The fans spoke and Antwan “Big Boi” Patton listened!
Big took a poll and gave fans the final vote on his next video from Sir Lucious Leftfoot and they chose “Be Still,” which features the angelic vocals of Janelle Monae.
The video was shot over the weekend at Studio Space Atlanta and was done totally in front of a green screen so go ahead and mentally prepare yourselves for a few visual surprises.
You may also notice that there was plenty of Crown Royal Black on deck due to the fact that Big was named spokesperson for the brand back in January.
There are also several cameos, including Killer Mike, Pill and several Dungeon Family favorites. The vid should will be available for your viewing pleasure reeeeal soon but in the meantime, Twan allowed me to grab of bit of behind the scenes coverage.
Check out photos PLUS StraightFromTheA’s exclusive behind the scenes video from the shoot below: Continue Reading…

Mike has been in the studio with Big putting the finishing touches on the project, which I previewed a few weeks ago. There are several surprises on the new CD, including an unexpected love song…
