My boo Antwan “Big Boi” Patton performed at the Tanqueray and BroBible sponsored Winter Elixir Concert in New York last week.
The majority of the audience was said to be made up of geeky college students who looked like college freshmen back for Christmas break. That didn’t phase Sir Lucious one bit. Big hit the stage with some oldies, while enticing the crowd with a little harmless banter about getting f*cked up:
“If you got 21 grams on you, make some noise!.” Big Boi and the hypeman yelled at one point, to moderate cheers. They followed up with the same request, first with “21 lines of cocaine” and then “21 pills of ecstasy” swapped in — and the crowd goes wild.
“I don’t condone drug use… but if you do get high, get high to this.” Then the D.J. dropped epic Sir Lucious Left Foot cut “Fo Yo Sorrows,” and we took note of Big’s fantastic song-introduction skills. (source).
In case you’re wondering, Big says he has two solo albums remaining at Def Jam, and touches on his upcoming Funk-driven follow-up:
“It’s going real good. I’m like five, six songs into it. It’s only gonna be like 10 songs; I’m going back to the old school way of puttin’ albums together.
Hopefully I can be done with it in the next seven or eight months – I’m waitin’ on Dre to finish his record, then we can start plannin’ on some mo’ thangs.”
You betta get on it doggone it!
