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.”
Antwan “Big Boi” Patton aka Sir Lucious Leftfoot aka my future ex-husband held his annual Halloween Party last weekend at Stankonia Studios. The event was held as a fundraiser for his Big Kidz foundation but it was an all adult extravaganza as all of Big’s A-town family supported the cause.
The theme this year was “True Blood” and there were a ton of vampires in the room. Including Mr. Patton himself…

Big had an entire explanation for his costume, complete with a history and storyline…
My boo Antwan “Big Boi” Patton joined Keri Hilson in Chicago yesterday (October 21) for the launch of the “Get Schooled” campaign.
Keri and Big stressed the importance of education to students at Chicago’s Collins Academy High School during Thursday’s Get Schooled National Challenge and Tour.
[Sidebar: Somebody needs to tell Keri to back up off my man! *Whooo-sah!*]
Big Boi told the crowd how he planned on pursuing his education before OutKast blew up.
“Before I started doing music, I was actually planning on going to school to study child psychology, but when I was in eleventh grade we went platinum. I still finished and graduated with honors.
Miss Keri, adorned with her now signature “No Boys Allowed” necklace, hit the stage to perform “Knock You Down” and offered some key advice to the youth.
“I think the key to making it through high school and life in general is knowing what’s important, attacking that, and executing everything,” said Keri, a former co-captain of her high school basketball team.
