My boo Antwan “Big Boi” Patton and his boo, Sherlita, were spotted in New York celebrating the release of his highly anticipated album, Sir Lucious Leftfoot: Son of Chico Dusty.
Mr. & Mrs Sir Lucious make such a cute couple!
Big’s album dropped Tuesday (July 6th) and he’s been on the grind every since. Hitting up the likes of The George Lopez Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, 106 & Park and even CNN, where he discussed leaking “Looking For Ya,” the song he did with Andre 3000 that Jive blocked from his album.
“It’s really blasphemy,” Big Boi says of the label’s keeping the pair from being featured together on his solo project.”Hopefully, when I do see [Jive] again, and me and Dre get into the studio, they will let the creativity and the music be what it is — just art — and appreciate it for what it’s worth.”
Released on Def Jam, “Sir Lucious” combines stories of everyday life, love and politics with rap, funk, jazz, rock and everything in between. And even though Big Boi knows how to show listeners a good time, one aspect of OutKast and the two men behind the music has been their ability to “educate and entertain,” a theme that continues on “Sir Lucious.”
“I like to say little things to make the listener think,” Big Boi reflects. “If you have the globe as your stage, why not spread something?” (source)
Big is back in town and ready to celebrate the successful release of his album with his home town. He’ll be at the Best Buy in Atlanta’s Stonecrest Mall today (July 8th) personally signing copies of his new cd.
