Big celebrated a birthday on February 1st and while I tweeted him on his special day, I haven’t had a chance to personally hug & kiss him this week. I thought I’d take a moment to give Big a lil virtual happy birthday love on StraightFromTheA.com because he always shows me love.
Guess what! My boo Antwan “Big Boi” Patton has been named as the official spokesperson for Crown Royal Black.
Twan announced the good news last night via his TWITTER after meeting with bigwigs at the Canadian whiskey company…
Big also noted that longtime friend, Robert Poller aka “Rob the Barber,” who also happens to be the artist responsible for Big’s classic Sir Lucious Leftfoot CD artwork, contributed to the effort by designing a signature Crown Royal bag featuring Big Boi’s personal signature.
Last night the dungeon family’s own BlackOwned C-Bone and DJ Aaries played host to several of Atlanta’s top DJ’s and media at the legendary Stankonia Studios to give a sneak peek of C-Bone’s upcoming album.
Of course my boo Antwan “Big Boi” Patton was there in support of his homie…
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 Boi (aka Raul the Mexican vampire?), ATLien (Robin from the Hood) & Uncle Darnell (White Pimp)
Big had an entire explanation for his costume, complete with a history and storyline…
