Sir Lucious Leftfoot covers the recent issue of Ozone Magazine. In the issue, Big Boi discusses his upcoming release and why he’s still fighting for the integrity of his music:
The people are not picking the music, it’s the suits now picking the music for the people to listen to. There’s not a lot of respect for it. It’s all about the dollar, so they want what sells the fastest. With music being such a fast burn nowadays, there’s a new song today and a new song tomorrow and another one on Wednesday.
My thing is, my focus is to make timeless classics and not conform into what’s going on now.
You tell’em boo!
Big’s Ozone cover story (done by fellow ATLien Maurice Garland) can be read in it’s entirety here.

I’ve been questioning the marketing tactics of Def Jam because I haven’t seen any gung-ho tactics like site takeovers and banners like they’ve done for some of their other artists *cough* The-Dream. I seriously want my boo to succeed but I’m not liking how he’s being treated over there.
