Antwan “Big Boi” Patton has announced his departure from Jive records and has signed a one album deal with Def Jam for the release of Sir Lucious Leftfoot: Son of Chico Dusty.
In an excited tweet sent Friday, Big exclaimed that the deal is done and he’s finally free to release his music:
I’m heading over to Stankonia one day this week to get the low down, but apparently Def Jam CEO L. A. Reid, who first signed Outkast to the label over 15 years ago reached out to Big Boi to release the solo project under Def Jam.
Sir Lucious Leftfoot: Son of Chico Dusty is currently scheduled for a May 2010 release. Congratulations Twannnn!! It’s about dayum time.
Check out this new pic Twan dropped from his TWITTER page yesterday. He and George Clinton kickin it on the video shoot for “For Yo Sorrows.
The song was first leaked right here on SFTA and can still be downloaded for your listening pleasure. Big Boi’s highly anticipated and much delayed, “Sir Lucious Leftfoot: Son of Chico Dusty” drops March 23rd.
