very Bay-centric phrase, "Yadadamean?" I assume that Bay lingo has permeated your vocabulary over the years. What would be your list of top three Bay slang phrases?

“Get hyphy.” “It's all good.” “Can you feel me?”

Break down these individuals: Daddy Fat Sax, General Patton, and Sir Lucious L. Leftfoot.

Sir Lucious L. Leftfoot is my nickname that is a more mature side of me. Daddy Fat Sax – My funky persona. General Patton – The general that just goes in there and rips up the spot, no questions asked.

Rather than ask, "When is Outkast getting back together?", when is The Dungeon Family going to put out another collective project?

Dungeon Family, Dre, Goodie Mob--we all working in the studio right now cooking up some good stuff. I can’t let anything outside of that out but definitely stay tuned.

Lastly, what do you like most about visiting the Bay?

The hyped up fans and the beautiful city, a lot of culture and color. I can dig that.


Big Boi will be performing in San Francisco at the Regency Ballroom on Thursday, September 23, 2010.


Ninoy Brown is the pseudonym for one of the most hip-hop school counselors you'll meet. You can peep his other stuff at FOBBDeep.
